I've tried, and I am not very happy with the results. I don't know what cream will improve the richness of it without changing it much.

¿darker brown? ¿Burdeux? ¿chili?

What do you guys use?

What about vintage Cherry? I also have a pair on that colour, and I never know what to use.

I have some polish called Havana (kind of redish brown) but I think some cream from time to time would get it better, but I don't know in which colour.

Kind regards,

Iván

with my bespoke warwick's Tony gave me a red wax, not sure which tone it is from saphir it but i use the mohogany cream and wax also

Do you think I could try burgundy cream from Saphir, or that I would spoil the finish?

Does anyone have any recommendations for polishing G&G shoes in racing green? I've used a couple of Meltonian's green colors (cream polish), but I haven't been able to get it right. I've even tried adding black cream polish as well, but it still doesn't seem right.

HAs anyone managed to actually buy anything from Bespoke England? I have been trying to buy a couple of pairs of shoes and boots for about 3 months now. I wonder whether it isn't just easier to deal with a retailer and run the risk of a crappy fit - or just go back to wearing EG and Lobbs

yes.
Nick is a pleasure to deal with.
He communicates quickly and will allow returns if you aren't happy with the fit.

Cool....I was wondering about using just black polish. Does that have any effect on the creasing? I mean...does the creasing become more apparent when a darker shade of polish is applied? Either way, I'm going try it this weekend.

thanks again...

not really thro plain fronted (ie no cap or no wing) with show creasing more but best to use cream on the creases then wax to highlight the toe and heel area's

+1. I also use Saphir Mohogany on Vintage Cherry.

Nick is great to work with, and is prompt and helpful. I gotten 2 MTO from him in the last year and plan to order a Deco from him as well. 3 Month is on the low end for MTOs. Mine took about 4 months, they are worth the wait however.

I got a pair of boots that took about 9 months. Nick gets a lot of emails, I'm sure, so if you don't get an answer in a few days just send him another. This happened only once when he had some personal downtime, I think.
