Really helpful post. So glad you responded to my question.
Smoothing creases is a part of it, but not necessarily remving them. I'm not fanatical about them so perfection is not the goal. The concept always seemed a little crazy to me but when I got into the shell game I was so raw and getting varying opinions from all over the place. When I tried the deerbone, it seemed to work, but to your point and looking back on it, I'm not so sure that it was anything magical about the bone. Hence the reason for my question.Could be magical...
Looking for advice on a deerbone. I've had mine for about 3 years and it seemed to work. Lately I've changed my shoe care regimen and haven't used it much. However, I just picked up a pair of shells with some significant creasing and decided to reintroduce the bone to my regimen. Didn't seem to make any difference. My question is whether the recuperative powers of a deerbone degrade or wear out over time? Or if it really even works at all?
Speaking of Grayson's, wore these last night to a birthday dinner night out...... Prior to my introduction to shell, I would dye my shoes on a regular basis. These shoes were Burgendy and pretty beat up so i decided to see if I could bring them to life and black is the most basic color application. Definitely required a little more work than dying calf, but I am happy with how they turned out. They really shine up nicely, which doesn't come through in my crappy iPhone pic.
May just be the ultimate sockless shoe. Very cool.
Thanks. May be a new record for me.
As a proud owner of Alden tassels, your attempt at subterfuge was detected rather quickly. Having said that...........damn, nice tassels.
Thanks my-man. The pictures don't do them justice. Just not a good fit fo me so it's time to move on.
Damn, that is one nice pair of tassels.
