in a rust dillema: TS Rust vs TS Port?!?!
Okay, so I ordered some TS supreme hunters in rust, because i didnt want that orangey rust they make the schoolies in. I know they make the supremes in a more true, redder rust. I am extremely upset to find that theyre on backorder for atleast 6-8 weeks. well, i don't have six to eight weeks.
so after scouring every corner of the internet as well as all the local tack stores, i have come to no luck. the only place that had them online was farmhousetack, which is where i ordered from. even though it said they were in stock on the store page, theyre backordered :cry: i'm fairly upset. i was so excited to get to wear them to a show i have coming up, as well as many more shows coming up this spring and summer, and i bought a new coat and shirt to go and everything. i am REALLY not willing to wait 8 weeks--itll be the middle of summer by then!
that being said, while i was desperately going through the internet, i found one site that had TS in port. i thought i remembered them being a plummy purpley color, but maybe it was a different color, the last time i thought i saw them in person. But, on this picture, they look pretty nice. They almost pass off as a really dark rust, is the first thing that came to mind. I REALLY do not want to buy the rust schoolies, but i am going to do that this weekend if i can not find anything else. but i am posting here because i am wondering, could i pull off wearing the ports? in this picture, they look like a dark rust, and ive definitely seen darker rusts before. however, it could be my screen or something, because i notice that some times pictures look different on here than they do on other computers.
i wouldn't be buying them on there, i'd buy them in a local tack shop that i know has them; if i were to buy them.
what do you think? who has these? could they be considered a rust? it's a stretch, but if you can't tell, i'm absolutely desperate :sadsmile:
that being said, if anyone has a pair of 26R TS supreme hunters in rust laying around, i'd be glad to take them off your hands for you :D
sigh. i'm going to hae to spend a good hour digging through the consignment room of horsemen's outlet this weekend in hopes of stumbling across a pair. i know they always have a number of rusts in there, but theyre usually cotton pull ons that id never wear to a show.
