It's not all that noticeable and I could probably live with it, but I'm not sure if whatever they did to cover up that apparent split in the leather will end up rubbing off later and expose it. Thoughts?

Put them on with whatever pants you expect to wear, sit in a chair, and then cross your legs.  If the blemish is on the upper side with crossed legs, then it may be more noticeable to others.

Ruffle away.

Suggest a professional fit by a department manager at AE or Nordstroms in various lasts and styles.

Outstanding.  The slight contrast in white works better, in my opinion, as you have displayed.

 

And maybe a blue cashmere sweater over a nice dress shit?

Alrighty . . .

 

I see no incongruity between calf and cotton. However, I find this leg opening to be much too narrow. Don't get me wrong, I like a strong taper as much as the next guy, but it has to be proportional to your body type AND shoe size. Your feet look massive here even though they likely aren't. YMMV.

 

Also, navy + walnut is great imo.

What's the best way to give unworn AE shell shoes a glow?

Saphir Reno + AE Crodovan cream

or

Saphir Reno + Saphir Neutral cordovan cream?

You could skip the Reno and go straight for the cordovan cream. I like it much better than Reno for shell. YMMV.

I don't understand this fear.  I have to think high quality leather can hold up to a bit of dust. Sure, if you leave your shoes unworn for months, they will dull and lose a bit of shine, but this is quickly remedied with a bit of polish and brushing.

I agree.

I think polish will/does clog punch holes more than dust.

 

If all else fails, there are shoe bags.

I personally like this look. I don't have any pants this narrow myself, but I think it looks good on certain guys.

I prefer to just give them a good brushing and while down, alike Tif, cream is best for nourishing and shine...
