    Did you still get them? They seem like they would work easily with jeans, chinos, or dressier pants, in casual or business casual contexts. If you wanted one shoe to travel with, this could be it.

    I think these should obtainable. Perhaps Leather Soul or another quality vendor could help us...

    Yes. The commando sole works well in the PNW.

    I'm having a hard time deciding between cigar or #8. I've always liked the burgundy, but the cigar has really caught my eye...

    personally, #8, interest to hear what other says. I always felt #8 is a nice middle between cigar and black.

    My personal feeling: #8 is a staple, but cigar is more interesting.

    if you are buying them new, get the cigar as they are harder to come by. you can get your #8 fix through ebay or b&s

    I remember you mentioning that B.Nelson did the natural edge trim work for you. Could you give us the details? and what you asked for when filling out the order form?
