I was shocked to say the least. I've used Kiwi all my life. No mention of alcohol is made on the tin. Just "a unique blend of natural waxes and genuine vegetable turpentine". Furthermore it is said to nourish the leather. RM's tin gives no clues as to the contents. But...

I like a little more shine so I'll be polishing (with RM's product) and using the conditioner maybe once a month. I have the same goal: these boots are gonna last me the rest of my life. My only problem will be deciding on what pair to have on...
Just back from a week in Oz. Found time to visit RMW's cradle: 5 Percy Street in Prospect, a North Adelaide suburb. The visit cost me.

Really looking forward to them. The purchase was inspired by the pics you posted on the porn thread. BTW , what colour polish or cream do you use on them? Cheers
Quote: Originally Posted by Biscotti I've had several yearling RMW boots, so four total. The quality of yearling varies incredibly. I have three pairs in yearling. Two chestnut and one black. The appearance of the leather is certainly different between them but I imagine that the quality of it is the same. I'm developing a mirror shine on the toe-caps and heels (just love well-polished heels; nothing beats checking folks shoes from behind)...
