I always do a couple of coats when I get them. Some boots are on the shelf quite awhile before they are sold - the leather tends to dry. And a well oil boot seems to break in faster.
Yes, a nice little out of the way town!
Millerton! Cool, I was married in Millerton (I'm from Torrington). I shop at Terni's quite a bit, Phil gets some nice stuff.
You might want to call Chippewa, that is how I found that Schott in NY had the "copper" color Homestead. And they have links on their site. Here is one possibility: http://www.ruzeshoes.com/p-6546-chippewa-original-6-homestead-boot-crazy-horse-mens-casual-dress-boots.aspx
I use Filson boot oil with a light coat of Saphir cream. And I found the Red Wing to be excellent boots - I just prefer the Chippewa.  
The first set of pictures are my "crazy horse" leather Homestead boot after a couple of months. My latest are the Homestead "Copper" Ok, some points: First, Chippewa boots are about the most underrated boots around. I have owned Red Wing, AE, Alden, Viberg, Trickers, and White's Semi Dress, yet the Chippewas are hands down my favorite - often priced hundreds of dollars less. They are rugged, well made and you just can't kill them. I really like my new "Copper Caprice"...
 Very nice indeed!
Does anyone have any experience with this jacket? It really is rather nice.       http://www.manufactum.com/mens-nigel-cabourn-tweed-jacket-p1465067/?a=28092
When I speak of modern vintage wear I'm speaking of newly made products that keep faith with traditional styles and methods. More on the work wear or manly side.   For instance Bemidji's Voyageurs Jac Coat   http://www.bemidjiwoolenmills.com/details.php?itemid=bm07_101   Or, Johnson Vests   http://johnsonwoolenmills.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=186   Or Filson's Harris Tweed...
Workwear is eternally cool...
