Thanks, Moo. You're in the Bay: any cobbler recommendations? About your cordovan refresh above— you buffed with only the brush, sans anything, for ~5-7 minutes, and then
applied polish and buffed again? Haven't seen that suggestion before. Does buffing without anything just remove old wax, or why'd you decide to do that? Beautiful loafers, btw. Rooster: I'm no expert, but I let things dry until the wax/polish coating looks dull, then buff it out. If I'm impatient, that's 3-5 minutes, but I've found the longer, ~15 minute waits give a better shine in the end.
