    Looks great! When did you get those? Looks like a lighter shade of color 8.

    Thanks. I got them within the past year at one of the seconds sales. They are seconds in fact, so they could have been made some time prior to that.

    That makes sense. AE burgundy shell used to be much lighter. I had (and sold) a lovely pair of bright cherry red shell park aves that I got for 299 in a seconds sale 3 years ago. It arrived caked in black wax polish, but once I stripped that away, the color was glorious. Like yours!

    Many thanks! The shaft is unlined, which makes me regret I need to wear heavier socks with them, as the reverse size of the grain is delightfully soft to the touch.
