Those Alfred Sargent Miller's waists are bevelled. Geez, they look like they're wearing corsets! HAWT icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

So what's everybody using as sole dressing.  All I've done is use Reno on all parts so far.  I thought I read AE Chili to maintain the antique edge.  Is there such a thing as Neutral Edge dressing?

Yup, AE has natural edge. I use it and it is pretty much transparent (but has a cloudy concentration). Works fine.

I'd go with chili for the antique edge... looks great!

thats a great price. the 325 last is an ideal candidate for the e width. half size down and e width is ideal (for both the ptb and wingtip blucher)

I would be interested in an E width Marlow PTB, but I already have the Alden cigar PTB, so not really necessary...

I use Allen Edmond's brown edge dressing on my Marlow wingtips

My feet is short , narrow heel and wide toe. And I struggle with c&j . Out of all marlows and c&j this PTB is the best fit for me. A good fitting pair of shoe really makes a difference.Going 1/2 size down would be good for someone with narrow feet. Honestly with EE width I go 1/2 size up most of time.

Question for all of you who have dark brown cordovan, are your shoes getting darker over time or lighter ? I got a pair of penny Marlows for a discounted price, which I think was a floor model because one shoe had a sticker and price on it. That particular shoe is much darker, most significant in certain angles. Any advice on how to fix this ? I gave both of them a dose of venetian so far. I ordered saphir dark brown cordovan cream, good move?

Here are pics:

Cream, will always tend to darken a shoe or boot over time more as it will soak into the pores of the leather more than wax. How much of this will take place on Cordovan I'm just not certain as I haven't had mine long enough to know.

 

So far all I have done to mine is brush and Reno and brush. I don't plan on using any polish until I absolutely have to.

 

That does look rather dark on the one, the best you may be able to do is try to darken the other one to match it. I would post this in the shoe care thread and see what they recommend.

mikeyc29, your ankles scared me there...

good move with the dark brown creme, that will definitely darken the shell. ive used it on my shoes and with good results. you could also try leaving the darker shoe out in the sun for weeks at a time and they will lighten up.
