    I believe they are already closed. I believe renovations were scheduled to start earlier this month to make them an AE store.

    Keep them. Most would not even consider that a defect. Nice boots!

    Seriously! There must be some secret proprietary step in his method that he has not revealed to us. Haven't been able to get mine quite that shiney. Maybe its just his decades of experience.

    of Horween CXL

    How many cordovan Indy runs were done with machine stitching? I've only seen a few pairs posted online. I kind of like the contrast machine stitching on Mac's whiskey Indy over the hand stitching on mine...

    What happens to the cork bed in the resole process, is it replaced with new cork? Could B. Nelson do this instead of sending my LHS Cordo Penny to Alden? Thanks for the input, it's time for new soles on my #8's.

    I believe they shoot new cork in before resoling. I haven't used B Nelson, but I'm sure they do this.

    The shoe trees also seem to keep the rolls and creases down on my CXL boots.

    That belt looks great.

    Here is the one I picked up. Can get it in 1.5 or 1.25 width and silver or gold hardware (I got both sets of hardware for a bit extra). CXL looks great and wears perfect and the price is right.
