    any retailer have a #8 captoe boot with antique edges? (besides the now long sold out Tres Bien model) The combination of #8 and antique edge is really stunning imo

    Excellent loafers uncle. Wanted to visit PS to see if the manager there could help ID my loafers but could not make it down. I might actually see if Nick V. can ask since I think he is acquainted with the PS manager.

    Trying to decide on a #8 boot... NST, wingtip, or cap toe (TB last is too casual so it is out of the running). Leaning on the NST boot...

    Sorry for a bit of a necro-post...

    But I can imagine trying to sell this to my wife, who already just rolls her eyes when the boxes arrive...

    "Um, yea sure". flips through yellow pages for a divorce attorney

    No interest in a NY get together? I could see if Mike and the Ep gang would be down. I have two weeks before work starts again though, so I'm a little nuts at the mo, but I'd love to try.

    I was just in San Francisco and stopped by the Alden SF store. Two things. First of all, I guess, I'm wearing the the wrong size 986 LHS. Thanks, Robert for the new Color 8 10D's. I always felt that the upper portion was a little tight over the top of my foot. I guess I'll be eBaying my 9.5D Brooks Brothers unlined Color 8's in the near future. I'm never going to get the hang of that Van last!

    But my real question is this. I've got a pair of the Kudu Ultimate Indy's from Leather Soul (Thanks, guys. Awesome boot!) and while mine are softer and more broken in, they definitely have a bit of that dust magnet quality to them. But the pair of Kuku boots that I saw in the Alden store had more of a waxy feel to them.

    I've still never managed to find a good way to maintain the Kudu's. I once tried Montana Pitch Blend, but then leather is so oily,. that the Pitch Blend just built up on the surface, and I eventually had to wipe every bit of it off (which took awhile).

    Does anyone have any advice on how to maintain this kind of leather. It's be really great to get to lose a little of that dust catching ability!

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    That's not the best comparison...
