    right here, for now
    i have a similar design in that color. IMO do NOT use neutral on that shoe.
    my routine is to wear them once or twice then moisturize the creases with saphir dubbins on the end of a
    q-tip then let them sit for a couple of days.
    for my taste, i prefer either of the colors you mentioned mixed with a drop of black or dark brown dye or
    saphir's recolorant particularly for the toe & heel.
    if i want to bull the toe and / or heel, alternate minimal coats of burgundy or black are used depending on
    which way i want to take it.. Awesome choice by the way.

    use your burgundy cream polish and then use black wax.

    itll give you mostly burgundy but itll give you hints of the black. thats what i would do

    I need sizing input on the KN14 last. For reference I am a US size 10.5 on the EG 888, and a US size 10 on the EG 89. Would a US size 10 on the KN14 work for me?

    Eyeing those St. James in Vintage Cherry. It may actually be less expensive to order from them directly than going to Leffot . Sad really; I want to support them. If it's looking like I'm going to save ~$200, I'm going to do it.

    KN14 is the loafer version of the MH71...the soft square last...and in my opinion MH71 is the nicest of the lot. You need to size down by no more than a half from your US size as they cut the loafer pretty snug in KN14. I'd say you'd possibly be a UK9.5 in KN14 (as US 10 is your size in a normal EG last).

    I am on the fuller side of US9D....in KN 14 Im a UK8.5E and the fit is glove-like.

    Duhhh...of course why would you spend 200 bucks more to 'support' someone else?

    Haha. Well it's also a shame because he's local. I can walk to his store and pick them up. But even without taxes, he's more expensive than for G&G to ship it.

    Thanks both of you. I will be careful. Vintage Rioja is a wonderful color.
