Anyone with experience with antiquing / dyeing black cherry leather? I'm looking to turn my Gentleman Travelers to medium/dark brown, and I'm wondering whether deglazer / acetone will be enough to take the color off initially before dyeing.
I understand the desire to dye certain shoes depending on their original color, etc, but are you sure you want to dye your Black Cherry GTs?!?! I've gotten more compliments on those than all of my dress shoes combined! Fwiw, if you do go ahead with this, I think it might take quite a lot of deglazer to get that color out. Horween seems to have done a pretty good job with the leather on these.
