My new RRL wallet.  I darkened the leather with some olive oil which I use for belts as well.  It came with a redish burgundy color.  It now has a much darker brown

 

Flash & no flash

Olive oil? Isn't that going to get rancid and stenchy?

not if you keep it under 375 degrees

I believe it will rot eventually.

 

You should have tried beeswax first.

I'v heard about the rot thing but its been 2.5 years with about 4 apps on the belt i wear and its fine.  I like the color i get from it more than anything iv used.  I think i read that on the Iron Heart forum but the guy said it was his cutting board that got the smell & rot

Leather will rot if you add too much of any oil. It has to still be dry enough to breathe. Olive oil is an old saddlery trick. It's the animal based oil that can go rancid.

Can anyone confirm?

Also hoping someone can confirm my earlier question if the Thompson Work Chino has visible selvedge outseam?

Thanks,
Brett.


Happened to see the Thompson Work Chinos in the store, and they do have a visible selvedge outseam. I forget if it's stitched over (think Deadstock Road Chino) or laid flat, as in regular jeans. I'll let you know next time I head to the store.

Anyone know what sizing is like on the Washington boots? I wear an 11.5 or 12 in most sneakers and have pretty wide feet
