As far as we are concerned, in this case as well, patience is a virtue.

We hope everyone enjoyed a great couple of days during Christmas. During this week, our store is closed on Friday the 1st of January, so please allow some extra time for us to respond to questions on SF or via e-mail.

 

Happy New (Shoe)Year! 

:cheers:

I just figure this way it's less product, but what do I know.
You are correct I normally just use sapphire neutral cream & wax

Sounds to me like it's high time you did, in fact I highly recommend it.​

 

I give my blessing, go ahead order one. You certainly deserve one.

 

 

Cheers

Very gingerly popping my Skoak cherry (a few pocket squares), and I have to say I've found myself exceedingly impressed by their attentive customer service thus far, especially considering the nominal cost of the purchase.

 

Here's hoping the expected delivery date hits the mark. If so, I know they'll be getting *cringe* multiple thousands worth of my business in the future!

A couple weeks ago I ordered a pocket square and a shoe brush on a Tuesday night. I got an email the next day saying that the package will arrive the following Monday. To my surprise, it was waiting for me when I got home that Friday. You can't beat that.

Thanks to Skoaktiebolaget! Just got my pair of EB cordovan shell this noon, the workmanship of the shoes is outstanding, but i gonna do some polishing work, the shell seems not in it's best condition. My first EB, can't wait to join in the GMTO of the black oxford captoe!

Thank you for sharing. Cordovan often only requires some light buffing to improve the finish. Enjoy your new shoes.

Thanks for reminding me this, sometimes I use the abbeyhorn deer bone to nurish the shell, most of the time, as what you said, light buffing is enough
