  1. How to remove black spot on Red Wing Boots

    What caused that? You could brush them, then clean with saddle soap and then condition. Not sure if it’ll work, though. Failing that, I’d dye the boots a darker color to mask the spots.
  2. The Sneakers we wear with our jeans

    Well, as durable as the Lofgren sneakers are in other areas, the canvas on the heel counter still wore down eventually, so I had Dr. Sole glue on new, veg tan leather heel counters to keep these sneakers alive; before and after:
  3. I wear 10 in Lofgrens, Converse, and Vans; measure 10E Brannock. John's shoes and boots are essentially E width, so I just follow my Brannock size with his footwear.

    Not vintage, but got some new Harman Optical Wallis glasses:
  5. Show us your leather

    Looking great; my Skull Jeans medallion mid-wallet is my favorite wallet. Doesn't look like you need to condition it, unless you plan to clean it? If so, I like to use saddle soap and then Mustang Paste.
  6. Shoes that look better with age...

    I was just messing with Ed.
  7. Shoes that look better with age...

    Doesn’t Lone Wolf use CXL?
  8. Shoes that look better with age...

    Yep, as Dr. Sole showed me before, the rubber half soles RW uses are really cheap and all crack with wear. This is next level cheap

    I think it depends; sometimes sewing factories keep extra fabric on hand and can get working right away. They might be able to get it for you too, though it's possible that will cost a bit extra if they want to charge a bit of fee for that service. You can always source your own fabric/hardware/etc though and provide it to the sewing factory to use. So, hypothetically, you could buy scratch-and-sniff denim on your own and ask a sewing factory like TCB to sew it into jeans for you, if you like.

    I forgot about Workers too; they show up in each other's blogs on occasion. It's kind of fun if you like TCB too, to then discover these other brands and know that they're imbued with that TCB craftsmanship.

    @MasonAlexander Does your friend have a shop?
  14. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    My FW 1947 have a 31 cm rear rise and I'd say that length, give or take a few cm is perfect overall. In warmer months I can do more of a mid-rise though, as I won't be tucking a shirt in, and don't need a high rise to keep my haunches warm.

    I'm pretty sure they make the jeans and cotton duck stuff for Moto(r), as the owner Hideo Motoike showed up on the TCB blog and then shortly thereafter Moto(r) started offering USN denim pants, cotton duck pants, etc.
