ill have to order some renomat right now. is there some place that sells it with free shipping? paul evans has it with free shipping but i cant check out.
I think you have it backwards, friend.
once i renomat it and get the real color ill reevaluate i may try black cordovan cream first to darken it. i like the darker look.
For something a little different... I've seen a few versions of the Indy/City Moc shoe (double leather sole, lined, etc.), but the BB version with the low unlined toe and flex sole is about perfect...bring on summer.

Are they Alden for BB?
I would also reach for my nsts during emergency evacuation. My wife is to secure color 4, and my daughter the ravellos. We may consider a second child for cigars' sake.
Just picked up a pair of BB color #8 wingtips on ebay. Looked pretty good when I got them. Before and after (deer bone, reno, light wax and buff) attached.
Few quick questions....
1) one of the shoes looks sunfaded. I tried to darken it up with a little black paste wax but its still clearly a different.
2) i usually reno my shoes till nothing more comes off on the cloth (grime, polish etc). this shoes i worked on for half an hour with multiple coats of reno all over and still couldnt get all the cloth to come off clean. should i try something else?
im loving the pantina on these shoes.
Neet's Foot Oil will darken them somewhat.
MrDV and RTP,
Great minds think alike. I'll be another Ravello Fellow tonight, going casual with the chukkas.
Happy new year to all!
