I'm not Legal Eagles, but own (among other leathers) a pair of BT SDs and absolutely love them. The colour is beautiful. It's not just some mid-brown/tan, but has a lot of ... um.. presence and depth. BT is drier / less waxy than the usual CXLs and feels silky smooth to the touch. However, it tends to absorb all kinds of liquid spilled onto it so will stain easily. It also scratches pretty easily, and the smooth surface and light colour make scratches more visible.Legal Eagles, I would be interested in your aversion to CXL on field boots. I get that they stretch a lot. Is there something besides that? I was thinking about the British Tan on a pair of SD's. Just curious about what I might be getting into.
Definitely not a workboot leather, but makes a really nice pair of SDs for all kinds of "nice" pursuits.
