Natural with age

Ryan from you_have_broken_the_internet posted a great comparison shot of Horween’s natural chromexcel. On the right is a new swatch and on the left is a similar piece that he kept in his back pocket for a year. This shows that the leather darkens significantly with handling, heat, time, and perhaps a bit of indigo. While Alden shoes made with this leather won’t endure the exact same conditions, I believe they will darken up and gain a nice patina through normal use and maintenance. I can’t wait to find out!
