    A few weeks ago I went tromping through NYC all day in my CXL Indys ... in a total downpour ... the kind of rain that you just don't want to be in at all... and the boots held perfectly fine... and I didn't treat them with anything at all. No cream, no polish, no defender, none of the above prior to wearing them that day. Feet stayed dry as a bone, and after the shoes dried out and I buffed with a rag and a brush, they looked immaculate

    You could probably sell your 2nd tin to someone here. You seriously will not need it since you use like less than a cap full of the stuff for a pair of shoes.

    I think many people here would agree with you about the look of aged Natural CXL ...

    No kidding! They listed some 6 eyelet ankle boots that I really liked but you can't get them!

    yeah those bootmaker editions usually start at size 8.5, bad for those with smaller feet :(, sometimes the very popular ones will be made in sizes smaller than 8.5, in which case if its something you are interested in you'd better jump on it because they usually only have one in stock of each size, good thing Shoemart has a good return policy

    +1, very frustrating that they put all these shoes up w/o a stock to buy

    the cigar boots seem decent, especially for being on the Aberdeen, a nice touch that takes away a lot of the "grandpa" effect of a 6-eyelet boot

    Note the Aberdeen last in this pic ... and the heel, which, despite mediahound's objections is.... clearly NOT the M58 last

    Also like this pic:

    Ew. The chukka is bad enough, but they had to add the NST, which is probably the worst look ever on a shoe. Together, it's like a spoonful of urine covered feces. YMMV.

    I wonder if they're on the barrie last?

    What is a good place in Chicago to pick up Alden in term of selection and stock level?
