    Snow expected tomorrow in NYC... Business casual dress code for Friday (I will be in chinos)... Should I wear the CXL chukkas or throw on the cigar captoe boots on commando (after a coat of leather defender)?

    Looking to get my first pair of shell boots an need some suggestions. My work environment is very casual, basically jeans and button downs or a sweater. I was thinking plain toe with crepe???

    I've had good luck with the spoon and saphir reno.
    I got a deer bone and that works too and is infinitely moar skeevy.

    Came home to some Cigar captoes sitting on the porch! Initially I like the Grant very much. Certainly more narrow than my Barries or Trubalance but a really nice feel.

    The cigar is much darker than the chukka version I tried on recently but going to wait for the sun to be out tomorrow to judge the color.

    The boots did come with a bit of a demur. I have attached a pic. Do you guys believe this is something I could buff out? Or no?[​IMG]

    I believe you could work that out...

    But having arrived in that condition would be unacceptable to me.

    Personally, I'd ask for a price reduction from the source and then deerbone/buff it out.

    Agree on the deer bone and brushing will get that one out....

    Also agree that this is an unacceptable condition for a new boot. They should do something for you.
