    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Thank you.
    Nor do I remember a 6 eyelet bal. Would like to know origin of El Argentino's find. Good spot by Tom!

    I tried to look up the listing, but I guess they don't permanently save them after more than a month or so.

    I have a question about wearing calfskin Indy boots in a place where it rains a lot - should I be using some sort of leather protector? Any advice from people living in wet places (UK) would be much appreciated

    This is no doubt the best I've used:
    http://www.homedepot.com/buy/applia...g-and-apparel-protector-spray-9-oz-10623.html
    Click on video for a demo.
    It's safe easy to use and won't leave a greasy film. So, it's good for dress-wear.

    I don't think these products (Montana, Obenauf) are available to the UK unfortunately.

    I use Obenauf's LP on all my leather shoes - keeps them waterproof and conditions the leather very nicely. I'm sure you can find lots of suppliers on ebay that are willing to ship to you.

    BTW I'm from Vancouver where rain is unfortunately the norm.

    Bah, why do I have such an issue with cordovan penny loafers? Alden or RL, I just can't fit into them without pain somewhere. Both companies' tassel loafers fit me fine...
