  1. How to remove black spot on Red Wing Boots

    Looks like you got mold? But the boots look new? What did you do to them? How to treat them depends on what the black spots are...
  2. Show us your leather

    New card wallet in natural Buttero from Morgan at Full Grain Creations. First time I've seen multi-tone saddle-stitching stitch. Super cool... Full review and more photos here: https://indigoshrimp.wordpress.com/2018/01/13/full-grain-creations-the-lexington-card-wallet-review/
  3. Show us your leather

    Regular brushing is key! https://indigoshrimp.wordpress.com/leather-care/
  4. Shoes that look better with age...

    It's a great work boot leather for sure, and truly Americana. But given the material cost and the actual quality of the leather, better suited for sub $500 boots. I certainly don't miss the days back in 2011 when absolutely everything was made with CXL. Now everything is shell which isn't so much better - where's the grain? Is it leather if it has no grain? I recently saw a Japanese boot maker offering Baker's oak bark leather, which is pretty cool. Yes, I think CXL, various latigo leathers, etc. I think for strict repro boots those leathers are great.

    Really odd that the leather portions are looking very well preserved. I wonder who manufactures their synthetic soles.
  6. Tanuki Japan

    LOL, the earth tone jacket just got stocked at Blue Owl a couple of days ago and is now sold out... I'm hoping to review the jeans later this year.
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    The W & Anchor Bros. type II work shoe. Horween Essex leather. Double row Goodyear welt, storm-welted. Dr. Sole Originals heels and soles.
  8. Shoes that look better with age...

    Super interesting boot for sure. Why CXL and not something like Essex, at least though. I've never understood CXL on expensive boots, but Japanese brands like Lofgren, RDT and my own pair of Monad boots are the same... CXL is 5 bucks a square feet.

    @Cold Summer I remember rocking a pair of rib cage height Issey Miyake trousers back in 2008. Would do it again!

    I got some of my English shoes rebuilt at Dr. Sole. Pretty nice work. Corded nitrile soles & heels, natural leather mids and stacks, natural storm welt, Goodyear, Norwegian stitched at the heels:

    I hear some heavy weight, earth tone denim is coming soon - jacket and jeans. Btw, the regular cut has been modified since I reviewed one of the earlier versions. To be sure, get your retailer to measure out a pair for you!
  14. The Rite Stuff

    Nice pick ups! I've been wearing the Henley quite a bit recently, very versatile and fits great for broader guys too.
