As the title suggests, I have two John Varvatos boots and I want/need to antique them. A friend of mine refered me to this site, I dunno if anyone can help me with this. Thanks!

There have been a few articles on it. The original by AHarris and i believe a few others by APortnoy or Sysdoc? For some reason no-one has entered them into the StyleForum Wiki or they have mysteriously vanished from it? Try doing a search.

I think Sysdoc's stuff is gone, but someone still has AHarris's dissertation on it backed up. Perhaps they'll post it.

Here you go! https://webdrive.service.emory.edu/u.../antiquing.pdf I'll keep it up for a couple days, but then it has to come down...it's a 2.2mb .pdf edit: I also have Meaculpa's "Fixing a pair of Bruno Maglis" photoessay saved as a .pdf. That's probably the best thread I've ever seen on Styleforum. It's almost a hundred megs, but if you want it, PM me and I'll send it to you via www.dropload.com.

Looks like we have 20mb (and my pdf is 93.3) I'll try and get screen captures of the pictures and load it up, though. edit: I'll make it work on our wiki--I think that's a great resource and I'd love to add something to it (even if it's not really my work). I PM'ed Meaculpa for his permission to post it and if it's okay with him, I'll get started with it. edit 2: Meaculpa will re-post his photoessay thread to sf.net and i'll copy it to the wiki very very shortly. be on the lookout
edit 3: http://styleforum.pbwiki.com/photoessay

I tried antiquing some crappy rubber soled shoes for practice. What do you guys think of my handiwork?

As Karim mentioned, I will post the photoessay in its entirety sometime this week.
