here is me asking about the saphir and dusting effect issue http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc/16290#post_8015306

here are pics after otter wax oil
steps:
1. wipe down with wet cloth
2. oil
3. brush with horse hair brush until light shine, not too much shine of course

have not sadly, but i imagine same dye and etc is used so that dusting effect may happen. if you open the little booklet i believe it even states to use something like Lexol for the leather...

do some more research and ask around more before doing anything. just please don't use saphir, i already took that hit and showed you the effects.

Hard to tell, but this is before and after of using Saphir on a CCP leather. Really brought back the "juicyness" and luster

I used this: https://www.hangerproject.com/saphir-nappa-leather-balm.html

Worked wonderfully, except it did darken the leather - it's back to black and the faded blue/brown are hardly visible, which is a bit of a bummer. Might be SLIGHTLY more matte than it was before. Leather is still pretty stiff, but looks and feels a lot more "juicy." Was starting to feel a bit dry to the touch. Would recommend for anything sensitive

Can't see the diff. in the pics, but whatever

right because saphir has some wax in it. which when worn and creasing happens will cause a dusting effect. this effect maybe less prominent on a jacket but take a look at your inner elbow area of the jacket after you wear it sometime there should be some dusting since thats the area that constantly bends as you move your arms.

Is the consensus that CORS is the best option for a high neck or scarstitch.

If you want smooth leather, yes. Otherwise, I think bison is ok too. Kangaroo might be too thin.

Buying multiple leathers in roo next year nod[1].gif

Okay, maybe just one but roo for warmer climates.

Surprised that is still around. Would have kopped if it didn't have the funky scent like the new ones.

Dear nicelynice and sinnedk,

 

Thank you both for helping me out here and sorry for the late reply but I recently lost a good friend so I haven't been around these corners for awhile.

 

nicelynine your 'before' and 'after' pics looks good and those links are nice to have but after reading your answer sinnedk, I'm just more confused right now? After this post I will go back and read your thread carefully and see if I can find the answers I'm looking for there.

 

*Jesus this is a tricky jungle to walk around in and I've had a lot of different creams throughout the years but non of it did it for me so hopefully I will track down the perfect care this time.

 

All other inputs are more than welcome.

Sinnedk, about your friend as his question about 'the best' ccp leather for scar and hi-neck I think it is a matter of taste and look. Personally I don't like any of the kangaroo jackets in that category that I've seen. All looks like paper and the fit seems out of proportion. Bison is a lot better and if he's looking for a more heavy and thick look he should definitely get that. I also think bison leather ages very beautifully. But for me there is really no doubt, cors is the core for me. The leather is just so fantastic and comfortable to wear. - Thicker than kangaroo and thinner than bison - the perfect leather wave for me! I have the standard cors-ptc hi-neck, a gloved cors-ptc hi-neck and the cors-ptc scarstitch - all in deep black horse leather - and I love them all!

 

To all styleforum members - may you have a wonderful weekend!
