    Hit those bad boys with a new wire brush...they'll be back to suede in a flash!

    I got mine from Context Clothing late last year.

    Leffot was taking pre-orders for them as well but I am not sure how many sizes are left to choose from with them.

    I emailed Context and they have an email list for when they next go into production. Leffot's also have a natural sole which I'm not a fan of (I know, you can change it yourself but I'd rather not).

    None at all. No rub with any contact.

    Storm, thanks for the tip

    Sure thing.

    If you have a suede brush you may want to try that first; it may work just fine. If not, then go with a tight-pattern new wire brush...lightly at first, just enough pressure to raise the nap.

    U can have a cobbler take the buckle off, trim it to size, and put the buckle back on. Alden SF has had it done to two belts for me. Maybe you can call them and ask who they use. They said the guy is just around the corner from them.

    Speaking of shoe trees, if anyone has interest in acquiring lightly used Alden and/or BB shoe trees in Medium (they are basically the same thing), PM me.

    Plus you can have the cobbler make a key fob or something with the excess.
