Same here - I ordered 4 pair. Nearly threw a jar of Obenauf's on the ticket as well... but I doubt I'll finish what I have on hand this winter
Heads up - White's has Free Shipping this week on website orders. Great time to stock up on extra laces, which normally cost more to ship than purchase....
Yeah I'm in a similar situation over here in Chicago - cobblers in every neighborhood, but I've bad experiences in the past with 2 I've tried
All good to know, thanks!
Same boots from post #7445 after a quick cleaning with saddle soap- (6" Swing Last, all Distressed Smooth, cap toe, no celastic, standard trim, Cuban heel, 430 sole)
I have a pair of 430-soled Bounty Hunters custom ordered via Kyle at Baker's, about a year old. I wear them every day for work; they see a bit of abuse - nicks & scratches from crates & pallets - but I keep them clean & Obenauf'ed as needed.

Excellent thread idea! Subscribed immediately. I've been window shopping Aero jackets for a couple of years now, and it will soon be time to pull the trigger. Remarkably few fit pictures out there though - at least of the models in which I'm interested. Not looking for a bike jacket, need something a bit longer. Ideal coat would be brown or perhaps cordovan Front Quarter Horsehide, something like the front of a Lost Worlds Bedford (or single-breasted Aero Barnstormer)...
