Thank you uncle.
But this sparked a question:
With my lower grade shoes: like Loakes and Allen Edmonds, and they are all full grain finish, not correct grain bookbinder finish; but I can easily get mirror shine finish on them with just one layer of polish and buffing, I don't bother with renovateur on them yet.
However, with my Tricker's and Alfred Sargents, which cost nearly double, and I put a lot of more care into them, like wipe, reno, polish and buffing, but I just can't get to mirror shine.... after 3 layers polish, quite depressing for me after my shoe care sessions.
Anyone else experienced this? And can someone shed light on this?
I believe there is a middle area in types of leather which is a corrected-full grain finish, if that makes sense? One of the heavy hitters posted about it some time ago, that the amount of first grade black calf needed to produce all the new shoes for companies like AE or Loake out be outrageous, and that they suspected that it is still corrected to some degree, which would make it easier to shine. I apologise I can't reference the post, however.
