    ^ Same can be said for a diamond. I agree that Color 4 is just another shade of the Alden rainbow, but exclusivity adds to its allure.

    I'm with Sevenfoldtieguy in that I think Color 8 is the quintessential, most versatile shade.

    Is that chromexcel? Wouldn't baby your boots. That's how it will look. My Indys are made of the same leather and the more you break it in, the better it looks.

    Fill those in with some brown polish - I just hit my 403 with kiwi brown and was able to fill in the lighter colored scratches. Cream polish might work even better as it should have more pigmentation.

    Here are some pics of the #4 WTB and #4 Captoe Boot, with their Ravello WTB cousin in the middle. No real sunlight today, but the outside natural light shows off the color. The #4 WTB definitely looks lighter than the #4 Captoe. All 3 boots from The Shoe Mart.

    I love the Barrie, but a #4 captoe boot on the Plaza would be incredible.,,,

    AE's black shell has historically been opaque, sometimes even gray-ish.

    However, AE now finishes its black and burgundy shell differently, making them closer to Alden's black and color 8.

    sevenfold - thank you !

    Looking at these pix, the #4WTB has definitely lightened....The difference between the #4 and Ravello was much more pronounced when I first got them.

    I don't understand how you people decide which pair of nearly identical shoes you're going to wear on a day to day basis..
