    Thanks guys. Thats my other love with, too much $ invested. Has been for over 10 years. I service hydraulic systems (mobile and industrial). I feel like a black sheep in this industry though. I pull wrenches with the best of them, but on my lunch break i'm looking at other men's shoes on Styleforum :embar:. you should hear the jokes i get on an hourly basis! Forget trying to explain the appeal of Alden to a bunch of snap-on jacket weaing, truck driving, farm boys...:facepalm:

    Love the way the "natural" ages. There is just no other leather on the market that looks like this.

    Thanks! Sometimes it can almost fool you if you don't see the wrinkles CXL has normally.

    agreed, so nice.

    Seeing pics like this make LHS vs. Tassels the toughest decision I have to make this spring #firstworldproblems

    Thanks guys. These tassels are probably my favourite pair of shoes. I use them a lot with almost everything. #8 in bright sun is something special...

    I have been looking at the tobacco chamois - how do you care for that leather? What do you use on it - any pictures?
