Very nice pair again @MoosicPa! You orders all look very clean and elegant.Now then, the question we all want to know, what shipping did you take and did you pay a customs or import duty?
Agreed, that's why I've got a pair on the way  Imagine my surprise, this looks like the exact make up I have on order..!  @Leaves what last are these on and with which sole? It looks like it might be chiseled but maybe this split toe gives it that appearance and it's actually just the classic.  Either way, they're absolutely stunning~!
 I use a pig-hair brush after every wear.  They look great after lots of use.  I've tried all kinds of erasers and brushes over the years.  The metal brushes are too harsh, but the synthetic nylon brushes are sometimes too soft and ineffective.  I don't use the protective spray, but I'm sure it will work fine.  ( I actually have a bottle of that Saphir branded stuff someplace.)  Something about spraying chemicals onto it doesn't seem like it's a great idea--over time....
Absolutely. There are any number of excuses. I don't know/understand mine, but I say that as I await a St.C double order and consider more for later in the year...
Yes, sure, but objectively speaking it's still an eye-watering amount to pay to protect your feet!
Yes, and less expensive!
Sounds like they just want to make sure you get the right size. I also size down a half size in St.C from G&G and Alfred Sargent.That sounds like your answer right there. Incredible service.
The Armoury NYC is also a good option for US buyers. I've placed my (modest number) of orders through them. I can't speak for Leffot/Leather Soul/others but I know the Armoury is capable of helping with style and fitting customizations outside of trunk shows which I have taken advantage of.I've also never heard of ordering straight from St.C, would that be ordering through their Vienna store?
Be sure to dilute with water. I use at least at 5:1/water:vinegar mixture. Sometimes even close to 10:1. Vinegar can damage the leather so it's best to heavily dilute and apply multiple times until the stains are gone. It may sound onerous but it will prevent serious damage.
Very nice! I've thought about a similar make up myself. I would love to see more detailed pictures when you get a chance!Sadly I have yet to see such a color from StC. Vintage Rioja is one of my favorite colors as well. The closest I could get was asking for darker 511 it came out okay but it was still more like a dark Cherry, I like it alright but it's no Rioja . I've thought about asking if they can make a "midnight" 511 like they've done with the color navy...
