    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.

    Hi all,

    I'm a long time lurker but this is my first post. I'm hoping you sartorial chaps can either help or allay my fears.

    I was just doing a spit shine to my Barker brogues (which I've done countless times with my other black and brown shoes) and as I was polishing the right shoe it appeared that some moisture began spreading from the brogue holes (please correct me if these have a special name).

    Anyway the moisture marks are quite apparent and frankly rather ugly and for some reason the same effect food not appear despite the exact sane treatment to the left shoe.

    Can anyone tell me if this is normal, is there something that can be done or is this pair now a write off?

    Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

    Cheers,

    Oooof, a tough one. This might be suited for a post in the shoecare thread, here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc/.

    The regulars there are general helpful and have good advice about very specific issues like this.

    Good luck.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Thanks,

    Can you tell me the best way to cross post? I apologise I didn't see the shoe care thread.

    It's not always easy to find those threads, thus this forum, and the link I gave. Just copy and paste your original post to that thread.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
