I'm grabbing the Tanner Traditional Belt myself, just not sure if I want the London Tan or Natural.

Need to find a wallet too but everything I like has no coin holder in it smh Damn Australian currency.

I used to work for Red Wings during 98, we always help oiling customer boots. Oiling them with mink oil once a mth will help darken & soften it. Most importantly repel water. Once the leather is soften it will be damn comfortable to wear. Enjoy those boot... blushing

Wait, if its nonsense then why do it?
March 21, 2010 @ 00:00:54

March 25, 2010 @ 22:05:24
Eric just sent me an email saying it shipped last week and that it should arrive shortly.

jakeandcoke, the site specifies the creation and shipping of the belt taking a bit of time so that's why I waited.
March 25, 2010 @ 22:20:32
Yea man, sorry for the late response, mine shipped out today or yesterday he said, Fucking excited for this shit, will keep you guys posted as soon as i get it.

When you get a leather good does it just age naturally throughout wear or do you have to oil it? Just wondering cause I'm copping a corter belt and wanna know if I should get some oils or whatever.
March 29, 2010 @ 20:25:47
Its both, and can someone recommend a good oil for OILING BELTS

thats what most of the sufu dudes uses and swear by when it comes to protecting their leather goods. I might try it out on my wallet when its starts to show some aging
