    I think that antiquing is patine. Glacage is "make your shoes shine like crazy".

    Have you ever used your cold polish (for regular polishing, not for antiquing)? On souliers.net somebody uses polishes at different temperatures (www.souliers.net/php/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=42 That is definitely not a chemical effect, rather a change in the viscosity of the polish. Why this makes a different is another story. Mathieu

    What is the difference between the Stowe and the Oundle? Look very similar.

    If I recall correctly, it is the buckle (edit: strap) angle which is the greatest difference. Also, at the heel, there is a tab on the Oundle overlapping from one side to the other; the Stowe has a straight up and down stitch.

    Here's the Stowe: [​IMG] And here's the Oundle: [​IMG] The radius of curvature on the strap on the Oundle is less than the radius of curvature on the Stowe.

    Literally, lasts are the wooden (or now, sometimes plastic) forms upon which shoes are made. Figuratively, "last" refers to the shape of the finished shoe.

    Manufacturers typically either name or number their lasts. Edward Green numbers theirs. 202, 606, 808, and 888 are examples of the numbers that EG uses for their lasts.

    also it looks like the place where the 'tongue' meets the ...vamp(?) is lower on the oundle than the stowe. the top edge of the tongue looks to be lower (more open) as well. but it could just be a different size shoe.

    /andrew - enjoyed seeing this thread resurrected

    JCusey, Thanks for clearing that up. Stunning suede too -- that's the first time I've seen the Oundle/Stowe monkstrap in suede.

    It does look good, doesn't it? More slightly eccentric pictures can be found on the Japanese Edward Jones site.

    J, what do you think of those Newbury specials? Looks rather Italian with the squared off nose there...

    I have Stowes, thanks to the redoutable Mr. Harris. Worfe them today and loved them.

    Mine are just as the picture he posted- dark oak antique, 606 last, ordered through Malouf's in Burlingame.

    Thanks bengal-stripe, but I am looking at A Harris' patine results. :(

    Trying to learn the French's way of patine and glacage.
