    Thanks for the replies. That's a good tip on trying things out on the tongue. I guess I would eventually want it to darken, but for now I'm thinking I'd like that to be a more gradual process.

    This is generally the best choice, although it's important to protect and moisturize your leather as well.

    Yes that was the price I paid..
    It was the price in Hong Kong.
    Although the price was high, I still love them !

    Oh yes I know. I also don't buy Alden calf, but I make an exception for Chromexcel.

    The French calf that many European makers use is much nicer.

    to be fair, I love Alden CXL, especially the recent LS Plaza wingtip boot. Its a beautiful make-up

    There you go.

    (Also, would instakop that chesterfield in your sig, but it's too big for me. Any 42s should check out. Unbelievable price.)

    I love all the suede as well. I just wish they would make more BLUE shoes. A nice navy shell would be AWESOME!!

    thanks for the plug. Whenever I look at the coat, I think of NYR and his overcoats and #8 boots. Not cold enough in Cali to justify an overcoat.
