    Horrible service from Revolve IMO. The discount is an ok gesture but it seems like they are just rotating bad merchandise until they can find a sucker to take them. I know another member returned his 3 times before he got a pair he was satisfied. I wonder how many of those boots he received were other peoples returns. Why the hell would the only other boots they have in stock be boots someone else returned???? Shouldn't they get sent back to Wolverine as defective?

    wasn't there another company that was price matching Revolve? I seem to recall people getting wider sizes from another store for the same price.

    Well we are just finishing the driest June on record. Tomorrow it will be 101 here. So it would make sense that I placed my order for boots and an umbrella to OTF. They will honor the Revolve discount. Hopefully the boot will be flawless. Can't wait to get them even though it looks like I will not be needing an umbrella or boots in the near future.

    What should I treat my boots with once they arrive? I know there are a lot different water proofing products out there.

    obenauf`s. I always treat my boots right away after confirming I have the right size, new or not

    Nice share!

    I actually saw a Wyatt Brogue Chukkah in a light beige on ebay several weeks ago.

    That line-up is pretty disappointing, though, IMO. The only remotely interesting ones are the two Filson combinations IMO, esp the Emerson looks pretty nice to me. The rest though... yikes.

    I'm curious what the Audrick Brogue will look like. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Watson Oxford because I like the cap toe. I have a pair of the Darbys, and I'm pretty bummed they've been discontinued since mine need to be replaced. The Watsons are probably the next best thing.

    1K's in Rust from juancanjura. Highly recommend him as a seller - got both these and my 721LTD's from him.

    1. Ovened several minutes @170F on an old empty pizza box to warm-up
    2. Applied Sno Seal all over, especially generous along welt per Crane's recommendation
    3. Re-ovened several more minutes @170F
    4. Wiped down
    5. Brushed
    6. Wiped
    7. Several coats of brown Kiwi on the toe

    Can't wait to start wearing. I think I might need to buy more... Addicted to 1k's now...

    Just wish I could figure out how to polish up Chromexcel a little more, if possible - anyone know?
