Many thanks, we found it a couple of days ago in the archives. The tone of the letter sounds more like 1927 than 1977 and I hope to goodness that we got it right. We must find the follow up and see whether Mr Cleverley managed to remove the effects of the saddle soap.

My wife would kill me if I put shoes and polishes next to the wine and cheese on the table...

At least you have a wife, I just have my shoes.
And my wine.
And almost no more cheese.

She complaints that I treat my shoes better than I treat her. And she calls my shoes my mistresses...

But then she refuse to use Saphir for skincare...

Brunello and cheese, great combo!  Now I'm thirsty.  And it's almost dinner time here...

Hey everyone, just a quick question: it started raining when I was wearing these shoes and when I got home I just wiped them off and let them dry overnight, now there are some white/lighter spots on the toe cap, most obvious on the right shoe even though it's somewhat hard to see in the picture. I'm wondering what I should do to mitigate this? Just a simple cream and buff?

To be honest I realy wouldn't worry about it. Shoes are items of everyday use and they will get stains and scuffs, thats just the way it is.
Just polish them with some wax and embrace the fact that signs of use this this will eventually lead to a lovely natural patina.

+1. Let them age gracefully.

Here's a pair of '08 C&J's that have seen lot of use & abuse. Bars, nightclubs, rainy days, stairs, pavements and even a swimming pool have all left their marks.
I don't mind and actually like the look of it.
