To give you some perspective, neither gentlemen checked the position of the...
Alden Shop SF has (or may even currently have) them.

In this case, I imagine the boots are still perfectly wearable, but I don't see how applying Topys should have resulted in this. It's not the same as honest wear, no more so than if they'd come back with a water stain on them. Sure, it might happen at some point, but it...

Not for nothing, but the $1600 price point = GF by Greenfield (whose core business is full canvas suits...
