Thanks... I don't order much from abroad other than maybe ebay/paypal so it didn't occur to me that one of my CCs may have an extra fee, if I buy there again I'll check the terms on my other cards.  The UPS fee was charged COD so fear I may have given up my standing on any dispute by paying on receipt of the box... but I'll give it a whirl. Via communication with the seller this evening that theory on the tongue stitching was confirmed.  I've never seen this before, across...
Strikes and spares today in the Alden game friends.   Picked up these Alden for Unionmade Stanyan loden calf boots on the 'bay, figuring the dark color and commando soles would be perfect for the early winter gripping us here in the midwest.  The seller mentioned that a plastic heel tap had been added, but failed to mention that the tongues had been stitched to the sides (second pic).  WTF? I'm sure a cobbler can take the stitches out pretty easily and the holes in the...
@Epaulet - Hi Mike, what color polish do you recommend for the oxblood Brixtons?  Been wearing these quite a bit and have acquired a few scuffs.  Great boots!
Looks awesome!  Will this be sized up from your regular fit to wear as an overshirt?  Regular gusting fit is way too snug on me in shoulders/chest to layer over anything.
I got the same shirt in the light indigo last go-around.  With a cold wash, hang dry, mine did shrink a bit.  I didn't measure before/after or anything but it was noticeable when putting it on.  If you don't have any leeway on the 38 you might want to think about doing the 40 and then hot washing if you need to get it a bit smaller.  There seems to be some shrinkage left despite the initial pre-wash when it comes from TS.
Call me Jonah! If there's any way to get in on those please let me know.  Great print.
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...
How about the heavy natural belts? thanks
