If I did doubt you , the second pic would do little to convince me that it really was you who took the original pic, because the face is blocked out and I don't know what you look like anyway.  Or maybe you just inserted yourself in to the image.

 

Doesn't matter, either way, I believe you and it is not important.

 

In that case, let me apologize for misreading your post.

No need to apologize.  This sort of thing happens from time to time on internet forums.

 

Enjoy your weekend.

Beautiful PTBs. Rather dark for Whiskey, someone said these were recrafted. I have seen some posts back talking about Alden's liberal use of dark dyes on recrafts. Regardless, they do still look awesome!

I've searched for about 20 minutes trying to find a definitive step-by-step guide on cleaning Indy boots, but I'm either blind or I'm just not looking hard enough. Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

Which Indys? (Model # or material)

Wipe down with a wet/damp cloth to get all the surface gunk off.  Let them dry if you got them that wet during step 1.  Apply a little VSC, Reno, or whatever you prefer to use.  Brush with horsehair brush.

 

Applying product is not always necessary.  The horsehair brush usually gets good results alone.

 

I posted before/after shots of some CXL boat shoes that received this maintenance regime in the Rancourt thread last spring and summer.

I would love to see pictures sometime during this weekend. I'll try to post mine tomorrow.

This is my favorite pair. Even before I was an Alden fan, I loved the look of shortwing bluchers. This pair, being Ravello Shell, sealed the deal for me.

I will never part with these.



I'll also use this as my 'ravello week' entry satisfied.gif

^ the best deal I've ever seen on Abbyhorn shoehorns is at Brooks when they go on sale. I remember getting a ~16 incher for around $40.
