New Russian Reindeer Accessories!

New G.J. Cleverly Russian reindeer accessories are now available at The Hanger Project!

On December 10th 1786, the Catharina von Flensburg ship, carrying a cargo of hemp and leather from the Russian port of St. Petersburg to the independent republic of Genoa in the Mediterranean, was lost in a storm off the coast of Cornwall in the English Channel. And there the ship and its cargo remained for more than 200 years until – in 1973 – it was discovered by the members of an English diving club.  Remarkably preserved, due to the hides' long slumber buried in the mud of the Channel, they have gradually been recovered (in small numbers and at some degree of risk) from the icy waters in the years since.

 

 

Originally cured in baths of rye flour as well as willow and birch liquor, and then soaked in seal oil before being hand embossed with a cross-hatch design, the hides are currently available to only a limited number of English craftsmen who restore the leather to its original condition and then use it to make small leather goods. The Hanger Project is one of the few retailers of these fine accessories in the United States and we encourage you to review our newest collection, which ranges from wallets to multipurpose cases.

@kirbya Is it not possible to ship to Germany? I tried on the UK website, but the only shipping possible is to the UK.

Is Saphir Sole Guard basically just vegetable oil? It looks like the same stuff I use to cook, and in fact I've just applied some 100% vegetable oil from the grocery store to my leather soles. A friend of mine and I are discussing whether it's actually "specially formulated" or just marketing nonsense to part a fool from his money. I mean, it does say 100% vegetable oil on it, and certainly wouldn't be the first time a basic good is sold for a different function at substantially higher margins. 

 

I told my friend I would taste them both of I had Sole Guard. Any thoughts? :satisfied: But actually, if you don't mind smelling whatever vegetable oil you normally use and the sole guard, it would be really informative. Thanks in advance!

Just use neatsfoot oil. Vegetable oil will go rancid.

I've recently purchased Saphir Sole Guard and do probably fall into the "part a fool from his money" catagory, however what I have noticed since starting to use Sole Guard is that nothing seems to get through to the sole, when I get back home and scrape my shoes on the door mat to get rid of excess dirt & moisture I've noticed just how much extra there is left on the mat which previously would have penetrated the soul.

I'm a happy soul (get it?!) currently with my purchase as you don't need to use much or even after every use so should make my £12.60 purchase last (get it?!) a while

 

God, I'm on top form today!

 

Regards

 

Carl.

I had an opportunity to reach out to Saphir via my back channels, and this is what they told me.
Quote:
100% natural vegetable oil, from selected components used in pharmacy & cosmetic industries.
This product has been elaborated by our laboratories in collaboration with the biggest shoe makers to solve water penetration and preservation of leather outsoles.
Even the best leather outsole coming from more than 6 months tanned cow skin, need to reinforce their fibers to avoid early wearing & protection against water, salt…
The product is non slippery & doesn’t mark the floor.

In other words, as the Saphir Medaille d’Or Polish, contains several waxes to make the best formulation ever, the Sole Guard is not just olive oil from a tree in Seville you would use to cook.It has been formulated among several essential oils used in cosmetology. The specific formulation is "secret," but I can tell you that the formulation is more than just olive or generic vegetable oil. Most importantly, the sole guard will not go rancid, and unlike Neatsfoot oil, it will not darken the sole, either.

Hope this helps differentiate the Sole Guard. I'll leave to you guys to decide if it's worth the money.

Cheers,

Kirby

can anyone comment on Cleverley's sizing, GG/EG size (0.5 down from US) or CJ size (1 down from US)? Also if I find 348 to be too narrow in toebox would Cleverley be automatically out (348 in 8.5E UK, 9E would work but it would be too long, GG MH71 in 9E UK is just barely enough room in toebox, TG73 is completely no go)?

The Cleverley's do fit narrow, so we recommend going up a size. Because of the cost of these shoes, we are allowing exchanges to find a correct fit. So, if you still want to try one, just place an order and let me know. All we ask is that you contact us immediately if you'd like to coordinate an exchange.

I'm trying to work on getting a set of trial shoes from Cleverley so we can send out two or three sizes at the same time for customers to determine their fit. The AC's really are incredible shoes - the quality of the construction is as fine as I've seen, and cleaner than even some of the best bespoke shoes.

Hi Kirby. Writing to ask if the shoes you are selling are marked D width or E width? The D width are super narrow and the E width are narrow/normal in my opinion. Are you also able to provide measurements for the shoes you have posted?

PS - some of the Cleverley shoes that you have listed are/were marked final sale...

These are all the normal width, not narrow. I've already confirmed that with Cleverley.

They are, technically, final sale, but we will allow exchanges / returns if they do not fit specifically for these shoes given that we understanding the constraints on sizing. They just have to be requested immediately.

That sounds really fair Kirby. How about posting of outsole LxW and insole length?
