This is somewhat referring back to the debate of whether to use cream or polish/paste that was brought up a while back in another thread. Aldens from thier website recommended polish and A.E. only sells cream for cordovan. It has always been my understanding that with only using a carnuba polish- one will notice the white lines and creasing or furrowing of the leather moreso than with a cream. Even though cordovan leather is actually a membrane below the hide of a horses rump or hindquaters as I understand it, one will still get the "furrowing" or the lines with only using polish Perhaps some of you more knowlegeable gents could expand on this please? Respectfully, John G.
