I searched my drawer this morning for a pair of yellowers that I knew were there, to no avail.

I presume the missus ruled them out some time ago...

just occurred to me, i played my ace already!

No matter, week to go. Have a reserve that'll have to work if nothing new comes along.

I'll either have to get creative or go for a double look next Monday, F in Law's funeral at two. He'd have liked that though, he was always the dandy!

To all above - I had no prior experience dyeing shoes. The Trickers were very light. The original color was acorn, but I have also seen it referenced as "burnished." It was extremely light almost a blonde color. I tried darkening it to "cognac" with polish, but the results were uneven and I was still unhappy with them. Finally, I saw a blog post by a friend who had dyed a pair of shoes, and then saw the results from RogerP's EG double monks, and thought I should give it a try. The acetone takes the leather down to the tanned hide, it does not remove the dyes added during tanning. If you look at the videos available on YouTube, you will see that you must dye darker not lighter. The shoes turned out better than I thought they would. In the end, it was pretty easy.

When my middle daughter was very young she would try to get "double matches." I think she would be proud.
