I can't seem to find the pic, but Bart or someone posted a pic of the Dark Tan a couple years back.. I wanted to order one, but don't see the option for dark tan any longer..

Anyone have any idea as to why ?

Two things going on here. First, the dark tan Horween was SO stiff that it was hard to work with and (I think) customers sometimes complained that the finished product was a little crude looking (same was true of the camel). Second, Horween was such a PITA to get leather from, GS felt that they could no longer work with them.

Why they have not found a Horween substitute in dark tan that is almost as stiff, but easier to procure is something I don't know.
