Looks like a restock on the Walt pale grape herringbone trousers:
In this spirit, cross-posting these. They are stock 403s, conditioned but never polished, bought at Epaulet.
Dirty carpet -- apologies.
There's a natural, almost mottled coloration you can begin to see in the toe. (In reality, this antique look is present elsewhere around the boot as well, but it's very difficult to show with just a phone camera.)
This picture came out terribly, but after a long day of wear, my Ravello Brixtons also needed some shining. The Ravello Brixtons have also been treated with no polish, only conditioners. The side of the boot, which is a solid piece of Ravello shell cordovan, is beginning to reveal the horse's natural mottled coloration and grain variation -- all the while staying moisturized and shined.
We've done this already with a couple Alden makeups recently. I'd be willing to coordinate this as I did with the last two. Mike, are you game? If we can get our design finalized by the end of the year, we could have a new shoe or boot in hand by the fall.
