    Sinatra + deco = Cooper, if I'm not mistaken. Cooper is a pretty popular makeup by deco standards (what with all the stingray and what-not), so worth looking out for IRL - about the best chance of seeing your 100% in the flesh.

    Nice. Which one do you have, Cooper or Bowlly? Both? The Bowlly is my G&G grail shoe.

    G . . . . this derision of the deco Burnham is completely uncalled for. They may be the most awesome version yet

    Going to have to agree. That Burnham is sleek as all hell. Perfect for a chelsea.

    I know. I've committed blasphemy and preached heresy. Satan made me say it.

    On the flip side, as penance I have to buy more deco. To ... errr - teach me a lesson.

    Agree, great shine. What do you guys use for vintage cherry? I know someone mentioned neutral. Anyone use any colored cream or wax?

    Saphir's mahogany is what I've used for vintage cherry.

    However, I remember being told to every so often use a tan polish on vintage cherry. Not tried it yet (too much of a wimp) but can imagine it brings out different hues.

    Vintage Cherry is perhaps my favorite G&G color. Sure all the shades of brown are great, but the Cherry is special.
