    Hi Mike (and anybody else with good shoe care knowledge),

    I purchased a pair of steinbecks last year in the dark brown leather (can't remember the exact name of it). It is a rugged leather and I used sno-seal on them because they are my inclement weather boot (along with my indys). To keep the leather from drying out, what do I need to do for leather treatment? Do I need to remove the son-seal and put something like renovateur to moisturize them on, or can I just put on a fresh layer of son-seal? If I do need to remove the current coating, what is a good product?

    Thanks!

    Keith

    Agreed, but I think it would be totally badass to see a full suit with Rviets rather than Walts! The rise would be too low for me, but I think it could work with the right body type.

    Depends on the exact leather, but the answer to most questions like this is Saphir Renovateur.

    Ok, so to be clear

    1) clean off current snoseal... maybe with allen edmonds cleaner conditioner?
    2) renovataur
    3) sno seal again... because they are rugged and I definitely do not treat them delicately.

    thanks for the help

    I believe the Reno is the remover...like a primer for paint.

    Ok just came home to some EP goodies...of note:

    The EPLA jeans are really soft and fit great. As with all my EP pants the waist is a good inch too big but always need to wear a belt with jeans so it's fine...out of curiosity though, has anyone had jeans taken in at the waist? Seems like a pain for a tailor.

    The EPLA t-shirts are also crazy soft. I thought they'd be a bit more fitted but really nice. I may shrink it in the dryer but great t-shirts.

    The engineer shirt...holy crap that's an awesome heavy weight. One problem...it's really fitted! In fact it's probably spot on but for Mike or the EP crew, will this material break in and loosen with wear or will it tighten up with even a cold wash and hang dry? Trying to decide whether or not to break it in or exchange for a bigger size if it will shrink.

    EPLA line is great :)

    That's renomat, as opposed to renovateur. I believe renovator was advised. Renomat is powerful stuff, so be careful if that is the route you decide to go.

    I'd do Renomat (follow the directions or forum advice w/ that) to get the old sno-seal off, then Renovateur, then Sno-seal. Of course, if you find that the sno-seal has effectively worn off (i don't know shit about sno-seal so i don't know if that happens) you might just be able to hit it with the renovateur and then a fresh coat of sno-seal. but if the sno-seal is still doing its job in full, yeah, you're gonna want to get it off if you wanna put any sort of conditioner (the reno) on.

    Secret Santa!

    Total success, in that

    A) I had no idea that Philly made both of these amazing things

    B) There is booze.

    I love the fact that so many of us defaulted to booze as a gift, I know I did.

    Thanks, Santa :slayer: :slayer: :slayer:
