    No, but I'll try to here in the next day or so. I use a small, small amount (mostly on the toes and heel area and any other scuffs) but I like the color change over time.

    meant to address it to brothersharp...looks good though rkd.

    I recently picked up a pair of #8 indy's and waiting for a pair of LS black tankers from a forum member [​IMG]


    Sorry I never knew the name they're just some Chamois leather Cap toes. They look pretty much like they do in the second pic, the first one was edited so details could be seen. And relax guys, no need for the tough love. This is the just the way I've always worn any of my shoes, jeans or jackets. I don't see a fine line between 'wearing them because they're meant to be worn' or 'massive misuse'. I just see boots. When the soles die on me i'll get them resoled. No big deal.
    Apologies for the 'handcrafted' bit, I didn't know!

    Do you use wax on your whiskeys or ravellos? They seem to be just a tad darker brown than stock colors. I'd be interested to know the colors/brands of the waxes you use, if any. I know you've said you use kiwi brown on your cigars.

    Leffot in the west village is great. Very friendly and helpful every time I stop by and he always has interesting makeups.

    These are my first pair of Aldens so I didn't know much of what to expect from them. I bought them back in October, and all that I knew was that they looked nice and were handcrafted--therefore being durable to the point of achieving 'lifetime-lasting' status. Luckily, the post holiday blizzard in NY gave me a great chance to see exactly how durable they were.

    Tried and tested. I can officially say that I'm impressed. I don't know too many boots that could have withstood that storm.


    Did you get these from the NYC Alden store? I think I got the same same pair (40705), I think they're kudu cap toe on barrie last (last confirmed by email with alden), I posted a pic a few pages back http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/n.../photo-8-1.jpg

    these cigar indys are from leffot

    How have you found the unlined eyelets? That was a turnoff for me when I saw them. I notice you have faux lacing, which seems a smart thing to do with them. Regular lacing with the unlined eyelets looked odd in person.

    Thanks Mac! Very useful info.
