    Lincoln's blue shoe polish is on the light side, at least going by the colours listed here.

    Which brand of shoe polish and shoe cream has the shade of navy that comes closest to your navy? (If it's Saphir, then I'll get Saphir.)

    As for belts, yes, I'd love to get a navy belt with Navy Porter.

    Questions:
    1) What styles are available?
    2) What are the specs on the belt in terms of construction? That is, how would it compare with belts from Equus or Worcestershire Leather (Tim Hardy's)?
    3) What choice of buckles?
    4) What's the price range?

    (I'm asking these questions publicly as I think many will be interested in the answers.)

    Perhaps an "E" width sometime in the near future.


    I think Lincoln's blue wax would work fine for navy items. Saphir isn't quite a navy but works well for this leather. I believe as a general rule, that as long as you go with a lighter wax than the color of the leather, you will have success.

    Belts are completely handmade by me personally here in the US. All are saddle-stitched with premium leather and hardware. I will probably eventually setup a separate thread for this but for now please pm me. I'll send you a pm now.


    It depends on color and length but as a general rule but I'll send you a PM.

    I'll be selling mine shorty, along with a few other pairs of my shoes; no reason in particular. Here's a shot of the navy Porter's with a few other pairs: Trickers Nottingham, Vass U-Cap, DC Lewis Porter, RLPL (EG) Peering. [​IMG]

    Those medium brown shoes look very familiar.

    David, did you get my pm on the Navy Porters? Also, I would need a similar navy belt.

    Yes, I am copying. I have enough brown and black medallion shoes in my collection. Need a bit of a change.

    You are selling all those?! Why?! Also, nice to see the Porter has pretty much the sexiest waist there.

    As always, the best looking shoes are either too big, or too small.

    Just trimming down a few pairs. I never seem to be able to wear through everything I have, although I always buy more... :cry:
