    Quick hotel shot of new #8 LWB. Same size and last as the Ravello PTB I posted previously, but these are even more comfortable. Incredible, right out of the box! OTOH, may not be the best jeans for them, but I couldn't resist a quick photo while performing the Mac break-in method.

    Simplistic does not mean simple, it is a rather unflattering term meaning oversimplified. Surely there is nothing oversimplified about the Alden PTB (on the berrie last...)

    ^^ Yes, you are in Japan ... you should be sporting a pair of nice crispy and dark raw selvedge denim.
    But if you plan to cuff, avoid orange-line selvedge ... poor combination with #8 from my personal experience.

    Thanks for the tip. That sounds like good advice.

    Wow, that does look quite worrisome.
    I caused the same issue (albeit on much smaller area) on my 975 by using my finger nail to knock off a peice of lint that was stuck on the surface. The thin, glossy finish flaked off the surface with the lint, revealing a dull underlayer.
    I look forward to hearing what others have to say.

    Yeah... I don't think it's blooming. There is a layer of finish that has peeled off completely and there is a difference in finish between the two leathers. The spots where things have flaked off are noticeably more matte and a darker color.

    Turns out their online inventory is not up to date. They just cancelled my order. What a Frans Boondoggle. I'm pissed.

    I ultimately canceled my order for the new LSxSE boots - I wanted to love them but just couldn't - so, if anyone is looking for a size 9D, give Tom a call -
    for what it's worth, I instead picked up the Alden x Epaulet Black and Tan Indys, brand new in the box (!), off Ebay
