post #94846 of 122416

Does anyone know if the reverse chamois will stain the same way suede does?  I'm always worried about raw denim stains ... my wife calls them first world problems and tells me they are just shoes!

I think reverse chamois is more durable and resistant to staining than suede.

I think denim stains look good. I just figure its part of my wardrobe and don't really stress it. Its funny because spilled and other things bother me much more than that

Gentlemen, which do you think is Alden's best whiskey model out of these three: PTB, SWB, or LWB?
post #94850 of 122416
I like ptb best. Plain and simple. Most shine and luster.

Ptb or lwb. SWB is not the best choice for this color imo

If shoes/boots are being worn with raw denim, they're presumably on the casual side of the spectrum, in which case I embrace the indigo stains.  I agree with ryden, that spots, spills and "unnatural" marks bother me slightly.  On my less casual boots, like the snuff suede WT Plaza boots, I am more careful with indigo as I don't want indigo stains on those.  But reverse chamois will look better with some wear on it, imo.

Yeah, I embrace denim stains as a species of patina.

Would love a pair. I'll email them and get in line behind Sazon for that size.

LWB

Does your SWB mean shortwing blucher (not offered), or shortwing Balmoral (offered on Tremont).

These reverse chamois Alden (from Winn Perry) have only been worn with denim. As you can see, there is some indigo staining where the hem of my jeans rubbed against the boots, but it's only visible in full sunlight and at eye level. On my feet, it's not noticeable at all.

sounds like i'll have to go with my usual plan - keep them clean as long as i can so they fit the varying nature of my wardrobe - than "downgrade them" to casual only wear when those stains start to really set in!
