    Just received a pair of these. My first Aldens. Now, I just need some raw denim.

    Nice shoes, nice color suede. I've put leather dressing (Montana Pitch Blend) on my edges of all colors and have been happy with the result. My totally untested hypothesis is that this is moisturizing. Also, I happen to have the Pitch Blend and try to take a minimalist approach to shoe care products.

    I am not sure it is needed. I think the dust soaks up oil and also lightens the stain. I am not sure it turns it white. I picked up a suede kit from "Of Broadway Shoes" or something like that for a few bucks (no pun intended) once and I believe it had the eraser with a white and beige color though.

    I like those and have been looking for a non-cordovan brown shoe. Where did you pick up the brown CXL PTB?


    Edit : Question is directed at Seer's post on the previous page.
