My new pair of 1000 miles came with a starter care kit, and I'm not sure which one to use Leather creme or the Leather conditioner?   I watched the 1000 mile care video and he pointed out to try not to get the boots wet, and to always wipe your boots dry afterwards. How necessary is this? Whats the best waterproof application that I can apply? I live in a rather rainy city.   Thanks
^Thanks for posting that. The price of the shoes show $510, but when I checked out, it showed $425, I applied a 30% discount, so the grand total with duty fees is $400.   Not too shabby. :)
Hows the quality of their wool/wool blend knitwear/sweaters?   I really like the 'Shawl' sweater (made in Canada) and the 'Marled' sweater (made in China) - One thing that is deterring me from buying it is the fact that its Dry Clean Only.
I went to try on the 1000 mile's and Red Wing Beckman's today. From my initial impressions, the 1000 mile's looks a lot better in person than in pictures, and aesthetically looks better than the Beckman in my opinion. The Beckman were noticeably heavy and I thought the laces were of poor quality because even though its waxed, it was rather difficult to lace up the shoe.

    What do you guys think of this belt?   3cm width, it's a bit small for jeans I think.
After much searching on this thread, I believe the general census is for vintage labels (unsanforized), is to go TTS or TTS-1.   I measured my best fitting jeans: 32" waist, and 11" thigh. What size should I go for?
Thanks for the reply.   I think i'll bite the bullet and buy it at retail. I'm hoping they have the 0201 Vintage label (unsanforized)   Not sure about sizing, but when trying on the jeans -what should it feel like?   Should it feel tight around the waist and thigh so that it will stretch? or should it be relaxed and comfortable? Should it be so tight that I can't button the top button?
Is the Naked & Famous x Momotaro collaboration on par with Momotaro's quality?   At $265, if they are on par with quality, its a decent deal -since Momotaro's start at ~$300
