    i've just used lexol on all mine. first i clean them with a damp rag, then use lexol cleaner, then the leather conditioner. give em a hit with a brush and they look great.

    i'm sure there are a million ways to skin that cat, lexol's been working great for me and i'm always interested to hear what other do.

    Thanks for the offer Tom but I think we're set for meals this trip.
    Going to Alan Wong's tomorrow and Halekulani brunch Sunday.

    Takuya treated me well. I could have spent all day looking at shoes but I think wifey was getting a bit bored. :)

    Thinking of getting the Alden Unlined Chukka boot but unsure of the sizing. Some says its true to size and others saying its 1/2 size larger. Can anyone confirm this? I''m a EU 43/44. Thanks.

    Depends on the last. unlined is usually in Leydon last which is TTS but can also come in Barrie last which is 1/2 size larger.

    I've noticed that my lighter shells (whiskey and ravello) turn black where the cordovan rubs against itself. It blackens fairly quickly where the quarters rub against the vamp on bluchers, or those parts of the creases that come in contact when my foot flexes. I can't seem to eliminate the marks, either, though I've tried using a brush, a damp rag, Renovateur, and wax. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Well done, Otis! I just got my first pair, which are cigar shell LWBs. Luckily, I got my sizing right :)
