    Breaking in my new dark brown rough-out suede Conistons purchased from 92 Jermyn St. Shipping took less than a week to California.

    Any rough-out suede care tips? Spray with Nano protector or just leave alone?

    I’ve never done anything to my rough out. Seems pretty impervious.

    Not at all. In some respects it’s a quality marker in that the leather doesn’t require metal reinforcement. FWIW G&G AND Vass also don’t feature metal eyelet reinforcement.

    Galway country grain, this boot is way more beautiful than it should be.

    Does anybody know any retailers who still have Galway's in stock?

    I also didn't know that that was their term for corrected grain.

    Either way, I also got my pair not too long ago, and hope to bust them out in the coming days.

    I have no good answer to this. It usually goes like this: I take out the boots, and if it’s wet outside I ask myself when I last sprayed them with Invulner/Nano protector. If I can’t remember the answer I give them a round of protection.

    I had a look on bodiley's, they only had one size left and unfortunately it wasn't mine. Reads were cheaper than linnegatan and I also got free postage and some saphir shoe cream thrown in. Not too bad considering I was happy just to find a pair in my size.

    Awesome, alls well that ends well.
    Enjoy them, they are absolutely stunning boots. I just looked at them for more than a day when I initially got them.

    Today in an absolute down pour, they performed perfectly. No water leakage into them at all, after having to cross a few sections with standing water of 2 to 3 inches.

    What steps do you take to care for the leather after getting them that wet? Am looking to buy a boot for the NY winter (Coniston, AS Cambridge, or may spring for the Snowdon) and was wondering how much work was involved, including dealing with the salt. Hoping perhaps some newspaper and a brisk brushing is enough...
