This came up a while back; there has been some issues importing to the US. I believe that Hanger Project should have it, as well as Invulner, by the end of the month.

Spoke to soon about PS replacing them, since they were on sale and they are no longer in stock, they want to give me a credit for the purchase price. Oh well, until the next sale! I am not spending an additional $400 to replace them.

I need to locate the address to PS Corporate, that is crazy not to offer a comparable replacement.

Anyone? If there's a thread that's better suited for this question I would appreciate a recommendation on that instead.

I think they're similar. I recall reading in this thread someone had explained the differences. You may want to search in this thread to see if you could find that post.

Google is your friend

 Montana Pitch Blend, which differs from Obenauf’s LP in that it contains mink oil and amber pine pitch. I haven’t used any of these, but Leffot tells me that Montana Pitch Blend leaves less of a waxy feel and is less likely to darken leather.

Wouldn't a lighter polish lighten my shoes? Or will th wax polish even it out then?

I don't think it will lighten the shoe. It can't get lighter from the cream as the cream does not take any color away.

Hello gents,

 

Can anyone tell me what I might have done to cause the spots on my RM Williams?

 

The boots are about ten years old and have until recently been exposed to nothing more than RM Williams leather conditioner and RM Williams chestnut polish.  Apart from getting darker I've never had any problems.

 

I recently applied some Renovateur (after having had great success with both that and some cream polish on my black RMs) and I then applied brown Church's wax.

 

This is when the trouble started.  No matter what I do now I can't seem to avoid getting these spots.  I live in a very dry climate so it's not from rain, or salt for that matter.  And I'm pretty sure it's not from my poor aim either.

 

I have ordered some Renomat and some brown (in a suitable shade) cream and intend starting over, but can any of you give me a clue as to why this might have happened?

 

Cheers,

 

James

Can someone give some quick insight as to the difference of cirage and glaçage.

From what I gather, glaçage is what we know as a spit shine or mirror shine in english, however I have heard that the cirage is an art in itself.  At first, I was under the impression that cirage was the use of cream polish rather than wax polish, but all of the videos I have seen on it show people applying wax, though just with much less of a finish relative to a spitshine.  

That just had me curious as to why people call it an art in itself when compared to the glaçage.
