In most cases manufacturers use polish to get the finish where it needs to be and follow up with a sealer type coat.

Is this process okay for shell?

IMO it should be fine provided the products (e.g. Cordovan Creme, Reno, VSC, etc...)  you're using are made for use on shell cordovan.

^ seems like that's a pretty standard makeup now, I've seen it at Ben Silver and I think TSM. I like it a lot, looks great.

Thanks a lot for the PSA! Managed to grab one for myself too. Let's hope it comes!

I think that is a fantastic make-up.  Shoe Mart offers it - where I got mine from -- Ben Silver offers it in tan suede as well as snuff suede, and I am sure others, in addition to Alden DC, offer it too.

I personally don't think a black LHS would be useful.

Not a fan of the black LHS, but if you're in the market for a black loafer, I recommend the JL Lopez.  It's pricey, but so worth it :slayer:
