    Awesome, thanks. That is helpful. Neatsfoot oil is by Saphir, right?

    Neatsfoot oil is just an oil in the same way olive oil is an oil. It's sold by many different makers.

    I would recommend the Lexol Neatsfoot product however:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...reativeASIN=B000QFQE68&linkCode=as2&tag=tt-20

    which is also what Alden SF uses/recommends.

    I've used raw neatsfoot oil before and its sorta nasty stuff but the Lexol product has a much better consistency.

    Note, it's only recommended for chromexcel, not really for any and all leathers.

    Those look pretty good. I was disappointed that I missed them when they were on Gilt a few weeks ago.

    I just bought a pair in ravello, although I'm not sure they'll fit.

    I have not bought yet...but they may not fit. Crossing my fingers on that. Since it's Barrie last a good chance they will fit.

    would still buy ravello personally. I find it a more versatile color than whiskey, and harder to procure than cigar.

    I like Ravello best myself. The price for the Chukkas is $730 per pair. I just bought earlier today a pair of cigar split toe slip ons, and a whiskey full strap slip on. Don't own any of the chukkas, but the options out there so I thought I would ask. All of these are returnable within the typical return rules.

    This week alone I ordered monk strap whiskey, #8 NSB on barrie, both of those are irregulars from TSM, cigar split toe slip on, whiskey strap slip on. Plus looking at these Chukka's. Hard decision on what to keep, possibly all of them and also consider the chukkas in whiskey, ravello and cigar. If I had to pick 1 it would be the Ravello. I'm not sure on chukkas, never owned any. On this forum they seem to be popular.

    I also scored a whiskey belt!

    See Ya,
    Steve

    I would probably go Cigar chukka if they are not super dark
