Thanks uncle. Very excited to get some wear this week. Funny it's been very mild here in NYC. Have a good weekend.

Anyway, not my business.

 

Maybe because they are worn, not closeted or brand new out of box shots.

+1.  But the MTOs created by PC/JBrown looks very good, with UK/French styling and Mitteleuropa construction.

First time in a pair of Barker Blacks I scored. Fit like bespoke = snug but very comfortable.

The damage around the heels area

Need suggestion....

My oxblood vass (Calf) has a cut on the heel from an office chair... frown.gif

I know that there aren't much to do about it...yet I was wondering if I use Saphir product such as the paste, wax and renovator will these help cover the cut on the leather?

thanks

cream polish.

If it bothers you enough, before polishing it over, you might see whether your cobbler can glue it back down. You will probably still need to disguise the cut with polish, but the lifted edges might get worse if not fixed in place.

Considering that the cut is on the heel, if you are extremely careful you could close this cut up to near invisibility with a little super glue and a bone folder or a very smooth piece of plastic ...even a teaspoon might work. Apply the SG very sparingly inside the cut...I'd use a dressmaker's pin...and then push the cut flat and the loose edge towards closure with the bone.

Again, be meticulous and sparing. You can always try again but if you get excess squeezing out of the cut the chances are slim that you will be able to remove it. Or be able to polish over it.

If it works, this will be a near-as-nevermind permanent repair

Vass shoes deserve a better office chair

They are G&G, but they are not through Bespoke England (whom I still have only heard good things about). I ordered these directly from G&G at a trunk show. Tony was the one who suggested the mole suede and I am very grateful for his input.
