    Thanks mate.

    What do owners of natty CXL recommend in terms of care? Out of the products I own, I've got mutton tallow from Tender Co., and neutral Venetian shoe cream.

    Either of those applicable? I'm thinking of spreading some tallow over the boot and letting it sink in overnight. Sound about right?

    I have used either Obenauf's LP or Venetian Shoe Cream (Neutral), and they've been fine. Then lots of horsehair brush and buffing with a soft cloth.

    CT Boot is great, but I'm smitten by the atom. [​IMG] How old are they and where did you pick them up? Tremont or barrie last? I think you have most of my Alden grails! [​IMG]

    I believe these were a very limited run from TSM

    This was actually a pretty big deal in this thread for a week or so. You can find threads about it on ask Andy too if you use Google. Fun times.

    I missed out on getting my size in the Ultimate Indy from Leather Soul, but am very interested in finding a similar version of the Indy boot with a commando sole like that. Does anyone happen to know if any other store carries a similarly soled version? (I have seen Leffot's version of the 403, but would prefer CXL; plus they are non-returnable at Leffot which makes me a little leery because of getting the fit right.)

    Thanks.
