Happy to help.  I am by no means a leather expert, but I went with light coat of a neutral carnauba wax product as I wanted to put a protective coat on top but not do much to change the color.  So I'd go waxier vs oilier as far as treatment.  I noticed it darkened very slightly with the application.  We'll see how it works out but my thinking is any indigo transfer on top of the wax layer should be able to be removed.  If I only wore it with denim I wouldn't mind so much,...
I picked one up about a month back, really like it.  The leather is really nice, fit and finish are first rate.  The indicated size was spot on as well.  Like Jay said above, the 7 holes and 3/4" spacing are the jam for sizing, you'll never end up on one of the last holes looking like you've gained/lost 20lbs after you bought it.  I gave mine a light coat of wax to help keep the indigo from rubbing in off my jeans.  Overall, really liking it and recommended, it's...

Having an issue with the speedhooks on my J Crew PCTs... some of them seem to be pulling loose.  These are about a year old, worn maybe two dozen times, I don't lace them all that tight.  Can any cobbler fix this, or does it have to go back to the factory?    
Worked at home this afternoon and had some time to give my 744 LTDs a little love via VSC and the ol' shoe brush.  
 In my experience the boat moc runs small by at least 1/2 size.  Depending on the leather yours may stretch in width, mine did after about 10 wears.  Not painful but not exactly comfortable.  Would size up in these for sure next time.
Let's say I'm a 40 in LBM 1911 with not too much room to spare. 40 in Doyle or move up to the 41? Love that chambray.
721 LTDs on a sunny afternoon.  Haven't worn much shell all winter but finally had some nice weather yesterday.
