Ha, sure - with enough time and effort.

Great peccary shoes!

I gave some attention to a beloved pair of cordovan shoes that I've decided will be better off in a new home, so I tried to get them back to show form.

This is the before I got started, mostly just dusty. .


This is after the application of a cleaner/conditioner.


I buffed them after a few hours but the surface was still sticky so I let them sit over night and buffed them again to bring out this shine.


This is after the application/buffing of Saphir Cordovan Cremé.


Outside with a few other pairs.

Hi, is $30 shipping for one jacket hanger to Canada pretty standard?  Is there an order amount for hangers to Canada that would qualify me for cheaper shipping?  Thank you.

Could you not buy something, a lot cheaper, at home?

I've only been able to find suit jacket hangers at my local shops that accommodate size 42+, while I'm after something for a 38.

Before

 

 

This pair hasn't been worn all that much but, as is common for mirror-finished toe caps, the mirror finish dulled and has also picked up some nicks and scratches. So, today it's time for a bit of a refresh using the same mirror shine techniques that I have previously described...

I have a shoe shine Sunday question: I was trying to get some shine on the toes of my grain boots, I think I over did the wax polish and actually lost some of the shine on the left boot. What can I do? Does the wax just need to dry longer?

I'd like them to look like this:

I'd like them to look like this:

 

Looks like you may have just overdone it with the amount of wax or, most likely, the pressure when applying the wax.  Brush/buff the existing wax off after drying and then continue with very thin applications of wax with light pressure, allowing each layer to dry followed by brushing/buffing.

@hangerproject Do you guys plan to restock these slippers? Was looking for a size L in the brown suede. Thanks!

So I have these Alden boots from LS that were gifted to me a few years ago.  They were in need of some love and attention so I took a stab at them with what I have.

 

Before

 

 

During - Left boot was brushed after I applied some Reno, the right boot was not brushed after it was Reno'd.

 

 

After - Boots were treated with Saphir Black paste and then buffed, oh and they got new laces.

 

Not sure what I could do to these to give them a nice shine.

Would wax work on these?  Or do I just keep at it with the brush and buff?

 

Oh and sorry for the lousy pics, the light in that room is garbage.
