Outstanding makeup Saz. This boot keeps growing on me. Looks so comfortable ...
Just to follow up, Alden agreed to recraft if I brought back to AoM. I didn't get out completely unscathed though, picked this up-
Should go nicely with these I got from UM
That's a nice belt. I was thinking about picking up a tan suede belt soon - how much do Alden's suede belts run?
With tax $152 - although they complimented my AE shell belt which was only like $50 more, probably a better deal.
Yeah - the only things I buy from AE anymore are belts.
Nice! Where'd you score those stylin' laces?
Thanks. Indeed they are.
slight modification - I had the hooks replaced to all eyelets (plaza)
I was gonna go with these too, but the forecast changed from inclement to just cloudy.
Anybody have care recommendations for reverse chamois? I tired to search the old
Forum and could t find the care tips that ni had seen previously
This is word-for-word from a retailer who won't be named. The leather is very tough and after many wears I have yet to do more than brush my boots a few times with a suede brush - though it didn't necessarily need it:
"They don't need a lot of maintenance or oiling since it is such an oily leather already. Brush out any dirt or particulate with a stiff bristled suede brush and every now and then if they seem a bit dry you can use something like Neatsfoot oil or Obenauf's Leather Oil. Apply it using a cloth or dauber brush and then brush them out with a stiff nylon bristled suede brush. You can use the same oils on the smooth chamois. It is easier to apply and just use a normal horsehair shoe brush for the smooth finish instead of using the suede brush."
Could anyone with a 975 longwing on a Barrie E last size 10 please post the length and width of the shoe? I would be very grateful, thanks.

Still one of my favorites. I think some people are put off by them, but they just don't realize how well these boots age. The leather and welt change color over time and develop a great patina.
Patina ain't just for shell.
