Sold. Thank you for looking.
You can just wear them as is as the boots are already oiled out of the factory. Obenauf LP is a leather protector than waterproofs your boots and nourishes the leather. Some prefer oiling it before, others after. Your preference, but no substantial difference.
Nope, Amber and Amber Harness should be the same thing. They're both under the model 8111. Probably just some categorization differences.  
  No. I received it as a gift. I'm not too sure where it was bought, but I doubt it was from Harry Rosen.
Does anyone have experiences with returns at Harry Rosen? I recently received a pair of Allen Edmonds Sanford as a gift in size 11 which was my usual size.

I don't have the receipt for a return anymore but I was wondering if it was possible to take a chance and buy a properly fitted shoe at Harry Rosen as they're the only retailer for AE shoes in the area, and use that receipt to return my other pair as a...

Yeah but the bison leather that the boot is made of is the softest boot I've ever worn out...

Does anyone know if its possible to fix a hole in the tongue of a pair of bison leather boots? I ordered a pair of Brooks Brothers Red Wing Beckman's earlier and it finally came in although with the issue of the dot sized hole in the corner of the tongue. I can't return it since it was a sale item and it was the last in size.
