I can't make promises for them but just call. They are easy to reach and deal with.

To the poster who asked about Alden belts a few pages before.

 

I was in Alden SF 2 months back.

Saw a bunch of belts in the store.

You might wanna give them a call.

 

Question:

 

When you guys say you guys brush alot after the cleaning and conditioning.

How much is alot?

5 mins non stop brushing?

10 mins non stop brushing?

30mins non stop brushing?

Has anyone ever ordered from them? Experiences?

Thanks.

The edge treatments on the Bureau Belfast Alden's are quite nice. I wonder if B Nelson could do the same with my stock 990's?

Ok, Here is my shot. Pic from 3/17/13 St. Patrick's Day. And an additional pic of me and my youngest...........sporting her favorite new saddles.

 

Contrary to how they may look, I neither baby nor abuse my aldens. Most get regular wipedowns and application of reno every month or two depending on how much wear they get. My cigar indys are my most casual alden and usually get the nod for a weekend trip to the park with the kids or a romp in the woods with the dog.

Hi Folks,

 

First of all, thanks for the earlier post tipping me off on the plaza indys at Frans B. I'm thinking about it heavily now and will follow up with a couple of questions shortly.

 

More pressing at the moment is a mini shoe emergency I'm hoping one of you gents can assist with. I was busy multitasking this morning and trying to get my son to school on time when I noticed a couple of drops of something on my alpine grain wt boot. I'm not sure exactly what it was. My best guess is toothpaste (with peroxide), as I was brushing my teeth and packing lunch at the same time. The other nominees are dish soap or the veggie smoothie I made with the vitamix this morning.

 

 

 

 

I've tried taking a damp cloth and much brushing with the horsehair brush several times. However, these two stubborn circular stains remain just in front of the foremost right eyelet. Any suggestions on what I can do to remove or cover this stain? I haven't yet placed my order with the Hanger Project folks. I was thinking I could take my cheap Kiwi saddle soap to the vamp, but I'm concerned about darkening or ruining things further. Is my only solution to go with Saphir Renovateur or Renomat?

 

Sure hope I haven't made a $500 mistake by multitasking this morning. So much for staying in the present moment.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

d

The Bureau are great.
They ship pretty quickly via 2nd or 3rd day fedex international.
Never had to pay duty or brokerage on anything from them.

Snuff suede unlined PTB


+1, only I would go with camel or tan suede unlined PTBs.  Snuff seems to me to be more of a fall color as it is darker, but both work.

You say it just happened this morning? I would give it some time. It could just be water drops from the bathroom or something from the kitchen. I have a couple pair of Alpine grain shoes (and used to have the same boots you are wearing) and get those spots on them from time to time and they always go away after a while - sometimes that may take an hour or longer. I think it's just the nature of that type of leather. I would just give it some time before I would recommend putting any product on it.
