    Just brush them occasionally with a horsehair brush.

    You may want to keep some alden's wax paste (in color 8) on hand for spot polishing scratches and such. But use sparingly.

    As they're my cordovans in the pic, I can confirm what Trapp says.

    Horsehair brush, if needs be, wax paste in colour #8.

    gnatty, you're killin it. Might try to get the new season BBBF lw's in the beige color this week, since my lady is going to Japan; they're releasing them next week or so. Is BBBF lasting the same as an Alden house last or custom?

    Same as Alden lasts, I can't remember which they are on, maybe Grant?

    Haven't seen these tab BBBF LW you mention above, not on the website yet I guess, but sound great..

    Fiddy those aviators are nice.

    Do they run true to size? Or are they half size down?

    I really want a pair.

    I tried a pair on the other day. Very nice. I had to size down one half like for Barrie though. Also is 675 a good price for a pair of cordo longwigs to you guys? Seems a bit of a steep markup over the normal color eight.

    Thanks...

    These are 8's, which is the same size as my Clark's DB's and Chucks.

    Ah k, so you sized down from you usual size, as DB's + Clarks run a half size down.

    Thanks man.
