Remember to bring suede shoes, Pat!

I don't wear suede shoes. I plan on bringing two pairs, my leather Buttero sneakers (that I bought solely for going to Cambodia) and my cheapo beater rain shoes (Church for Cole Haan). It is so dusty and dirty out there I am not bringing anything nicer.

Got point.

 

I recall going there once awhile ago. Great place, but I was wearing sandals.

Thought you'd get a kick out of that. If you're collecting evidence for some future blackmail scheme (good luck with that...I don't have anything ) here's another one:

Not for the little guy: DW was just marking out the pattern there before he clicked my monkey loafers.

It's dusty as fuck there, and if you have any boat trip scheduled or plan to climb any of those temples, flat soled canvassed sneakers will be a good choice.

I'd go for some vintage combat boots though. But then again, over kill for me, because I was thinking of the beaches.

Never think it! I was grooming and making friends. Look at the "little guy's" face--pure bliss, I'd say.

Actually there was a park with about a dozen of these youngsters running free and about three of them took turns sitting on my lap.

Kindred spirits maybe...lol8[1].gif

I would think a hot stuffed leather would be better for waterproofing than a fatliquored leather, but it seems like their isn't a single leather that is both straight veg tanned AND hot stuffed other than cordovan, which as we know, as issues. It is always a combination tannage and hot stuffed. There must be some reason.

The only calf I've ever used that was waterproof on it's own is the Reverso veg tanned stuff from Lo Stivale near Pisa. We did a couple of models for the Japanese market where they used the grain side, which took a decent shine, although I'd hardly call it a dressy look.

This boot is the same calf using both the grain and flesh side:

Do you know any reverse wax calf supplier around? The genuine stuff, not the Horween Huntsman replica.

Agree. Also, the manufacturer must take a lot more time in lasting(my assumption) as you don't have seams to bend around the waist and vamp.  Alfred Sargent Milton in 99 last.

It's horrible, thinking of the kind of work shoemakers must go through to make a pair of wholecut, yet they look so simple and elegant.
