    Don’t think the XS will fit as the Nashville seems to fit tight around the collar and chest, but then puffs out lower down. Good thing about shirts is that they generally a lot easier to tailor so definitely bigger size and tailor down I think! Thanks.

    Treated myself with some 2015 SLP Waxed D02s in size 28.
    How do you like the fit and the overall look of the waxed denim?

    I found the best solution is washing your jeans inside out and spray your shoes with suede protector when it is new. After every wear, use the suede eraser and lightly rub the colors out if there are any. Or wear very light wash jeans.

    Unfortunately, if the the color already bleeded on, nothing you can do about. Just enjoy it. You won't notice it since you jeans will cover it up.

    Good advice. Plus get your self a suede brush.

    Additional advice: Wear the fuk out of your jeans and boots and don’t worry about it :)

    I can comment on this. I have the papaya and actually bought and return the one from Mr. Porter. They are the same color. It is actually say papaya color on box. One thing of the papaya is that it is light brown new but as you wear then they get darker really quick. Just make sure you stay away from water. The leather is very sensitive to water spot but it will blend in as it get darker. The patina process is very neat. Here is the before and after. I wore these around about 10 times and it darken about 2 shades. Screenshot_20190209-201003_Instagram.jpg 20190209_200850.jpg

    I'd tuck in the white tee underneath and shorten both the sleeves and hem a tiny bit- my ideal fit is for the sleeve to hit around my wrist bone or slightly lower, and for the hem to hit around mid zipper.

    don't worry about it, I think the denim stains add a ton of character to your boots. Shows you really wear em, and like you said, they aren't noticeable on foot. There's not too much you can do to prevent it from happening either, unless you go for a wider hem where the denim doesn't regularly rub against the boots.

    Thanks for the advice guys, really appreciate it :)

    On a side note, I recently ordered a pair of Cognac Santiags from Grailed. Anyone got any pictures of these on feet? I've found a few online/on instagram, but seems pretty scarce.
