    Bakes, I actually hadn't read that but it makes a lot of sense and is very likely what I am experiencing. I think I am going to try to live with the spot as Uncle recommends and see if it becomes more pronounced as the leather lightens further. If that happens, then I might consider some remedy options. Thanks much for enlightening me.

    You are welcome, Sir.

    Glad that I could be of assistance, as you have been very helpful to me in the past.

    I don't think that it would be oil because shell already has natural oils in it, not to mention a waxy finish, so oil probably wouldn't stain shell in the same way that it does suede. (You wouldn't use mink oil on suede, but we love it for shell.) Unless it were hot used motor oil or something, in which case it would probably be more the contaminates in the oil doing the staining, rather than the oil itself.

    Bare bruk en proxy. De har sagt at der er greit, men det er bare Alden som forbyr de å sende til utlandet.

    Just use a proxy. Alden prohibits them from shipping shoes abroad.

    No expert by any means. But I'd say you need a pair of PTBs.

    Personal preference is king here.

    Since you apparently like NST's and captoes, the obvious choices would be to get a pair of King NSTs (meaning NSTs in color 8 cordovan). Or you could get King captoes -- either bluchers of balmorals although the balmorals are slightly more dressy than the blucher and less dressy is probably better for you given your dress code.

    If you don't mind the roundness (some say club-like) look of the PTBs, a pair of King PTBs would add a different style to your stable.

    I would go NSTs.
