Thanks to all that responded. As for slim dark denim Zara, Uniqlo Selvage, Unbranded Selvage, Levis 511/513, Gap Selvage, even HM are options. You can also find on sale Nudies or N&F if you look hard enough.
Currently my DBs look similar to this^
On this pair, I notice a lighter color around the eyelets and just above the toe compared to the toe and ankle area.
While the third pair has been treated with Obenauf's, it again looks noticeably lighter compared to the first.
Just a quick question. Two actually. I've seen Clarks Beeswax DBs lighten up over time to a great brown/tan color. Its a big part of why I bought them yet they don't seem to be lightening up. Had them since August '13. Any way to speed up the lightening process?
Also where would one get their DBs resoled? Vibram? Desert Trooper style sole? Thanks.
