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

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

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?

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.
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.
