Sorry for spewing inaccuracies, guys. I guess it's only my boots. I know my shell LWB tongues are lined. I think that's it, though.

I have credit at Leffot. Trying to decide between these two. Or maybe waiting for a better offering down the road. At the moment I'm leaning towards the natty CXL chukka (since the Cigar chukkas are tight on me and aren't going to work). Which would you go with?

I know it's no help, but that is a decision really only you can make. Which do you like more?

I really dig these or those chamois cap toes, but that's just me...and i could be wrong.

Cigar

just kidding, I know you want them to fit perfectly.  While Tifosi is exactly correct, I would go with the natty chrmxl because if they are a bit snug to start (like the Cigar), they well stretch some and mold to the shape of your foot.  Good luck...

Pulled another seldom used grail out of the closet and dust bags.  Really tempted to go with the boot version in color 8!  [Edit:  Ugh!  No longer in stock]

Those are amazing. Are they from the TSM fire sale? Still kicking myself for only picking up whiskey PTBs then.

Strongly leaning towards those Natty CXL chukkas. Waiting for them to send me the email that my account has been credited so I can call back and order them.

Those are the exact shoes I've been wanting if I were to go Ravello. Please let me know ASAP if you ever hear of this make up again.

post #99072 of 122416

Hello all, I'm looking for some emergency cleaning advice. These are CXL Indys and I have this horrible spot/smudge/stain that I have been unable to remove via my normal cleaning. 

 

I have no idea what caused the stain. It's near black, has a tacky feeling to the touch and has foiled all my cleaning attempts. This is my third pair of Alden CXL boots and I have used the same method for keeping them all looking new until now: horsehair brushing a couple times a week, Allen Edmonds cleaner/conditioner once every two or three months and then a final light layer of either Saphire Reno or Alden Paste wax with some vigorous brushing. After applying this method, I think I actually smeared and spread the stain out!

 

Any ideas?

I don't really consider myself a two eyelet chukka guy, though I do like those CXLs.  No surprise though that I vastly prefer the suede NST chukka.  The six eyelet chukka makeup is nice, that color of suede is great, and I am a fan of the crepe on certain casual makeups, especially suede and chamois.
