Break out the calipers and measure the new vs the old thickness
Just back from a road trip vacation that included a stop off in Portland. Stops at the Filson store and both Voodoo Doughnut locations are de rigueur on these occasions, so I'm happy to report that the Memphis Mafia fritters are as delectable as ever and that, while I didn't have a lot of time in the Filson store as they were closing, I really didn't notice any great decline in quality in the classic lines of bags. Rather foolishly I didn't look for the cheapening of some...

Try ordering several pairs from an online source that...
Beer carriers. One for a slab and the other for a few stubbies,
Assuming that the polish is coloured, it is more likely to be the conditioner. I'd try using just the polish for a while to see if that help. I'm not sure what is in the RMW conditioner, but leaving it to dry and soak in for 12+ hours does seem to be a bit excessive. When I use a conditioner, I apply it in thin coats and let it soak in for a few minutes (and sometimes - mainly when using HDLP on boots - help it with a hair dryer) and then wipe it off. Be careful not to...
I think that is going to depend a lot on you and your fashion. They are a chunky shoe for sure, but I don't see why hey couldn't be worn with a respectable pair of shorts if you have the physique and fashion sense to carry it off.
