It is supposed to be very good. I tend to only use neutral if/when I use it (which is quite rare)

When do you know when to use the neutral, when your boots look dull?

I'll have to remember this next time I have to go to court or something ;) 

 

I take it you are an attorney?

Looking at grabbing some Alden Boots, would love these http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/footwear/products/alden-for-epaulet-brixton-boot-madison-oxblood,

Any others like that, I love the brogue and the Oxblood, and around the same price. I'm about a 10.5US in Newbalance, 9.5F UK in Loake and a 10F UK in Grenson

Was wondering if anyone has both the tan suede PTBs and the Suede LWB?  Not sure if it would be too similar or redundant to have both.  The snuff suede LWB is seriously growing on me. nod%5B1%5D.gif

I have a normal pair of brown cordovan that is (should be) a medium brown.  I ended up getting Saphir Reno and also the natural Cordovan Cream.  Absolutely fantastic.  Just talking about it makes me want to polish them again tonight, which I will probably do.

 

I also have the navy polish for my black shoes (calf) from Saphir, another top notch product.  Use very sparingly, I ruined a pair of laces because that polish STICKS.

FYI - I know there has been a lot of interest in the Ralph Lauren cordovan Marlows from Alden fans - they are currently on sale (25% off) in store and online for those interested.

I highly recommend it. I alternate Alden brown paste wax and the Saphir Dark Brown Cordovan cream on my cigars. The cordovan cream adds more moisture.

+1 on the RL Marlow wingtips. They'll just make you appreciate your Alden LWB's even more.

This makes them $637 which is in line or cheaper than Alden

To care for them I plan on just brushing them once in a while. Is there anything else anybody would recommend?
What is the leather? For CXL I use Saphir Renovateur. It does not seem to mess up the contrast stitch. If the contrast stitch is important to you then get a separate brush for lighter shades or just use a clean rag. What sole do you have on them? Commando, cork, crepe....other?
