I'm really curious about the grant lasted wingtip. I thought about the J Gilbert one but want all eyelets and double leather. The J gilbert is going to look awesome with the antique edge.

I went ahead and grabbed the Edmund boot too to compare next to JCrew's 405. Pretty unique in the world of Indys, the grain fits it well IMO. I instantly loved that top-down shot...

I keep coming back to thinking about letting my Leffot Dovers go, someone talk me out of it or into it haha. I might want to make room for a different Dover... :hide:

PSA - I passed on a pair of AoM captoe boots in cigar shell on Barrie last earlier today, size 8.5D. That pair may still be available, so run, don't walk! Good luck!

 

Additional free associational thought: was quickly perusing the thread earlier and saw the wishes for either the tobacco chamois or natural cxl makeup (for an nst i believe?). If you don't find the makeup currently, try to see if you can get multiple thread members to gear up for it, as certain retailers might create a preorder if they think it will be a good model. Curtis at AoM has mentioned in the past that, with the exception of rare shell orders, this is a good way to go if you aren't finding your makeup of choice. Usually a retailer wants to have 10-12 guys sign on so they know they can at least create a small batch. Shouldn't be a problem to get the hides for a natty cxl or tobacco chammy model. Curious to see what you guys put together!

Venetian shoe cream throws a mean shine on natty CXL. iPhone camera sucks. Sorry for no pics. Use rubber gloves with the cream though. Unless you like solvents.

A little help. I just opened up for the first time my Alden LWB, Barrie last, Tobacco Chamois, Commando Soles and they have a bit of "bloom"?

 

What is the best way to deal with this? Remove with a cloth, rub in with hands or ?

i've treated bloom on shell before by rubbing with a t-shirt, didn't know chamois bloomed as well.
