My first contribution to Patina Sunday.  Only a year old, bu these Cigar LWBs have a nice patina to them...

Is it typical to go up a width when going from a Hampton to a Leydon? I understand that the Leydon is a bit narrower than some lasts.

I believe the leydon is actually wider than the hampton, based on:

Here is my contribution towards sustaining "Patina Sunday"

 

Year old Cigar LHS

 

Might not be so much of a patina that they have developed, rather a need for a dose of cream and a good brushing!

I saw an Alden employee at the Alden SF shop using this on shell cordovan in the store so I imagine it's okay.

One thing that concerns me with both Saphir Reno and Venetian, is that some dye seems to come off on your cloth each time you use it. Use a white cloth and you can really notice it.  

Maybe the Alden boot cream is better?

Alden's boot creams are not designed for shell, whether in neutral or any of their colors. The fact an Alden employee was using it for shell is truly confusing. I have all of their boot creams and use them all, but exclusively on calf.

Saphir Reno and Venetian are rare in that they are recommended for calf and shell. I use both of those products as well, but I prefer reno.

In my experience, the Leydon last fits smaller - shorter and more snug - than the Hampton. nod[1].gif

I know, perplexing. Their shell shoes on display look great too.

I know black shell does not get a lot of love around here but this is a style that I think looks fantastic in black shell...

 

This price is insane. This is like gasoline after hurricane Katrina.
