    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My snuff suede pub last night on the nyc subway. Really enjoying these. Does anyone have any suggestions for maintaining the edges? I use black edge dressing for my lwb, but that would obviously not be good for the antique edges here.

    Which Indy model is this? I like that it is more brown than red. I almost took the plunge on a pair of NAT CXL and thankfully someone bought the one in my size :satisfied:

    Nice shoes, nice color suede. I've put leather dressing (Montana Pitch Blend) on my edges of all colors and have been happy with the result. My totally untested hypothesis is that this is moisturizing. Also, I happen to have the Pitch Blend and try to take a minimalist approach to shoe care products.
