Nick@Horween advised strongly against Lexol on Shell Cordovan, giving no explanation, while many others, including myself, have had good luck with Lexol on shell.   As far as I'm concerned, Nick@Horween's advice is baseless.   The proof is in the pudding; Crane's has well documented his exploits and care regime, and his boots look great and are holding up. It's also a simple an inexpensive treatment. I see little reason to deviate or experiment other than personal...
 I didn't mean to turn it in to that, I was just surprised. I need to try Ned Ludd - even my therapist recommended it.
I'm a midwest boy and haven't explored the Best Coast much. I finally made it up to Seattle a few months ago; the food up there absolutely shits on PDX offerings, which I found hilarious given the food-snobbery 'round here.

Don't even know if Grado makes IEM's, but are known for their on-ear headphones. I had a pair of SR-80's and hated them. Terrible sound, terrible comfort, terrible construction. I used Etymotic HF's in the past with Comply tips and loved them... until I lost them in China somewhere; have been meaning to pick up another pair. They sounded great to me @$100, and I see no reason to spend $200 MORE for the ER-4's. I used them coming out of a Sansa Clip+ and on my, at the time,...
 Not likin' that exhaust-wrap brah  Otherwise, lookin' good    Good God. Impressive. It's been 40-50 and I'm not even willing to go wrench in the garage.
