    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.

    Thanks! Unfortunately I didn't get any of the shoes I had bought yet so I had to go with an older pair. :)

    Thanks...a deeply antique version at that. One of my favorite EG hides and a RTW shade that I don't think anyone else does nearly as well.

    Nice Southwolds, I have these in burgundy too.

    Out of 11 pairs of E.G's I currently have in my collection, these get by far the most attention/compliments.

    Mine are very light though, slightly too pinkish for my liking. I have tried to darken them with various different Saphir products (Renovator, Bordeaux and Mahogany cream, dito colored wax), they have only slightly darkened after say 30 polishes with mainly Renovator and cream.

    I really like the darkness of yours, curious how you where able to get them to their current shade and color.

    Try black. That's what I use to get some burnishing on.

    Renovateur is a conditioner and cleaner, thus it has the effect (in my experience) of lightening, rather than darkening antiquing.

    My EGs in Burgundy tend to get lighter unless I polish with black. If you want them as dark as aportnoy's, sticking with burgundy or mahogany polish is not likely to be sufficient. Obviously leathers vary in color and sunlight has an effect blah blah blah.

    I am waiting on an almost identical pair of shoes. Now I really want them, 888 last correct?

    Yes, 888. And on the darkness issue, as these were MTO I could request a very dark finish as I agree that the lighter burgundy finish is less desirable.

    Thanks for the tip!


    Thanks for the info and tips, I reckoned that the mink oil in Renovateur would darken the leather.
    My goal is to get them to look something like these color wise:

    Thanks for the info.
