I'm truly humbled RK in the midst of my jealousy of your Alden wardrobe.

Question about the Mac Method....what type of cloth do you guys use for parts 1 (wipe down with a damp cloth) and 3 (buff with cloth)? Do you use the same type of cloth for both parts? Does it make a difference which type of cloth you use? Interested to hear thoughts and I wonder if there will be differing opinions.

Well that didn't take long...Decided to check out the stock of the black shell captoes on Grant from TSM. Sure enough they had them in stock. So...sure enough I bought them. Finally, some instant Alden gratification (relatively). Hopefully get them early next week.

 

OK. Now I'm really done till some exotics come up.

I, personally, use a cut up cotton Tshirt for both parts.  I have been thinking of moving to microfiber as I have heard at least a couple members use it with good results.

Just so you know, I've never participated in a preorder but have been contemplating the offerings at Leffot. I've heard that unlike others, they don't take preorders until they already have a commitment from Alden. This should virtually eliminate the years-long wait I've read about from other vendors. Their 20% down policy also is more than reasonable.

Ok, back to the quote. It was only after seeing how great your broken-in boots look that I was able to convince myself to take the plunge. I have a pair of #8 chukkas, but these will be my first shell boots. Seriously, your boots look great.

Man, I have got to get off of this site!! This stuff is addictive.

It's too late, my friend. Sorry.

For the damp cloth I use a regular terry washcloth which I wet and wring out well. For the buffing I use cotton birdseye weave diapers (easily obtained at Amazon, for instance). It probably doesn't matter what you use as long as it's soft, but I would say it's best for buffing to stay away from cloth which frays or shreds easily, especially if you have a lot of wingtips. I started out using a felt cloth, but it resulted in too much lint.
