    On the other hand your wallet is breathing a sigh of relief.

    Nick, after 1h polish. Still no good effect. When we are talking about patience how long time did it take to get a shine like that, 3h on each shoe?

    Will continue tomorrow :D

    Nope, you just need to improve your technique; lighter application and find the perfect spot between water (+alcohol) and wax.

    For what it's worth, I had popped into the SF Barney's and noticed the Windsor had been marked down to the ~450 level. They didn't have my size, but they were able to get the NY store to mail to me. Just a head's up. Said they had a couple of pairs in US11... probably other sizes as well. 3 pairs in less than a month. What an odd bender.

    Same last as the Westbury and Gable, right?

    Awesome, thanks for the heads up! Just called NY store and got the last pair of 10.5's - the green Savoy's. Agonized over them at $700, but done deal at $500ish.

    let me know how you guys do with those green shoes. i bought a couple of pairs of green shoes (not GG) some time ago but gave them away because i can't wear them unselfconsciously

    I wore my green savoy's for the time on Friday - I wore them with charcoal flannel suit (ercole), green and off white cashmere herringbone tie (hermes) and had no issues. I thought they looked damn fly :slayer:
