Boots are only a week old and looked great with just a good brushing (pics posted above earlier today). I applied a coat of Renovateur to the entire upper, brushed, then applied a few extremely thin coats of Saphir Cordovan wax, followed by more brushing. I finished by buffing. The pictures are a bit deceiving but there is no wax at all past the cap. The wax actually stops just shy of the brogued section.

Now these look fabulous.

 

Great shine.

 

 

Man I sure wish I had mine now.

 

Still have to wait a couple of more weeks.

Your right, in fact the longer the wait the greater it feels to actually get the very thing you have waitedso long for.

It seems to me that Alden's "brown" cxl -- like on the 403s -- has a lot more red in it than the "brown" cxl from other makers, no?

Nope. My brown Wolverine 1000 mile boots is also very reddish under strong sunlight. They are all CXL from Horween.
