I don't know how much experience you guys have had with using Saphir Renomat, but I bought some recently and gave a couple of pairs of shoes several doses of it over a couple of days. It does an amazing job of stripping away all the old polish from the leather (and it wouldn't entirely surprise me if it stripped away your fingerprints - I used rubber gloves while applying it).    I then used Renovateur and left it on overnight, brushed it off this afternoon and my...
I have one from http://www.barmahhats.com.au/panama.asp, it's excellent. There's a link on the website indicating retail outlets.
Thanks very much Smeggett.   Thanks Gerry. These particular Cheaneys were one of their subs/seconds range, and if you were to get on your knees and bend down and peer behind the buckle on the left shoe, you would in fact notice a couple of blemishes on the upper. Other than that, I can find nothing wrong with them. They are certainly well constructed, with a lovely leather glove-like lining, great value at 699MYR. In fact, I was never a fan of monkstraps before I put...
Purchased during a stopover at P.Lal last Saturday:     Crockett & Jones Connaught         Monkstraps by Cheaney.
With my card there is no fee, but the DCC exchange rate is worse than you would get using Visa/Mastercard's exchange rate, and from my belated research, I believe this is always the case.

Hi gents,   Just returned from a trip OS which included a stopover at KL on Saturday. Spent an hour or two at P.Lal. Quite an amazing shop. Bought two pairs, some nice Cheaney monkstraps in chestnut calf and some C&J Connaughts, also in chestnut calf. It's a shame that C&J are no longer supplying P.Lal, but probably just as well for my wallet's sake.   Now, something I learned a little too late on this trip is something called Dynamic Currency Conversion, which...
Gents,   Need a little help.   I have a 24 hour stopover in Kuala Lumpur very soon. I deliberately organised this to go to P. Lal, and get some C&Js. I've since found out that they might not have much available, so my question is,  is there anywhere else in KL that I should check out, specifically for shoes such as C&J, Church's etc.   Thanks in advance,   Eightace
A great deal I stumbled upon - new Allen Edmonds Cambridge in shell size 9.       http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110928064724&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:AU:1123#ht_859wt_1163
