I have the Filson field satchel and I use Hubbards shoe drubbing about twice a year. Kabert, I also use black "sole dressing" to touch up the corners. Bic
Thanks all. So I have have to drubb and dress my attache case regularly. I got it.
When I was younger, I over-drubbed my Filson field satchel and it was too greasy.....Unfortunately, the oils stained the tan trench coat I wore in those days. I now sparingly apply a bit of drubbing on the first day of a long business holiday to let the oils work their way into the leather. I purchased a leather gladstone bag from a British shop a few years ago, and they included a tin of bee's wax with the order. Â Perhaps you may consider applying a slight brushing of this wax. Â Some folks also recommend "leather food." I have never tried it, though. Bic
