    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That's a shame about the shrinkage. I suffer the same whenever I get out of a cold pool..

    I go for 6cm cuffs and no break, and have done so for about 3-4 years now. It's not to everyone's taste, but I like it for now.

    Received couple of colours (Natural, Black and Burgundy) in the Saphir Medaille D'Or Pate de Luxe today.

    Order arrived from A Fine Pair of Shoes in 2 weeks. Also order the Corgi socks and some flat shoe laces.

    For those of you still not converted, take it from someone who has polished his shoes for 30 years that this product is outstanding. I have several shoes from the Church's range from Herrings. Have never been entirely happy with the polish, they were always a bit 'flat' in their presentation. Friday night, at home chilling, I put the Saphir to work and all my shoes including some old C&Js, and Lobb's have come back to life and look fantastic. Any of you sitting on the fence regarding shoe shine, sit no longer, bite the bullet and spend the coin on a terrific product that does what you want it to do. The new flat laces also look good. Am heading back to FP of S for the Saphir Presentation box Im so impressed. Oh and Im not on the FP of S payrol and received no free endorsments!!! Shoe polishing is addictive....!!

    hey guys,

    bit of a noob to polishing shoes. What are your routines and how often? Atm, i do :

    1. brush off dust and dirt.
    2. Apply saphir renovateur
    3. Allow renovateur to dry and brush off.
    4. Apply saphir cream polish.
    5. Dry, brush off and buff.

    I do hate that cream polish leaves a dull/matte look. Is waxing recommended for the whole shoe or will just the toe-box do?

    How often should renovateur and the cream polish be used? i've seen contradicting answers :S some even recommend renovateur once every 6 months

    And in my defence the record states I wasn't ever actually convicted. ( that time)

    I go for 5cm cuffs, but quite often and thanks to my dangly legs, there is not nearly enough fabric to allow for such luxuries...*

    Only just realised impolyt_one does some japan proxy service. Now I know where to go when I go get some stuff from TSC over in japan!

    They are sort of mid market like R&B and Herringbone but about a million times more variety - they have like 15 different cuts with drops 2 to 8 each block - and at fraction of the price. Plus they do lots of funny things with the construction from standard fully lined all the way down to unstructured and unlined. You just have to do a lot of research on their charts to figure out which cut is for you.

    They're basically Shinjuku Isetan men's department for the poor.

    do they have a website to check out?

    I'm in Tokyo at the end of the month and am looking out for a store or two to visit.

    happy to take any other suggestions too.
