    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-

    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.

    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.
