I suspect one of the problems connected to why we don't like to think that shoe care have no effect is personal bias. Taking care of shoes is more of a hobby for me right now; I got a couple of shoe boxes filled with different waxes, creams, soaps, conditioners and so on, and I enjoy making worn shoes look their best. For me, conditioning leather makes it feel and look better, but that is close to no proof of it actually having the wanted effect. However, as I have huge...
VSC is not a conditioner, more like shoe cream as it name states.

For sale is a staple cable knit sweater from Polo Ralph Lauren. It is made from a very soft, plush, 100% cashmere. The colour is a nice dark/forest green. Worn just a handful of times. Retails for $280. 24" pit to pit. $70 -> $50
Selling a couple of beautiful LNWOT pocket square from Capelli. $35 each or $60 for both incl. wordlwide shipping. They have only been used about two times each. Their dimensions are 12" x 12" (30cm x 30cm).
The Cheaneys are better than the Loakes, albeit not by much. I would go for the pair that fits the well and you like the looks of the best.
