i swear my size small blue steel chambray or whatever shrunk about .5" in length and overall just looks smaller now. could be in my head though. .but i definitely didnt think too much about the fit prior to the wash..
Thanks, these are soo comfortable as well! And yah, I wasnt sure as well since it was referred to as Waxed Brown Calf.. but when I spoke with one of the owners on the phone he referred it to as chromexcel. I did take a peak at the model number (29364f) and it was the same as other vendors selling them as CXL (and of course, the leather is VERY soft..)
I bought these and have only worn them about five times? They just don't seem to fit in with my rotation.
These are First Quality, bought from allaboutshoes on here.
I'll have some pics up tonight but they're in excellent shape. Stored in the dust bags with shoe trees and I've used Saphir Renovateur on it once.
Located in Vancouver, BC.
Preference goes to Canadian buyers however I can also accommodate shipping to the USA
$250 USD inclusive of shipping OBO
received my Black2s over the weekend.. wow, love these! just one more pair i'm waiting on (okayamas) and i'm done for awhile- i hope! got the rainbow neps, the american classic, the raw umber and now these..
good thing they mostly look the same to the common person.. otherwise the wife would flip out! :)
are you serious? all that hassle just so you can be the first one to crease it? like everyone said.. it's going to crease regardless... as long as the sole doesnt look like it's been worn i personally wouldnt sweat it.. but that's me.
