I'm incredibly tempted to order myself an MTO briefcase but I'm having a hard time finding examples of bags already made.   Does anyone have any pictures that you're eager to share?
I couldn't fins this on here, so I figured I'd share the current price list which I got from Rezso today:       Enjoy (Or slightly cringe at the slightly increased prices)!   Edit: Nevermind the cringe, still the best value for your money as far as I'm concerned.
So I finished the recolouration and I figured that I'd share it with you.   Here they are before with the right (actually left) shoe stripped of the finish but not a lot of colour. This pic was taken inside with a bad camera so they look less red in the pic than they did in reality.     This is after, also with a bad camera but with better lighting:       I have to say that I'm overwhelmed by the results and I'll be doing some more dying with more...
Hello,   I'm in the middle of recolouring my new Meermins since I found them so red-ish that I figured it wasn't fixable with just layers and layers of cream. Also, since they're in the low cost-segment I figured I might give this patinating thing a shot.   My question, however, is how much of the colour should I strip (I'm using saphir Decapant)? It seems I can't strip any more colour off, but the colour is still the original, albeit a lot more dry and...
But it's not the colour I want, it's still too red-ish even after I apply several layers of the polish and cream. Is the only way to achive a red-free hue to recolour? Or is black cream still a viable option?
Any good resources on patina jobs? I'd like to be well read before I do something like that (would be reeeealy fun though).
HI all,   I just recieved a pair of Meermin Elton dark brown double monk straps.   I find them waaaaay to red-ish and light in colour. I'm thinking of either recolouring them completely or heavily polish them with black saphir pommadier to darken the hue. Does anyone have any tips or experience with recolouring? Is it a good/bad idea to do the saphir-thingy?   Thanks in advance!   Edit: It should be said that I'm looking for a very dark brown hue.

Does anyone have any tips or experience with recolouring Meermin?   I know this should probably go in the shoe care thread but it looked pretty dead and I figured that I'm talking about a pair of Meermin after...
Hello everybody,   I have recently been looking for new buttons for my winter coat and have been driving myself crazy while looking for them,   I realized pretty soon that good button sources are hard to just come(my local button specialist, a really old establishment that supplies buttons almost exclusively, does not supply every button there is, to my great dissappointment).    I would love for you to share your button sources, prefereably thos that are on the...
Just got word that my neighbour signed for my Vass that arrived today. I'm seriously considering skipping work despite a visit from the company-wide CEO. I don't want neighborly fingers all over my new treasure. Jokes aside Ill be posting a wide array of photos as soon as I get home.
