Adams LeatherWorks is an expert on holsters.Clarence E. Kapp (Kapp Brothers Shoe Mfg. Corp.) is an expert on shoes.John Arthur Wilson, Sc.D. is an expert on leather.The American Leather Chemists Association is an expert on leather.James Saddlery Australia is an expert on saddle.American Leather Producers, Inc. is an expert on leather.......If you have no objection on my excerpts, let's drop it.I thought you implied your experience was scientific.This is "making a fool of me".
Let's get this straight. Which my excerpts are hearsay? Only Pecard?If you read carefully them, you must have noticed that experts wrote them. Unless you point out mistakes, you just want to make a fool of me: Hey kid! Watch out for a passing Internet!

Though lexol conditioner is composed of cheap synthetic oil, it has a lot of credibility. This interview might be helpful for you.Below are fatliquoring agents and iodine values.

I think so, too. And I hope researchers or leather/shoes association do controlled experiments between clean vamp, dusty vamp, overpolished vamp, and so on.Shoe testing machine for determining the wearing quality of shoe uppers. (1936) - from NIST Photographic Collection, Leather Research
