buy some deglazer from fiebings or angelus. these are designed exactly for this purpose so you dont have to dilute acetone or whatever else is suggested.

Went to Zee's recently after seeing some of the photos posted here. I was hoping to get a pair made but must admit that I was quite turned off by the quality of the leather and workmanship. The price quoted was HKD1,500 for the French calf-skin and HKD1,350 for suede. And it should take 4 days.

Zee was very nice and friendly and willing to work with you on any pattern. He had a good selection of leather in term of color. With the sample leather that he showed me, there must have been between 8-10 shades (including blue).

The quality of the leather was not very good in my mind (I wasn't expecting EG quality to begin with; but I think his is slightly below Loake). The workmanship (especially the punched holes and brogue pattern) was also not very good. I was quite disappointed, especially after comparing to the pictures of the shoes posted by Benjamin here, the sample shoes that he showed me look very different in term of quality. I am not sure if it's mainly because of the polishing technique but, if it is, then it might be worth a try to order a pair and do the polishing yourself.

Picked up a pair of "Gucci Loafers" from Zee this week. This is my second buy from Zee and the fit this time is spot on. I'm very happy with these.

i am sure the shoes are great but why on earth post thumbnails sized pictures?
post #195 of 472
Because I don't know how to post larger ones that's why. Doesn't appear to be a way on the site so I'm stuck with thumbnails. Any assistance would be gratefully received.
