Really?

Woodlore websites says:

Composition
Aromatic cedar is made up of white and red sections of wood. The white section is referred to as sapwood. The red wood is called heartwood, as it contains the aromatic oils. Woodlore products include at least 75% heartwood for the greatest aromatic benefit. After one year, a light sanding with a medium sandpaper restores the aromatic properties.

Benefits
Cedar shoe trees, hangers, blocks and shapes play a vital role in protecting fine shoes and clothing. Aromatic cedar helps to repel moths and other insects. Because we don't coat our cedar with varnishes or lacquers, our all-natural shoe trees absorb moisture from footwear. Aromatic cedar also deodorizes with a forest-fresh scent.

There are many different types of cedar - perhaps Coxy is confusing the very expensive Western US or Australian Red cedar he has recently shelled out a shitload on for cladding his house with the more common Eastern Red or Spanish cedar, which is used for shoe trees, wardrobe linings and mothballs.

I'd certainly be interested in a few pairs. If you'd rather sell them all in one go, I'll take all of them for the sake of convenience (depending on pricing).

 

I'll send you a PM.

I know its always hard to gauge as lots of things can be involved but damn katrinas is a bit on the pricey side for suit alterations.

On the topic of shoe trees, I noticed that David Jones had the florsheim full cedar trees in stock again, as opposed to the ones with the plastic heel that had replaced them previously (this was Melb CBD store).  Muji also do decent cedar trees for the same price as the florsheims ($40).

Yes, they use Eastern Red, which Western Red mocks and pillories.

Missed out on a Herringbone 36s unstructured jacket on eBay this morning, sold at 99c plus 15 bucks postage (1 bid). I simply forgot to bid even though I got a reminder 15mins before...

What's annoying is that I forgot to bid in its first listing!!

Anyone here got a smug story to now tell?

I've always been keen to understand the science of how wood shoe trees absorb the moisture from shoes and yet don't form a moisture equilibrium with the surrounding atmosphere/room.

Yes not to mention Western Red is always condemning the less than glowing human rights record of Eastern Red, to which Eastern Red replies it shouldn't be judged by Western Red values.
