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

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...
