Bump... went to a guy called Jon in the Blackwood shopping centre, in the same complex as Woolworths, but just in the arcade there. Highly recommend him - not cheap, but he seems to have a fantastic product knowledge, and has performed a perfect job - topying my Herring Premier's and re-soleing my Lloyds.   Recommend him - though, not the friendliest customer service I've gotten before.
Yea, I went to my local, and I'm not happy with the job he has done. Would not give him $400 pair of shoes again. Hoping to find a strongly recommended shoe repairer... as opposed to a local "ok" one :)
20Kms south of CBD.... but I can find time to pop over to Norwood at some stage. Thanks for the recommendation, will check him out. Really don't think there are too many options in Adelaide!
I love how you all think Sydney and Melbourne have no fashion sense!! I live in Adelaide.   Speaking of Adelaide, a need two pairs of shoes re-soled (one now, one in maybe 6 months?)..... They have been Topyed, but I think I want a proper re-sole. One is goodyear welted, the other is Lloyds (so I'm pretty sure it is not).   ANYWHERE in Adelaide that do re-soles? Or is my best bet Sydney/Melbourne? If so, where? I tend to go to both Sydney and Melbourne once a...
Hmmm, it looks like they have cut right into the sole to place it on.... so I hope that they haven't butchered it too much!! Now, the harder part.... where in Adelaide can I get them re-soled!? Might need to head to the AU Members thread for that one?  
Thanks for your help mate.   So, with the Herring Premier shoes, should I expect them to be able to be re-soled, even though they have been Topyed?  
Howdy,   Firstly, I live in South Australia.   Long story short... about a year ago I went to the *local* shoe repairer and asked them to Topy a new pair of leather shoes and to re-sole my Lloyd Polar shoes. http://markenschuhe.de/Lloyd-Polar-2976200-Schnuerhalbschuh-schwarz .The other pair of shoes is in the Herring Premier range.   The absolute idiot decided to Topy both pairs of shoes instead.   Now, one year on, the Topy is wearing on both pairs of...
Howdy all,   Looking for a BNIB & NWT Filson Field Satchel, posted to Adelaide, South Australia.   Going price on Styleforum seems to be around $550 http://www.styleforum.net/t/167315/bnib-filson-field-satchel-bridle-leather-briefcase-sold $550 with free shipping http://www.styleforum.net/t/126794/8-31-price-drop-nib-nwt-filson-field-satchel $515 + $15 shipping http://www.styleforum.net/t/143934/refurbishing-ebay-find-filson-field-satchel $250 for one in...
Fritzl, apparently this is not a simple question! Also, I was hoping for 'Herring Chamberlain' in the title, which I had hoped to increase chance of a good answer.   LeJouvre and Stirling, thank you for taking the time to provide healthy advice and debate.   So, in the end:   Stirling, are you recommending that I do: Shoe Polish Pate De Luxe SAPHIR MEDAILLE D'OR in Light brown every five or so wears? Then, if I feel this changes the colour too much, to...
The OP lost the matching polish that came with these shoes :(   Northampton, guessing, 'for example'.   LeJourve, I'm a bit confused about 'colouring'... Is http://www.hangerproject.com/closet/saphir-wax-shoe-polish.html 'colouring' and hence a 'no no'?   At the end of the day, I have Renaveutor, and I was planning to purchase one more product, which was going to be the Saphir Pate de Luxe Wax Shoe Polish 100 ml . Are you saying that if I was to only use two products...
