    Has anyone used this leather defender product for any significant period of time? Alden DC included some in my whiskey Indy purchase. While it goes against the Mac Method, I am considering using it for the cordovan shoes I intend to expose a bit to the rain (cigar PTBs on crepe, maybe these whiskey indy boots)

    Would love to know more about the cap toe boot. Tried to call but haven't heard back. I'm hoping it's a perforated cap toe like the jcrew boot. Anyone know anything more? Last info would also be helpful.

    for me, i would do a chinos in a variety of colors. for denim, i'd try and do something a little lighter so you get some contrast with the navy suede (i.e, not a brand new pair of raw denim, though that would like nice too).

    Yes. Navy suede is very versatile. When I got my unlined ptbs in navy I didn't appreciate this at first, but that was only because the colour seemed unusual to me. But it does work. Especially in the summer.

    I was told its going to be just like the current calf captoe boot they offer on the barrie, so a straight cap, no perf
