I thought an LWS was a totally sweet Alden shoe I had never even heard of before - thanks for clarifying
what's an lws?
wow - I love this idea! going to stop tonight after work and pick up a buffing wheel! Why didn't I think of this?
what is the trick for touching up the natural antique oak edge? I have the LSxSF #8 shortwings that have taken a couple shots to the edge on the toe
cool - I looked back a few pages and it sounds like the godfather himself (tom at leathersoul) just wears them right out of the box, so that's what I'll go for as well.I had read somewhere that wax polishes arent the best. What do most people go with for #8 shell?
My #8 shortwings just showed up from leathersoul. Wow, I'm so glad I pulled the trigger. Ordered on Thursday evening, and they were at my desk first thing monday morning. Being this is my first experience with shell - are there any precuations to take when breaking these in? Obviously, shoe trees are an obvious need, but I thought I had read somewhere about using a pen to control the creasing? Thanks!
getting pretty close to page 1,000!
