Which G&G are those?
The ones Ethan is polishing in the beginning of the clip is "Oxford".
I've heard of using neutral cream polish to make the soles last longer (and possibly look better), but I've never seen it done with wax before.
Well Actually I enjoy polish my shoes and can sit for hours with a bottle of makers mark making it a fun day. But you are right it really stinks up the place. But open all windows for 3-4 hours when i'm done there should be no problem :)
