    michaelvl, as DpprDr said, definitely use black cream or polish to darken shoes.

    Nice, thanks for sharing. Will definitely start throwing some black polish into the mix!

    Agreed. If you are trying to darken, alternating with Renovateur is not the way to go. Though frankly, I don't know why you'd be alternating with Renovatuer anyway.

    Darkening burgundy with black is fine - so long as you are using paste and not cream. If you are using the pigment-heavy cream, I'd go v-e-r-y slowly with very thin / light coats.

    Hey vcan anyone give me some info on sizing re widths?
    I have a pair of Chelseas on the 82 last in 10.5F. They fit me comfortably but not perfectly and are def a little wide for my feet. I'm wondering how much difference there is between the F and E fittings as I was considering picking up another pair from an SF sale if they're going to fit me. Unfortunately I live about 900km from my nearest EG stockist so I have nowhere to go to to try any on.

    I found the difference between E and F last a lot , I have a Galway on the 202E last but the same size on the 202F were too big for me.

    Just got these, a little ahead of schedule, Edward Green Sandringhams in Chestnut:

    San Francisco 49ers Galway Group MTO
    Also, I wanted to pick up on the San Francisco 49ers Galway Group MTO that was being discussed before. We had 3-4 people interested but I need 6 to avoid the MTO fee. Price will be 6960 SEK ex VAT (about $1065) including shipping and handling. Uppers (the bottom part) will be in Edwardian and the quarter/shaft will be in Berry Suede. Double leather sole (can be discussed). PM me or e-mail sales@skoaktiebolaget.se for details on this GMTO.

    Very nice combo. Has the black made a difference yet?

    Thanks. Really not my intention to darken it but I eventually plan to get another pair in burgundy (maybe the Beaulieu) and intentionally have one eventually darken over time and the other lighten.

    Barely any difference since I haven't really polished them often.

    Yes, this was actually the picture that gave me the idea... now that I see it again, maybe I'll go darker with the Beaulieu and lighter with my Inverness (although I think those in the picture are Malverns). :slayer:

    The suede is awesome but I do have preference for pebble... might have to mull over these Galways.

    Man, the past couple of games have been painful... At least the bitter coldness here in MI numbs the pain. :satisfied:

    true. it could always be worse. you could be a lions fan and have to agonize over bone-headed plays all season. then again a midnight navy and cloud boot would look half-decent
