    quick question about how to condition rough-outs?
    i'd like to strip the "dubbing" off, w/c it had for the past 2 winters.
    i'd like to condition them w/o dubbing.

    .... so i gave it a "lift". initially cleaned them w/Lexol leather cleaner, then 1st coat, Lexol conditioner

    drying out after the 2nd coat, Sedgwick leather conditioner

    2 days after treatment has sipped in & dry to touch. 'topped it off with a 3rd coat, Obenauf LP. i know some will disagee w/the conditioning overkill, but i thought i'd give it a feast before hitting the road. 'started out really dark, but they've lighten up quite a bit after 5days of wear.
