Chelsea Green Cobbler at 31 Elystan Street. He stocks regular Avel cream, and the Medaille D'or wax, cream, renovateur, etc. He has a pretty extensive selection of various brands of polish, cleaners, and brushes. Apparently the biggest selection of shoe care products in London. My sis uses him for her shoe repairs and swears he is good but as a woman she is basically dumb when it comes to shoe repair.

I tried a Bluefly and a few other online tie places but they problem is...
I hate the HR salesperson species as a rule.
I believe it is the precursor to Purple Label. I have an old Sartorial blazer which I've subsequently seen re-branded a PL, and have seen PL quality suits with the sartorial markings.
Funny post!I am pretty anal about things like shoe trees, and try to get lasted whenever possible. That said, I am not sure there is any additional benefit at all because the main point is to smooth out wrinkles and keep the soles flat, and non-lasted trees seem to do the exact same thing.
