I just throw them in the front-load washer on cold with Woolite Dark and hang dry. I don't notice any fading from it, but it isn't like I wash my jeans every week. I wash them if they're dirty, and sometimes I'll give an initial wash to remove the starch. I do have several pairs that have been worn a few times but never washed yet.
I'm not real happy hearing about this buy-out. I can't picture it being a good thing once the bean counters get involved.
I would say you're stuck with it. I've had several waxed jackets over the years and they seem to hold any stains once they get them due to the wax.

Cool thread! I never hear much about Drew's. I hope someone has something from Drew's and can post about them.
Guys definitely think too much about all of this. If you don't want an exposed heel counter, you want the SD, if you want the exposed heel counter, you want any of the other White's boots.The BH is the SJ on the SD last.For a given size, the look and top profile of the boot is more affected by close trim versus standard trim.
