if it matters, i have three pairs of shell shoes: black, #8 and cigar. thanks!

question #1- it is personal preference one brush for all colors or a separate brush for each color
question #2-no differences between light color brush or black color brush as long as you brush vigorously

I have 2 brushes. One for Whiskey/Ravello and another for all other colors. Noticed a little wax transfer on a pair of Whiskeys once and decided It's probably best not to use the same brush for all colors.

It takes almost a week to get from the depot in Hawaii to the California shore. 2 weeks total to Toronto plain.gif

Maiden voyage: Alden x Epaulet Cigar "Brixton" WT boot. [Mac break-in day 1. Carpets only].
Already seeing some nice variations in the Cigar Shell.
Dare I say, Cigar is the new Ravello !

Newb question - I really like these Indy Shoe in Natural Chromexcel, but am wondering if they are casual enough to be worn with jeans?
