...but when done correctly, they are tough to compete with.

I like the cigar tassels. May get them if the 13d NST lace up on Aberdeen fits OK. I think they look fantastic!

See Ya,

Thank you. I appreciate the recommendations, thoughts & the posted illustrations:

Glad I checked before applying any products to my boots.

Also of note: Natural CXL will always darken over time with wear and subsequent care. Expect this. Embrace it. Meltonian will speed up this process significantly and turn the boots quickly to a more golden tone, away from the grey/beige they start out. A good, clean, stiff brush is your best friend.

This is an evolution of my NatCXL Indys using only Meltonian, before springing for Saphir at the advice of board-knowledge.

Thanks for the complements Uncle. I aspire to have a collection that rivals yours...some day. I think I've got a good start for only being in the game 4 months.

See Ya,

Well if you wear snuff with black pants they are bound to look odd.

Same here. Whenever I see chukka I think of Will Ferrell in that Elf movie. But, I also think there's a time and a place for chukkas. Maybe I'll change my mind someday. I used to dislike NST's but now I like them

While I don't care for David Beckham, I think this particular ensemble is pretty cool.  I believe his pants are navy, which looks perfectly fine with more navy, and snuff suede chukkas.

Haven't posted any pics lately, so I wanted to show some J. Crew x Alden Ravello love.

As much as I love this makeup, yesterday I wore my Leffot 975s with the antique trim, and I'd have to rate those a bit above these.

The Alden natural CXL tassels were tempting but I just bought a couple Gatsby shirts and a shoe brush.

Cool photo from Leffot's tumblr... The longwing in snuff suede looks very good... I highly recommend at least one non-cordovan longwing for casual wear (chromexcel or suede)

That's what I did.

I second the snuff suede chukka

I think tan works better for the PTB or the loafer as suggested by hkpm

I wish the suede PTBs on NeedSupply were tan and not snuff...I'd have an order in by now!

Frans Boone has a snuff suede parajumper boot and a marble suede Indy boot up online... A lot of sizes are available in the marble suede (I would have considered it if 9.5E was available).
