CXL jacket:     EDIT: Didn't think of it, but this is probably horsehide CXL.   At any rate...   Moratorium on #creastalk?
 I don't consider either bad, to be honest. Neither bug me. Opinions vary. I guess my point was that Alden's are a tier up from Wolverine and still exhibit similar "bad" creasing on firsts-quality.
Ultimately, customer satisfaction is what's important, and if someone feels the creasing is excessive, and they'll never be comfortable with their purchase, then returning them for a refund is just smart business practice. Crane's offered a refund, so they should just be returned.   That said, there's all different degrees of Chromexcel creasing on display from various shoe makers.   The most glaring example I could find in a quick search is these:     Natty CXL...

 LOL, nice eye! You are correct.   And thanks.
  Nice ninja edit. The original one made me 
 I've Sno-Sealed my W1K CXL's and Shell Cordovan 721's in my oven, and both are more than capable of achieving good shine or sheen. If anything, melting wax into the boot only makes it easier to get a high shine from, at least in my experience. I haven't found any conditioning or weatherproofing treatment that can't be tailored around to achieve whatever degree of sheen or shine you desire. A little kiwi wax and elbow grease and you can shine pretty much anything, if...
