I wanted to redo the antiquing on the toe area of some JM Weston plain toe bluchers and stripped the color of the toe area using Reno Mat. I've applied probably around 10 layers of Saphir cream and wax on the area, but I'm hardly getting the toe to take on the brown color (so it remains noticeably much lighter than the rest of the shoe, with a whitish slightly brown hue). Is it the case I should have considered whether I had crust leather vs. aniline dyed leather? I am now...

I like the low straights for the slightly higher rise and leg opening, but if I take the same size in the Low Straights as the slim fits (32), the LS are noticeably looser in the legs/upper block and waist (I can slide them down my legs with a good tug). I tried sizing down to 31 in the Low Straights, but they're really snug and end up fitting like...
