Has anyone ever used leather dye to change the colour of their shoes?    If so, what did you use?   How did it go?
No longer SF approved, Calibre used to make some very nice gear. I bought these 100% wool trousers about 13 years ago, and I've moved up a size since then, so it's time for them to go.   Size 32   Waist measures 32 inches   Inseam measures 81cm⁄32inches   Front rise - 11 inches   Rear rise 15.25 inches   Thigh - 10.75   Knee - 9.25   Leg opening - 8.25
Brand new with tags Canali pants Size EU 50 ⁄ AUS/UK/US 34 Cotton⁄elastane fabric Slim fit Colour - slate blue Measurements: Waist - 34 inches Inseam - 35.5 inches   Front rise - 9 inches   Rear rise - 15.25 inches   Thigh - 11 inches   Knee - 8.5 inches    Leg opening - 7 inches   Bought a few weeks ago from another (splendid) SFer, unfortunately the slim cut doesn't suit me.   $99AUD + postage
MINT condition Canali sportscoat in grey houndstooth. Size EU 48 Fully canvassed. Dual vents. Measurements: Shoulder to shoulder (across back) - 18 inches ⁄ 46 cm Pit to pit (laid flat - across front) - 21.25 inches ⁄ 54 cm Waist (laid flat - across front) - 19.75 inches ⁄ 50 cm Length (from bottom of collar down the back) - 30.5 inches ⁄ 77.5cm Sleeve - 25 inches ⁄ 63.5cm   $149AUD (that's only about $105USD!!!!!!!)   plus postage
Robinson's Irish brogues.Mine are different from the styles shown, but they are superb quality for the price I paid, and very comfortable.
Not with a courier, but I had a pair of shoes disappear on their way from Melbourne to Sydney. Australia Post. If anyone sees a postie wearing size 8 burgundy Carmina wholecuts, let me know. And post a pic to r/wtf for good measure.   [[SPOILER]]
TIFU.   Bought a pair of Canali pants from a fellow SF member.   Didn't pay attention to the measurements. They are a slim fit. Not my cup of tea.   They're  BNWT size 50/34, in a mid-blue cotton/elastane. Great pants, just too slim for my liking.   Cost me $115USD, I'll take $115AUD ONO if anyone's interested before I put them the classifieds.   PM if interested.
[[SPOILER]]  I found a solution (see what I did there?). Went to Lincraft, got some dye, followed the instructions, and voila:   A small victory.
 Do you know Brendon, it did actually cross my mind when I posted earlier that someone might have a little snigger at the unfortunate colour/position of said stain, but I thought to myself "No, those guys on SF are an urbane, sophisticated lot, and it wouldn't even cross their minds." So I went ahead with my public service announcement so that no other reader would suffer the same fate by splashing something inappropriate on their favourite pair....of trousers. Clearly,...
Trap for young players: Sard wonder soap is a little too effective sometimes. I may have ruined my favourite trousers.
