    Those those are really nice, little tanks and vintage indy's are in tobacco chamois, which is extremely different in character from natural cxl. IMHO these are closer to the shoes you mentioned:

    (And both have stock in your size... for now!)

    Trinitrogen Oxide, you could try wiping them down with a slightly damp cloth, but really they are boots and that is no problem.

    I don't even know what's on my boots from last night. made sure to wear beaters.

    Yeah, Atoms are on tremont... Honestly I admit the first day I wore them I was worried about them being too snug, but they broke in well and now feel good. It is truly on the borderline - I go wider in grant (the next tightest on the size scale)

    Leffot day trippers?

    Wore my pair today as well. I'm thinking of adding some commando soles to them.

    Based on the release dates of the two boots one might suggest that Leffot "borrowed" from the Tassels Hunting Boot when they came out with the Day Trippers - what's that saying about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery?

    I too plan to visit Tassels - maybe a stop-over in Hawaii, then on to Hong Kong and end up at the Bureau in Belfast. Around the world with Aldens.

    Leffot has actually made this boot every fall for several years, so I believe it's the other way around. They've only recently been putting all their special makeups online.

    Yes I did buy them from Tassels, it should be the only place selling Alden in Hong Kong, definitely worth going.
