    I've been enjoying all the recent pics, and the new drops from various shops. esp the boots. It's all reinforced my decision to wait for the Epaulet Natural CXL Longwings (Leydon last) in the spring. Missed them in the summer and keep returning to them in my head. A good sign.

    Hello and congrats on your purchases. For the Indy Saphir Renovateur, Neats Foot oil or even Clear Paste Polish in limited amounts should work.

    Brush and T-Shirt work for me. I try to keep the threads on the Indy white so I use a different brush for those boots so as not to transfer color. T-Shirt for rubbing and buffing around the threads seams to work.

    For the shoe....well that happens somethime. Try a VERY LITTLE water and more and more brushing and buffing. Or get some Saphir Renovateur. :)

    NICE!

    As for LS being bashed, Tom is top notch and will always be my first choice to purchase Alden's. :slayer:

    I just bought my first pair of J.Crew Alden Indys. I hope they are worth the hype...

    Just a note: those Tres Bien Indy's are on a Barrie last in an E fitting; I just e-mailed Tres Bien as to their ambiguous description of them. I was hoping to pick up their Snuff Suede indys but no luck
