I find that a trip to the muddy dog park is a great way to get some paw scratches and patina.

I've decided that I am going to try and beat the sh!t out of these Tankers this year. My plan is to wear them everyday that I do not need to wear dress shoes.

I wholeheartedly recommend this (there's too much babying of shell in the world)
I've done exactly that with my tankers and love them even more.
the only thing i'd say you should look out for is that the stitching around the toe can start to fray if you are really rough on them.

I got mine from Context Clothing late last year.

Leffot was taking pre-orders for them as well but I am not sure how many sizes are left to choose from with them.

I emailed Context and they have an email list for when they next go into production. Leffot's also have a natural sole which I'm not a fan of (I know, you can change it yourself but I'd rather not).

None at all. No rub with any contact.

Sure thing.

If you have a suede brush you may want to try that first; it may work just fine. If not, then go with a tight-pattern new wire brush...lightly at first, just enough pressure to raise the nap.

U can have a cobbler take the buckle off, trim it to size, and put the buckle back on.  Alden SF has had it done to two belts for me.  Maybe you can call them and ask who they use.  They said the guy is just around the corner from them.
