    You might want to get that checked out by a doctor if yours looks like that. :)

    Haha...so as not imply ownership, I used the indefinite article A dick, and not....MY dick. Bonus points to anyone who knows that reference.

    I have ordered from bureau Belfast before and it worked out well. Took a bit to receive but got a unique makeup. I would recommend them without questions.

    I agree, they look really nice. Definitely good to hear that they are hard to find. Sine they were defects the cost was only $300. At that price-point, I'll keep them.

    Need help fellas. How durable/resilient is cxl? I brought my natty cxl tassels to NYC, and the forecast has taken a turn for the worse. I have my treated suede chukkas, tassels, and a pair of canvas Sperry sneakers. Have some plans where my canvas sneaks will not suffice, and suede treatment or not, I'm super hesitant to wear the chukkas. Am I safe in cxl with a little rain?

    Why have you not shared pics of the Natty CXL Tassels?

    I can't believe you have the audacity to come to us asking for help while holding out on us in such an extreme way.

    I'm not sure that Natty CXL Tassels have ever been posted in this thread.

    Shame on you!

    Looking forward to it!

    I have eyed that model numerous times, but was unsure how I'd feel about it once it turned gold. Also a voice inside my head told me that I already have enough versions of the Tassel.

    One thing to note, is that when leather soles soak up water, they become soft and consequently wear much faster while they are wet.

    Bakes, the patina is what I'm most looking forward to. I've seen some natty cxl turn grey-ish (display pair of brixton boots in store at epaulet, a few weeks ago), which is much more worrisome to me

    Interesting, I think I would prefer the greyish. Maybe it has to do with brushing/not brushing? I defer to El Argentino, as our unofficial resident authority on natty cxl patina development.
