    Going to add quite a few more calfskin. I think they are underrated.

    The whole can on 2 pairs. Its small for an aerosol can, but I understand what you are saying. It dried quick (almost instantly) compared to other suede protectants that I have used, so I just kept on applying. Hopefully they are thoroughly protected from my generous application.

    At the same time, I did it outside, so a lot of it might have gotten taken away with the wind.

    Anyway, yes, the whole can, no adverse effects.

    I agree that the AE spray runs out faster than I expected. I make one or two quick passes with the spray from about 8 inches to a foot away.

    I got caught in heavy rain the other day in some suede chukkas, and the water beaded up nicely.

    No worries. I put on an even coat. Let t dry. Then apply again. Seems to be sufficient as water beads up nicely on the of chance I get caught in the rain . . .

    Yes. They are great. Kathy in DC helped me with these. I went with my Barrie last size for the Tremont. The fit is a little snugger but quite comfortable.

    No problem.

    I picked up a pair of the black unlined LHS earlier this year on another corporate sale.
    I was sort of surprised to find they fit a bit tighter than my lined one.
    Dunno if that's just production variation or an attribute of the unlined vs lined.

    My unlined suede PTBs are significantly more snug.

    It seems like most people here have commented that unlined suede typically fits a tad snugger than their lined counterparts in pretty much every situation.

    You are right. You don't see them on here too often.

    Wear in good health!
