I did the first time multiple times he assured me in around 8 weeks I would get the same configuration but a size up.

My custom Whites finally showed up after a LONG 8 weeks.  Couldn't be happier with them and with Kyle from Bakers Shoes. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Those look awesome! Enjoy!

Are those Natural CXL? I thought White's just started taking orders?

Yup, you got it. Wish they were natty cxl. Oh well, maybe next pair...

reinforces my thinking that my next pair of White's should be in distressed smooth...it always looks damn good.

Yes, Distressed Smooth also is the thoughest leather White's provides.
Very hard leather, it is. Will need some breaking in.

What makes it the hardest leather?  Just a different cut of cowhide or is it from a different tanning process?

It's much drier than the other Smooth Leathers White's provides. And base on my own experience, it is the hardest one.
I don't know much about the tanning process though. satisfied.gif

Can you share the specs? Distressed smooth looks AWESOME!

 

They really looks sharp.

Interesting.  I put a light coat of Obenaufs LP on them last night as they definitely felt dry.
