    Paid a visit to my local Clarks store and was having a lengthy chat with one of the clerks, he said he still wears his pair of 9 year old beeswax. I HAD to snap a pic, they were lovely! I asked if he had them resoled since they still looked like they were in really good condition, surprisingly he had not. [​IMG] They also had these, which I've never seen before. Waxed canvas [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Bought a pair of brown suede desert boots. Should I suede protect them? Is it necessary? [​IMG]

    I need a list of American online stores that carry the beeswax leather AND ship to Canada. The canadian dollar is waaay too good to buy things at canadian prices. I know needsupply has them but they don't have them in the size I need... any suggestions would be sweet

    I'm looking at getting a pair of Taupe Suede DB's, but they're a little light for my tastes. Is there anything I could do (water-proofing or suede protection) that will darken them up a bit? Pics would be much appreciated.

    Beeswax look good, black look horrible.
