I can tell you worked your @ss off on that job. I like that sort of a shine for the toebox treatment, but when performed on the entire uppers, it gets a "corrected grain feel", I think. If you like that mirror shine, though, to heck with what others think.

I know what you mean. It's tough to see in the image but the toebox is twice as shiny as the rest of the upper. I worked hard on the transition between mirror shine and standard shine. It's easy to get a real noticeable line where the mirror hits the non-mirror. For once, I transitioned it fairly well.

However, when the transition is more abrupt, it doesn't look right either. Like these, I needed another thin coat of wax on that transition point.

Actually, a question while we have some new kids in the playground (MoL's Carminas). Whats the history of an austerity shoe? To me, I always thought it was a super formal detail, something really clean and unembellished with a medallion, etc. Here we see it on suede - and while I like the way it looks, I am thinking it is contradictory to my belief that it was only on formal shoes (i.e. calf). Am I way off the mark with this?

AFAIK the austerity was a stylistic response to scarcity of leather -  brogues requiring the extra layer  -  during the second world war IIRC

dunno about whether it's kosher on suede.  don't see why not

Those be snazzy! It's boots like those that make me wish I lived in a colder climate.

Excellent those EG for Hardy Amies. I would wear them with some silm fitted, contrasting coloured pants (or lighter grey). Such an understatement with grey flannels.
