+1

If these are the golden brown CXL then you just have to live with the creasing.

This is exactly how my my Long Branches looked after about 2 wears. It's perfectly normal, IMHO and seems to be pretty par for the course with CXL. Wear them and enjoy them.

If I recall correctly, about 15% during rda sale.
On that note, just got a confirmation of my shell strands just shipped out.

I ran across this boot yesterday and thought that an AE Portland MTO in Brown Grain would look pretty incredible:

I know folks batted around a suede Portland MTO makeup a little while back; given the number of Brown Grain Eagle County takers, an NST in brown grain like this should be able to find twelve folks. Stock Portland has fewer eyelets (plus 3 are speedhooks), no split reverse welt, etc. The 3 last of the Portland does not appear to be as much of an enigma as the 2 last of the EC. (Hoping @Watchidiot gets a look at this:stirpot:) ...Thoughts?
