Does anyone have experience with tlb box calf leather? How does it wear over time?
I've found it to be excellent, really nice feel to it but it is durable too. As good as any other brand. It shines up nicely as well.

How long have you had them? Approximately how many wears ?
I got my first pair of TLB shoes over 2 years ago. I look after them (they are easy to polish etc) but I live in the UK where it rains a lot in the winter and I wear them no matter what the weather.

Bruh, switch up your angles. You keep leaning on the same one, and no one will respond to your trolling by turkey time.
I agree with you very much. I have very few discounts on my shop and only because I am discontinuing them or want to trim the selection etc.

They already work with low margins, they have a quality product even for full price, priced competitively and he doesn't want to devalue his brand. Which I respect and I am also doing the same. Looking for a good deal is fine, but we also have to make a living. Asking for a deeper discount on a Crockett Jones Handgrade which is $490 (down from $610) which would cost you $870 is just sad.

A free belt is not "amazing" but still a pretty good extra for a high quality item.

(sorry for the rant). TLB is great. Support Toni.

A couple pairs have made it to taobao. Looks like about 650 USD shipped to the US.

Curious to see how they aged, do you have any recent pictures?

Woah. Definitely need details on this one. What last and total cost for the MTO?
Velazquez last, tbh I don’t remember the price as it was 2 months ago. But definitely less than C&J handgrade and my first impression is that they are on a similar quality level. Although only time will tell if the leather is of really high quality.

These are now on my wishlist. The last, leather and overall look is so gorgeous.
