Neatsfoot oil, a recommendation by Nick Horween.

 

It's done a great job at keeping the leather buttery smooth. Only downside is that it slightly darkens the color.

 

Here's how they look with a little under 100 wearings, only care was shoe trees, brushing, and neatsfoot oil.

any suggestions on a belt (besides Aldens, not wanting to spend $255) on a belt to match color #8?

Brooks Brothers has them and they frequently go on sale. I'm wearing one right now that I have had for years.

You can contact Hellbrand Leatherworks and ask for a quote.  They'll make a custom belt to your specifications.  I just had them make me a CXL belt.  I'm very pleased with the quality and price.  It was about $45 less than the average and the price included delivery.

I like the BB one, but I'll never wear a gold buckle, silver color only for me. Seems they used to make one, but current collection is only gold buckle.


and as far a custom one, I'll look into it, but most of these custom guys are very, very 'casual' looking and aren't very sleek.

thanks for the feedback though!

I've learned to live with the creasing on these - my next cordovan chukkas will be in 9.5E instead of 10D though (this will minimize creasing)

Good call…they look great! As for the creases, roll with 'em that's cordovan. Great looking whiskey & great pants to boot.
