 My mum has a Diana Ferrari Water and Stain Protector, can I use that for my suede shoes?
Just bought a pair of Loake Pimlico. They are my first brown suede chukkas and I was wondering how to care for them best.   So far I only have shoe trees in them but I know I'll also need a spray to protect it and a brush to clean it. Where can I get these shoe care products? 
I just bought the Saphir Renovateur from Double Monk.   Should I also get the Saphir cream polish (one for black and one for burgundy) for my Loake Aldwych and Strand? Or is the Herring polish that came with the shoes sufficient?   Also how important is a good horsehair brush? All these shoe care products are adding up to be more than the shoes themselves!
Thanks for the suggestions guys. They all look great and I've never seen wallets like these before.   They're all way out of my budget though which is only around $50. I like this Saddleback one for $21 but shame the shipping brings it out of budget: http://www.saddlebackleather.com/businesscreditcardwallet?quantity=1&custcol2=Chestnut&custcol3=Pigskin&custcol15=Current
So I realised I only ever carry my credit card, myki, driver's license and maybe a note or two. What would be a good wallet to hold all of these?   Maybe something like this? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Unisex-Men-Magic-Money-Clip-Wallet-ID-Bag-Credit-Card-Cash-Ticket-Holder-/351288461200?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&var=&hash=item51ca6c8790
I couldn't resist. I bought a pair of Loake Pimlico in Dark Brown Suede as well.   Where should I get my shoe trees for the Pimlico? I heard Double Monks was good but they're $50. Are they much better than these ones from eBay which are $28? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1-Pair-Mens-Cedar-Wood-Shoe-Tree-Shaper-Keeper-Wooden-Stretcher-UK-6-7-8-9-10-11-/191316572483?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&var=&hash=item2c8b5b3943   Also how do you exactly put shoe trees into boots? I tried...
Hmm that's odd. The Herring discount code I normally use for free trees use to give me the Herring Cedar Trees. Now they are giving me the Herring Expanding Trees which are made from Sanded Wood. Going to email them and see if they can change it but otherwise I guess Sanded Wood will do. 
Sorry to disappoint but I'm actually on quite a small budget. The cheapest burgundy belt on Herring is the Kensington for around $123AUD.   Would something like this be ok? http://www.uniqlo.com/au/store/men-no-stitched-belt-0872410002.html   I can already feel the cringes I'm bound to get...
OK I'm going to get the Strands in Burgundy from Herring! Now to find a burgundy belt, I've actually never worn burgundy shoes before so I have no idea what to expect. Should be fun. Any recommendations on an inexpensive burgundy belt is greatly appreciated. 
 Now I want to get the Strand in Burgundy. I'm a bit worried about the Loake Ledbury though since I don't know my size and I was hoping to start a Capital Last collection. Considering I only have the Black Aldwych now and I won't be buying another pair of shoes until next year, what should I get as my 2nd dress shoe for daily rotation with the Aldwych? I've narrowed my options down to the Burgundy Strand, Dark Brown Buckingham or another pair of black shoes. Dress code at...
