    Dear SF,

    I have several pairs of Thurston braces with WHITE goatskin ends. They have become dirty. How can I clean them. (I have repeatedly contacted Alebrt Thurston directly, and their advice did not help).

    Warm Regards,

    ELG

    I can't tell you how to make these goat leather ends white again, but I do strive to wear my Thurstons enough so that the white goat ends achieve a natural "dirty" look.:nodding:

    It's refreshing to see a topic that has not been discussed before.

    Hello there. yes, the white goatskin ends of my Thurstons do eventually have a a "lived in" look and I also rather like it...

    I have many many pairs of the Boxcloth and wouldn't be seen sporting anything else..

    Regards
