+1. They're work style boots. They look better with some wear on them. Just cream/polish/oil them up from time to time and they'll end up looking fine. Babying boots is silly (and counterproductive).
I should probably have posted this when India is awake.
I'm looking for a tailor in Mumbai. I married a woman whose parents live there, so I'll be making regular visits for the foreseeable future and would like to find someone to make me some suits/shirts/pants. My in laws live on the IIT campus, so they're toward the north of the city. If I could find good near there it would be ideal, but it is not an absolute requirement. I read this thread. It mainly discusses Kachin's, which seems to be a reasonable option. The...

While the Bell and Ross isn't really my cup of tea either and I rather like Grand Seikos, it seems bad form to come in, give some harsh criticism then answer a question about your watches with one that you don't even own. If you were named for an animated character, I'm not sure it's something your namesake would do.
