    What's the diff between the cream and the pate? I have some pate that I ordered from a fine pair of shoes.

    Pate de luxe is the wax polish that buffs to a really nice shine. The first one was a cream polish that helps condition the leather, but won't buff to as high of a shine.

    is there anything special about this brush? Im asking because the seperation of the bristles is uncommon for horse hair brushes. Perhaps that is done for more than just cosmetic reasons?

    I have been looking to spend my Ebay bucks on something and only regret that I did not know about the paste sooner, but I still nabbed the last two black Pate de Luxe. I got everything I wanted on the cremes, however, so that was great. Spoo, you are the man! :worship2:

    Wow must have sold pretty much as soon as it listed. I clicked on search - spotted the listing at the very top - clicked through - checked it over and posted the link here.

    US shipping only - I should think someone here got them...

    Wow, I would have snatched those up in a second. My search for my first (well priced) pair of Alden boots continues...
