Ok, Sapphire products are the ducks nuts of shoe car, what else is there on offer? A bit further down the food chain which is SF approved shog[1].gif

I don't know whats SF approved and if i did I might ....

But I use Collinol Creams instead of Saphir - and I have a plastic storage box full of Saphir stuff I get given as a gift from a mate who travels to France a lot.

Thanks FXH, Collinol creams, l will look it up. I recently snapped a pair of CJ off the bay for a song. Hope you're dragging out the Little Creatures today, they have a fantastic new Single Batch release in the pint stubby "Shepherds Delight"...

I know what you mean. I got my Saphir delivery from Double Monk yesterday. The tubs are tiny :(

 

I've wanted to be cheap and try kiwi, but I've heard so many horror stories about them.

The family went there because the wife got a job lecturing at Chuky. Had a nice little weatherboard in Gurwood St a couple of blocks down from Bosnia (local landmark).

ps I remember the couple of Gay (shock horror ) arts lectures used to joke about The Backdoor Cafe at GB's

I remember the streets of Kinkade and Slocum near the racetrack.

I used to go to Albury to get threads

I use kiwi's parade gloss and have no trouble at all maintaining a mirror shine. I wouldn't use any other product from kiwi though, every one of the brown polishes seems to turn shoes a red-ish colour.

You don't need to use much polish for a mirror shine. I have Alden and C&J wax polishes and they last a long time.

My Cobbler says not to go near my RMWs with it.

Hello, from Hong Kong!
Any awesome places to shop? Walked past Brunello Cucinelli store, didn't bother going in because its (quite) a bit out of my budget. Went into Massimo Dutti expecting half canvassed seems like all fused stuff, went out disappointed. Unlikely acquisition is a pair of h&m linen trousers for HK$149 which is a princely sum of ~AU$20. Will need to find places for decent shoes around ~AU$200 bracket.
