    Gents, I'm based in Australia and have a pair of Alden for Leather Soul CXL Pitt Boots that I'm looking to sell.

    They're size 9.5D on the Barrie last, and are beautiful boots for fall/winter. I've worn them around 15-20 times, so they are showing some signs of wear. I look after them well, and sale will include original Alden bags and boxes. Please PM me for pictures before I place them up on B&S. Shipping to US from Australia is $70 AUD.

    NB. These retailed for $595, and per my understanding, are currently not available in Leather Soul stores.

    Even if they're duty free (which they should be) UPS will likely ding you for their fees.
    The last time I got charged from UPS, total was $58 for a pair of Tricker's.
    That includes the customs and the UPS fees. I'm not sure of the breakdown of fees for UPS, but fedex charges $25 for clearance + $5 advancement fee.

    I'm a fan! I used it last winter/spring on my 403s. I only use it on "rugged" calfskin, and only during the rainy season. Otherwise I use Saphir Reno. Leffot has a video on it; if you haven't seen it: http://leffot.com/2012/01/22/boot-dressing/

    Yes--I've not taken them out in heavy rains, but light showers have been fine. They darkened just a touch with the treatment.

    I've finally decided to go with some #8 PTBs, now just trying to determine where to buy from. Is there any place to get these at a discount? They seem to be $625 everywhere I see them but I know they are one of the most common models available.

    i used Montana Pitch Blend on some CXL Plaza wingtip boots., two coats, per Leffot's recommendation. as mentioned, it does darken the color a bit but goes back to normal after about a week or two, i've found.

    there's a Leffot application video here.

    here is a picture of my boots 24 hrs. after applying. you can see the darkened color pretty well, despite the poor quality of the pics.

    well these are brand new, so first application. but i just brush 'em after each wear, and i figure i'll clean and reapply when water stops beading on them.
