    Wearing my slate blue today and I swear it feels like it has less lining and is far lighter than my rust one I bought a year ago. Does anyone else with Chipp grenadines have any experience with some ties feeling lighter and less substantial than their other ones?

    I'll have to take out the food scale tonight and weigh them to be sure.

    Just pulled the trigger on these puppies:



    Was torn on what colour to go with and couldn't decide between oxblood or walnut. Ended up with walnut as I thought they might go with more of my wardrobe.

    Good luck! The reason I say that is AE Walnut varies widely in color. Some are more orange, some are more brown. I love the color in that stock photo but mine are more on the orange side but I am ok with that. They have worn in nicely.

    Congrats - I find that I wear the wine the most. At least mine (which is a year plus old) is a lighter burgundy color that is really versatile and interesting without being too off the beaten path. Hard to go wrong with any of the colors you have (we have the same colors, except I have black instead of navy).

    Thanks. I'm sure I'll end up with the black and possibly darker purple before long. I don't have much use for brighter/lighter colors like khaki, yellow, or fire-engine red. My M-F suit ensemble is mostly navy and grey suits with white and blue shirts and muted ties.

    I also have the dark purple and it's pretty fantastic. Generally all the colors above work great in a traditional business wardrobe (blue/grey base, with some browns mixed in). Makes picking a tie rather easy, except now trying to pick which color I want to wear that day.

    Aw crap! I like the colour in the photo which is why I opted for the walnut instead of the oxblood. I suppose I'll have to check them out once they arrive. I bought them from the Shoebank too, so fingers crossed, they don't have any HUGE defects.

    Ha! As did I. It was my third boot purchase this winter, so I am set for a few years :lol:

    Regarding the color variations with walnut, if you get them and don't like them, you can always try different color polishes to alter the color to something more of your liking.

    @.brian. well crap. After reading the post about the flash sale at the Shoebank today I went on the website and noticed they had a pair of Daltons, in bourbon, in my size. Those boots were NOT there yesterday which is why I went for the walnut ones. And because shipping to Canada is such a pain in the ass, I doubt I'll return them if they are not to my liking. This are my first pair of Daltons BTW. So what do you wear with the lighter colour(ed) boot?

    @DandyLion nice find. I've toyed with the idea of picking up that pair of shoes. I'm just not sure how to wear them/what to pair them with.
