    My #8 looks pretty close to black in person, I didn't get them from Tom BTW.

    I have some new #8 dress chukka's which are also very dark. I am expecting them to lighten over time. I did get mine from Tom. (can't get pics)

    Can the #8 color lighten to a medium brown over time?

    Yes, but it will always have a bit of red/burgundy about it.

    Wow thank you sir. Does anyone have evo pics of their #8s?

    Yes, but it will always have a bit of red/burgundy about it.

    I get the sense #8 lightens over years, but if you want a dark brown or medium brown cordovan shoe, there are many options out of the box (cigar, ravello, "dark brown" Darlton, etc).

    Cordovan will get lighter in sunlight. However, the shell has usually been tanned to the dark colour for a reason: to hide imperfections and blemishes. The lighter colour will reveal these spots. Here's an article from Horween on the subject: [link]

    Those look good - is that what whiskey looks like without flash? I might consider it now...i always thought it was wayyy too light.

    Whiskey also darkens over time.
