Try not to overcomplicate the procedure.  It really is as a simple as:

 

Wipe down with damp cloth

Brush rigorously with horsehair brush

Buff with cloth

 

Use paste wax only when necessary (to cover up a scuff or add color to a faded pair)

 

A lot of people add unnecessary steps.  Uncle Mac has great looking shoes that he has owned for years/decades that have never seen wax/polish/product.

Agreed. Thanks again for the LS Jumpers. Just waiting for sub 90° temp and sub 100% humidity to start wearing them again.

Tellason 16.5oz Ankara.

I am not a fan of tassels but I think I can see myself wearing these.  Nice catch Mr. Guy!

When buying boots such as the naval boot by leffot, have forum members found the need to go with their usual barrie size or did you find the need to go a half size up from barrie. Request Naval boot owners sharing their experience on sizing. Thank you.

I exchanged my Naval boots that were ordered in my barrie size for a pair in my tts which is a half size up from my barrie(LWB) size. I've read on this thread that some people do and some people don't have to go tts. It's a matter of personal preference and which boot size works better for you.

Well said. It seems that a small number/percentage of folks need to size up to TTS for Barrie *boots*, but its very rare to hear the need to go TTS with Barrie *shoes*.

I always wear a half size down from my measured/brannock size in Barrie shoes (PTB, LWB). However like you, I sized up to TTS for my Barrie lasted jcrew PCT boots.

The lesson here is that the only foolproof sizing advice is to try them on.
