I like this much more than most of your posts, Bigwig. Would be better still without those cuffs.
I'll tell my neighbour her play was much ppreciated : )I don't really do anything special with my calf skin shoes, as far as maintenance is concerned. I just apply a very, very thin layer of wax once in a while and then brush it out after 15+ min with a horsehair brush. Wouldnt use a nailbrush like I'm using on the cordovan for calfskin unlses its church's bookbinder leather. (Thats is calf, isnt it?)The cotton cloth is only placed over the nail brush as the bristles are...
This is how I 'do' cordovan. Definitely not the one and only way but it works fine for me. I'm no cordovan expert so any thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Free background noises from planes, birds, the neighbour and a housemate.
Nice one, TB82 : )
Thanks mate! Its an old Etro. Had it for nearly 10 years now.
Messin' around with the boat.
I haven't had any problems yet just using renovator as post-strippng nourishment; imo it does a good job. My Asquiths, on which I firts tried this a few years ago, are holding up nicely.
The 2-tone are old Santonis that belong to a friend of mine and the chukkas are Bestettis that belong to a forum member who asked me me to colour them. I started off just doing my own (old) shoes but recently several friends and acquaintances have taken an interest in my projects.
Its originally a British naval jacket for bridge personel on submarines. This model is an updated version of the Ursula. I bought it mainly because of the detachable hood which comes in handy when I go fishing. The bag is filled with shoe polishing stuff and fishing tackle in a 50-50 ratio . [[SPOILER]]
