Hmm, is the CXL really so much two-tone? How much wear have you got on it?
And I'm with you on the LWB tear. Have a CXL and a cigar, plus a navy suede on pre-order, also considering ravello some time in the future (alas, this will be with the new prices). And maybe I'll try to grab a snuff suede LWB next time J.Crew leaves it on sale, if it's available when that happens.
This is probably not too much compared to other gentlemen in this thread, but these are all alden shoes I got (the only boot in my possession being a CXL indy). Might look for a PTB in ravello instead for my birthday next year though.
And btw, a novice question: does the paste wax I got with my cigar LWB have any place in the mac method? Is this the wax I should use each ~15 wearings?
