Shoe Polishing Methods by Brift H and Maestro (Men's Ex Translation)

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,


Here are the translations from the latest Japanese MEN'S EX "Shoes Maintenance" issue. I'll try to add more pages over a week or two.
Please note that some Japanese phrases sound awkward translated

SHOE POLISHING METHODS by 2 Japanese shoeshiners

This first part is Hasegawa Yuya from BRIFT H
The second part is Matsumuro Shiniricho from MAESTRO

Very different styles.....

For a clearer version, enlarge and drag on to your desktop

ENJOY! fing02[1].gif

Click at the image (to "enlarge") , drag/save it on your desktop, and open it with your own image viewer. The file i uploaded is 300dpi, should be enough to read

Thanks. After it is saved, the file size for each page/image is only ~170k. frown.gif Still very hard to read.

Mirror polish using cream :o

 

p.s., for all those godly mirror polish with shoe cream skills, Mr. Matsumuro still wears shoes a size too big...

It is always a pleasure to see Japanese literature about shoes,. I was aware of the shoe construction manuals but had never seen these

 

As someone who has done a lot of personal experimentation in 'polishing' -not so much for a shine but for a 'patina creation/modification'- it is nice to see well documented detailed instructions even if i would do some things differently

 

Professionally, I interact with Japanese companies daily, concerning very technical wireless/internet issues and it is always nice to work with people with proper attention to detail, like tech specs etc.

 

Japanese 'specifications' are great from shoes to  4G networks
