    The two problems you come across here are sloped should as mentioned and the protrusion of the clavical. I still have problems with the latter if I go too unstructured, although I can avoid alot of padding there by keeping good structure sans padding.

    As an aside, I think the talioring practice here of doing the best for what you have vs getting postural things right is such as waste.

    You can find Collonil at 3 different shoe repair shops within 5 mins walk:

    1. Steve's Shoe Repairs at 338 Pitt St (Telstra building);
    2. Shoe repair shop near JB Hifi in World Square;
    3. Shoe repair shop on Castlereagh Street (just before DJ mens), between Park and Market St.

    The last time I walk by, Coombs was closed for renovation. I will be going past again today to see whether they have reopened.

    And lastly, Saphir products. Valmour is cheapest (and each product gets cheaper with more orders) but postage of 40 Euro is a biatch. If all Sydney members wish to pool to do a mass order, will save a lot of money. I am after another jar of Renovateur and some light brown polish. I am happy to do the ordering, and I have an office in the CBD on Castlereagh Street where you can come pick up your orders.

    ^ If your mass groupbuy gets more takers, let me know. I have never tried Saphir before but would like to have a go :)

    How many wears?

    I have a pair of dark brown captoe bluchers. Debating whether I should put in metal toe protectors.

    Last chance for anyone who wants my BNWT Kent Wang Navy Polo in XL for $50, otherwise it's going back tomorrow.

    I'd also be interested in Saphir stuff btw.

    Cloakroom aren't stocking Renovateur for some strange reason, and only the smaller sized tins of polish, sigh.

    Gad I just saw some blue suede chukkas in a Rivers catalog for $28. Not even we could bitch about that kind of pricing.

    Just checked out the Artiolis in Harrolds. Prices around $2400.[​IMG]

    Not Japanese Yen. Australian Yen.

    Also went by Coombs, still closed for renovations. You can get Collonil at Brices at 155 Castlereagh St, and have a perv at the Cartier Pasha in the windows of the nearby antique shop.

    Lastly, the Saphir pricing is lowest with 6 units of each product item . Eg 6 Renovator 75 mL, or 6 Pate de Lux of the same color and same amount.

    Finally, if we get an order for 2000 Euro, shipping is free. I highly doubt it, and hey, stranger things have happened.

    PM me with your orders if interested.

    Too bad they have ugly soles. The better looking ones are still $60...


    I am still looking for a nice parka for a good price and also pair of suede driving mocs (leather lacing or tassels prefered) in a deep wine/burgundy colour....
