Leather Arts & Crafts MOTO (Aoyama--Tokyo, Japan) Appreciation Thread - Page 12
For wallets, I would definitely check out the CXL wallets at MOTOR. They have some beautiful silver work on them. Ask the owner or sales guy if you can see the aged one. Its stunning. But, that's not to say that Moto's wallets are inferior. My wife has one and it is well worth the price!
Just some quick hotel shots of my 'travel collection' — including my MOTO long chukkas in black CXL. Which are wonderful, by the way!
Clockwise, from eleven o'clock: Alden for Epaulet Officer Indy, brown CXL; J. Gilbert #8 wingtip boot, Plaza last; Alden SF ravello PTB; MOTO Long Chukka, black CXL.

Thanks! I've never used polish on the CXL, just Venetian Shoe Cream and buffing with a horsehair brush and a soft cloth. The stitching on the Indy boots was already dark — the Epaulet Officer Indys came that way. It's a great make up; they should do it again. I also have a pair of Epaulet Black & Tan Indy boots, which is also a great make up with non-contrast stitching.
