Shawnc- I use that brush for #8 and black shell. I do not have any polish on any of my shells yet, but once I do I have dedicated brushes for polish for each color waiting. I have 3 non-polish brushes. Dark, light for my whiskey and a brown for my dark browns.
Wow, no polish. I just can't get the gleam I want from just water and brushing. You must have the magic touch. Thanks for the info. Quite informative.
Does anyone have any real life shots of an Alden City-Moc? I've been long thinking about a good casual shoe and was almost going to pull the trigger on a pair of Epaulet Carmina shortwings in Chromexcel but missed out. I've since stumbled upon the Alden City-Moc at Leffot, coincidentally in natural Chromexcel, and am thinking it might be the one. But, I can't seem to find any real life pics of city-moc model in general, let alone the Leffot cxl specifically.
If you've got some real-world city-moc model pics, I'd love to see them!
(edit: in case you thought it a weird question for late October, I should note that I'm in central Florida where styles like this are virtually year round)
Alden City-Moc at Leffot:
The Epaulet Carmina shortwing:
Both are nice models, but I would consider the Alden model considerably more casual, and one that would better suit your intended uses.
