+1 ! the t-shirt (especially the underwear  ) has  a deap wave pattern which when used with force helps to remove old polish-build ups!! mostly i use it with Renomat!! let it rest for a day and then use  some wax and a sunglasses cloth (or similar) to buff (use it with your fingers not a spoon)!! it ll be like new
really beautiful shoes Jesper!!
a work of art!! nice monks Europrep!! love the  ungled bucklets
Did AE had a wholecut with 3 eyelets?  f ..... i have had seen that(clasic wholecut lover sindrome hahaha)  its only me or someone else can agree that the leather is creasing a quite strange way ?it looks like have some kind of plastic coating especially on the left shoe! but maybe its the lightning !! how they are in the long run?(i dont have AE shoes cause i think its quite ridiculous to pay 130-140 euro on import taxes  on a 230-250 euros pair)
send them back!! even for a sale and discontinued model this is unacceptable! conditioner wont fix the problem cause they already started cracking!!

All bees make wax in epidermal glands to cover their outer layer of cuticle to prevent water loss.Beeswax softens at 90 deg F (32 C) and melts between 143 and 151 deg. F (62-66 C). The flashpoint (temperature at which beeswax flares up and burns fiercely) is 490-525 deg F (254-274 C)Beeswax is very stable.

you wont have any problems with using renovateur  or lexol!! renovateur wont dry out your shoes( i use it on my shoes(museum leather too) for years with no issues) !!

  Generally if you use a wax-paste polish with no silicon in it , you wont have any problem to dissolve the mirror shine layer by using a cleaner conditioner( renovateur from saphir and lexol leather cleaner) ll do the trick easily !!  if you have a lot of layers added or a silicon based product(parade gloss from kiwi etc) you ll need something more drastic like RenoMat (in this case too you dont need to rub hard and by using a towel with 2 passes you ll be ok)
