I'd like to know what are your opinions what's the best color used on croc/gator?

 

I'm buying an alligator leather billfold wallet, a belt.

You don't need to use any polish . All you need is Dyo Reptile conditioner or something similar.

Am I missing something? You should not be using anything with colors? Creams and cleaners will be white or neutral.

I think you have the people on this thread a bit confused. Are you asking what color to get a croc/gator shoe/wallet/belt/etc in? Or what color to use when cleaning it?

Yes I believe I have made everyone confused and I am truly  apologize.

 

I'm not exactly sure what you meant by " What color to use when cleaning " but my question involves your best opinions on what color to get in alligator leather leather goods. I'm buying an alligator leather bill-fold wallet but unsure what color to pick. I'm looking for a patina for when I use this wallet for many years so I'm uncertain on what color will patina and not.

Cognac with high glaze finish looks great years in.
