They do vary, my boyfriend has a darker blue pair in Thavar, but he saw a pair in store which were much lighter. They must be from different runs or different LABs I think. I remember having 81M years ago, one pair was really light and had nicer stitching on the leather patch, the other was much darker and the stitching was different. They do vary a lot when from different lines. Don't they still product 8B9 now? It's been out ages, so it might have changed over the seasons a bit maybe?
