    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.

    I suspect he means a more even gradient, or transition, from dark to light on the cap toe. As currently, there is a sharp transition, going from solid dark to a drastically lighter color almost instantly.

    Not sure that helped...

    I think the easiest way to achieve this would be to strip of the wax you have applied now and start over again.

    But should I only use dark brown wax. Or mix with black and light brown?

    I personally like mixing it up, I even use green wax on some of my brown shows. But I would advise you to start with dark brown wax.

    Just posted them from tumblr to see the thoughts. I actually like the midnight color but if the suede could be the same color aswell I would wear them without a problem.

    I'd love a pair of St James II in the hatch grain

    I wonder what the Canterbury would look like in it too

    IMHO the hatch grain is best for wholecuts or less detailed shoes. The extra punching and brouging takes away from the stunning detail of the hatch grain leather itself. I would order it in GG Hays, Westbury or GG Deco Cooper or Holden, Anything else would be like guilding the lilly.

    I am absolutely chomping at the bit to order a pair of Papworths at the moment. How is the sizing? I wear a size 9.5UK (medium width) in Di Biancos and Sutors, 10.5US in Allen Edmonds, my foot isn't overly narrow but fits medium well, can anyone assist? First pair of G&Gs for me....
