    :thumbs-up:

    Great example of how black shell can work well with a casual outfit. Black shoes, chinos, buffalo plaid top all look coorindated.

    Natural Cmxl Indy's came in from Shoemart today. Pics to come.

    Mac, treatment on Chromexcel leather work the same way as your method for shell, or are there other special considerations?

    my wife and 2 kids all have strep throat. We are stuck in the house all weekend. I just spent the last 5 hours brushing, polishing, and venetian shoe cream'ing 7 pair of Aldens.

    Ahhh, the sweet smell of shoe care fumes in the basement.

    You can condition chromexcel a bit more often if you want - Alden Boot Cream (neutral), Venetian Shoe Cream are both good products for chromexcel. Care is generally same, wipe down with damp cloth, apply product, brush, buff

    Hello, all. I've been lurking for some time, and just starting posting the other day. I've really enjoyed the pictures and stories. I've also caught a bit of the Alden bug. It's not hard to, I suppose. At any rate, I'm trying to govern my impulses just a bit. Not sure how that will go. I'm the proud owner of some #8 Tanker boots and a pair of the Kudu LWBs, both from Leffot, and both purchased within the last month and a half. Naturally, I've identified my next purchase![​IMG]

    The Alden x Leffot Ravello PTB with commando sole is really talking to me. They're scheduled for delivery in mid-2012. Those are next, unless, of course, some other beauty works her way into the conversation. It's good to hear from you, NYR. It turns out you and I share two nasty habits: Alden and Epaulet Walt trousers.

    Thanks for sharing. I think you are definitely doing the right thing. Your wife will understand.

    If you're an academic, one of the nice things about improving your style is that you will find it very easy to become one of the best dressed men in your department, if not your university. Just don't let anyone make you feel self-conscious about it.

    Here's the pic - so excited!

    IRL, almost as a hint of a grey-tinge to it. The perfect pairing for my denim (which was the intention).

    Next pickup will definitely be a cigar LWB.
