Tellason Ladbroke Grove 12.5 oz.
4 months, no washes.
Best denim I've ever owned, although I'm relatively new to the raw denim game.
Could anyone give me a little advise on darkening natural CXL leather, please? I have a pair of Natural CXL Alden Chukkas on order, i.e. the exact light, reddish-brown hue shown in the first pic.
My question is - how do I make them look like the LSH Alden CXL Chukka?
I understand Natural CXL will darken over time, but I guess not enough to match the dark brown of the LSH version.
Is there a way to get the same finish as the Leathersoul CXL Chukkas have?
I've read about using Allen Edmonds Aqua Care Brown shoe cream, but I'm a bit wary of ruining them. Would that give me the desired colour / hue? Any other recommendations?
Thank you for your help!
you are right, in theory because dark brown cxl chukkas are not available to buy until end of 2013 when LS gets their next delivery in. Or are they?
I think I'll try dark brown polish and settle with the result.
Maybe try using Obenaufs HDLP or Sno Seal?
Some saphir renovateur or venetian shoe cream, in addition to vigorous brushing, can help with the spots, but don't overdo it
