Thanks all![/quote

Have you every experienced any issues with the polish effecting the antique?

I haven't since the antiquing happens a layer or two down. You'd really have to scrub to mess it up.

I had a pair of lightly antiqued Saint Crispins once that I ruined with a bit too much Saphir Reno, and then ruined it some more with Lexol cleaner. Lesson learned: use a minimal amount of both products, otherwise you'll be sending your shoes back to the manufacturer for repair.

Wow if I ruined a pair of st.crispin s someone would have to take my laces, yikes.

Very nice, Nore.

Will EG just refinish the uppers or darken a lighter to a darker?

Hmmm - let me be more specific: for the Inverness, do you use Mahogany or Burgundy/Bordeaux?

 

And your new avatar is even more ridiculously mesmerizing than the last one.

Some great deals at LSBH. Just ordered a Holborn in antique hazel from Bryan for $625.00. He was great to deal with. Not sure how much they have left on sale.

Took advantage of that sale this year, myself. Missed out on last year. Snagged myself some antique Russian reindeer (GJC, though, not EG). Just arrived today icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I wanted something sleeker than the 202, which is why I went with the 82. Seems like a happy medium.

Nothing wrong with the 82. I have a few models on that last too. Let us know how they turn out ....

Would like some help with EG MTO options. I placed an order for a pair of Galway at Edwards of Manchester but they don't answer my questions. Probably to much to do.

What is my opinions regarding lining color, welt, eylet color and how's fully lined compare to unlined?

Other tips with EG MTO?

Thanks!
