Crockett & Jones dark brown oiled leather Islay wingtip boots. Brand new in box. Size 8.5D (US). Picture Gallery This is the roughout leather version of the standard C&J Islay boot seen here. Retail for $660. Offered for $330 + shipping and fees. Local pickup in Boston area welcome.   I've sold lots of high-end stuff on eBay including boots and watches (16 years 100% positive feedback). Happy to provide references.   Full info: 1.25" (30mm) heel...
I got a small scuff on some black lizard skin boots that shows the tan color beneath the black finish. What's the best product to fix it? (It's very small but noticeable because of the color difference.)
I bought a pair from that guy, they're really nice in person. sadly I need 8EE so it looks like I'll be sending them back
thanks. that looks like a neutral color though, so I assume I would still see the scuff after applying it. it doesn't look like they offer a black version.
I got a scuff on some black lizard-skin shoes (so you can see a bit of the lighter color underneath the black). Could someone recommend a good polish/conditioner to fix this? My understanding is you can't generally use the same product as for non-exotic leather.
If you're like me, you visit quite a few menswear stores every week to see what's new in stock and on sale, and it's a pain to remember which stores you've visited recently, and what products you've seen already, so you miss stuff or it sells out.   To solve this problem, I made a site that shows all the new and sale stuff from specific menswear stores on a single page as soon as it becomes available. You see all and only the stuff that's new since the last time you...
Follow up to my earlier question: I bought some used flat head 3009's, unworn but hot soaked for 45 mins. I was wondering if this was enough or I should hot soak again to get out residual shrink. Someone on SuFu advised "Just soaking FH jeans doesn't fully shrink them, I'd say give them a full wash (with or without soap) in warm water.  Agitation is absolutely crucial to get all the shrink out at once.  Don't worry about losing indigo, FH denim is insanely dark and...
I just bought some used flat head 3009's. The original owner hot soaked them 45 mins but otherwise they're in new condition, tag size 33, measure 32. Should I bother hot soaking again to get all the shrink out, or is that just a waste of time?
I want to send an order as a gift, but there is no gift option. Do packages automatically come with a gift receipt, or should I email a request for this?   (I searched the thread for 'gift' but didn't see any relevant result.)
given a natural (no break) inseam of x inches, how much extra inseam should be added for stacking, and how much for a 2-inch cuff?   ie if I have a 30-inch inseam with no break, is 32 enough for stacking (no cuff), or should I use more? and then I assume add 2 inches more for a 2 inch cuff?   (I don't want anything too radical and I am not looking to impress anybody.)
