I prefer the Innsbrook without question.  For an all-purpose, weather-beater on commando, I'll take the chrmxl with the eyelets.  I have that same brown calf LWB with double leather soles.  It's a nice shoe that I have worn a great deal in its lifetime (4 years).  But I reach for the Innsbrook MUCH more frequently now

Also, do you have pics of the brown calf LWB?

Just use any good brown polish. Unless there's an issue that I'm not aware of?

Public service announcement. I just went to the shoe mart. They have ravello wingtip boots in Stock in 9e. One pair only. They are factory seconds.

No major issues! Just not sure what people use to polish their alpine grain leather...

I just called and asked if they can look for me, but I was told by the rep that I need a model number. I asked if there was anyway she can look it up without the model number, or if anyone there knew the model number, and she said that no one would know. The rep sent me the 9E list and the boots were not there :/ Does anyone happen to know the model number?

 

Edit: I just performed a google search and found the model number. The same rep just told me that this is unavailable, and she doesn't even think a 9E was ever even made....

This was straight from the salesman George. Call and ask to speak to him.

So I used Alden Fine Boot Cream (Neutral) and it got rid of the scuffs on my citi shoes in brown apline grain. I'll see tonight how it protects against snow and slush...

Always call the Norwalk B&M store vs the Milford phone number. It typically is best to ask for Joe or Ed.

I was on the standby list for #8 tankers from NY. I got the call and they arrived today. Very pleased.

Hey Gents, here's a couple of photos of my winterized saddles from Frans Boone:





Barrie last, reverse chamois & suede, brass eyelets, crepe sole

@CEE88 Those saddles on my list for sure for next winter.

Great saddles!

A personal vent, I just, for the life of me cannot purchase a crepe sole shoe.

I know I need to get over it but the aesthetic is just off for me.
