    May sound like an odd question to the more experienced in raw denim here, but does the dye from raw jeans stain leather like on the Blucher Mocs?

    Yeah, it can, but it won't be by much. I haven't worn my Bean mocs since last weekend when I stepped in dog shit at a party in someone's dark yard.

    I just got a pair of the Blucher Mocs in brown and I would recommend them. I got them a week ago and they are the only shoes I've worn since.

    Im placing an order for the LL Bean Blucher Mocs in a day or two, and I was wondering if they run true to size. Or should I size up or down?

    I say true to size but I've heard others say size down 1/2. I went same as my Allen Edmonds size, which happens to be my Jack Purcells and Chucks size as well. I am one of the select few who does not size down at all on Chucks.

    Nothing is as good as it used to be, a sure sign that we are all aging and slowly becoming old farts.


    For $70 those LLBs are hard to beat. But please don't wear them with shorts. [​IMG]

    The Bean Blucher's aren't bad, but I'll stick with my Quoddy's. Just like the Bean Blucher's of old, IMO.

    They're ok but certainly teeter on the edge of being a douche. Stay away from wearing them with a sport coat, a bowtie and pink shorts and they're ok.

    Two questions: 1) How do you get Bean mocs to look like this: [​IMG] I have been wearing mine for almost a year with several applications of Obenauf's LP, and they are still really dull looking. No patina to speak of. and 2) How do you tie those curly knots?

    I wish I would've spent some more on Quoddy bluchers instead

    Yeah, I wish I would have gotten Quoddys before the ridiculous price increase. I can't justify spending $180 on blucher mocs.

    Thanks JOA.

    Anyone know how to get a nice patina? I hate to polish them, but a cordovan polish and maybe even a bit of blue might help them get that color. Any thoughts?
