    Does anyone here know if Lock Hatters has any problems? Their homepage is unavailable and e-mails haven't been answered.

    Bump!

    I have a pair of Bostonian Classic long wing in black with leather sole from about 10 years ago in 8+/10 condition.

    Does anyone know who made them? I couldn't find any writing inside the shoes that indicate country of origin.

    HELP

    I wiped down my boots with a damp cloth, then applied Allen Edmonds Conditioner/Cleaner to my Clarks Beeswax boots, then sprayed their Waterproofer on it. Now there is SEVERE discoloration of the leather. It is no longer dark brown, but light tan/yellow.

    Was there too much water that it stained it? Or is from the products?

    Most shoe care products out there are for a specific type of leather. Are your boots made using smooth calf leather?

    If I take a 9G in Crockett & Jones 9 E/9 3E in Allen Edmonds, will a 9 E in Alden fit my foot?

    I've owned several pairs and all of mine have been. I think you are right.

    You can't go too wrong with blue or white shirt and a blue or more likely grey jacket/suit. I think of this as more of a summer tie, but I guess you would wear it any time.

    I love theses Kilgour silhouettes:

    http://www.kilgour.com/

    Especially the blue check third after the morning coat.

    What do you think?

    More importantly what would you call the silhouette?

    I would attempt to classify it un eloquently as 'British military...'
