    New acquisition, Frank?

    Like the socks. Did they tie-dye them themselves?

    Yes, I dark welt, though dark brown as Alcibiades describes it. I myself also like it with the Ravello.

    And these are relatively new. Been working on breaking them in. The socks are custom tie-dyed by the young relatives. It's become a traditional birthday and Christmas gift from them. I love it.

    Kind of disturbing that I knew that. What a sickness!

    My cindies are pretty dark too. This is okay - it goes with my wardrobe and I already have whiskey/ravello - but I'm thinking that due to demand for lighter colors somebody might have decided to make cigar a little darker so that they could use a wider range of hides... maybe, maybe maybe...

    How's this example of #8 variation? The Wolverine 1000 Mile 721 LTD (A&E #8) vs the newer dark #8 on these newer PT boots.

    Those look great, not easy to find. How long ago were they purchased?
