i bought some saphir pate de luxe med d'or Black shoe polish for my incoming (and hopefully not too large) AE Fifth Avenues from ebay! the saphir seems the most SF approved polish.
any aussie with experience with this??
bought it on ebay for $10 all up, shipped. can provide link if wanted...
Also bought some RM Williams Chestnut shoe polish for my craftsman. Used some dubbin brown polish but the colour had a dull brown/maroon look to it. Hopefully the RM stuff will get the patina back to how they looked new.
Speaking of my RM's, i wore them at uni last thursday and noticed 4 other pairs during the day (mix of black and chestnut craftsman and comfort c's). Wore them the next day in Perth and saw another 4 pairs (all black) with suits.
Tried the La Cordonerie Anglais (not sure how it's spelt) line from Harrolds for a while (Bee's Wax and all), and while that was quite good, it did not give me the shine that the Saphir did.
