I would just start wearing them. The pull-up leather is meant to be worn hard. After a while (several wearings) you should probably polish with a cream (Meltonian or Saphire, for example).

Maybe I'll post fit pics later for opinions.
cross post from thrift store bragging thread... Today, a rare denim find: APC New Standards in size 30 that appear to have been soaked only once and worn none at all...for $12 and change. I take 30 when I'm in shape and a 31 when I'm not (right now I'm not) so I will probably wear these when I drop my winter fat, or (if I stay fat) I may try to trade them.

Question about Helmut Lang denim: Is some helmut lang made in Italy, some in USA? If so, is there a difference in quality? Thx
Quote: Originally Posted by IamCargo waxed lace + speed lock teeth are the murderer the teeth will split the laces into 2/2+ pieces easily Is there an explanation for why speed hooks are used on almost every Alden boot? There seems to be an awful lot of people, myself included, that would much prefer eyelets all the way up. But you rarely see them made that way (I can only think of a handful of exceptions: examples being leathersoul's...
Beautiful churches. Sorry, but those hartt's aren't shell cordovan.

I can't seem to find it at the moment (will keep checking) but it covers the usual suspects (coach, LV, etc.) and is quite informative. May want to look around before starting a new one.
