There's a Saphir Reptan cream but the people at Corthay HK say that Saphir creams are okay.
Let me know if they fit a UK9 But seriously somebody elses bespoke shoes (expensive though they may have been) do not fetch as much as you think.
Tailor said they'd refund me, which I'm assuming includes the cloth. I'm waiting to see what happens. I think it'll be okay in the end. Luckily it's summer so I wouldn't get to wear it for ages anyway.
