still on topic, what's the use for suede brush? like one that edoya sells
A Suede brush digs out the dirt lodged on/under the napped surface. It also combs the hair to look uniform and pretty
Yeah Edoya's suede brushes are awesome.The brass wires they use are impossibly thin (0.25mm), you can brush your arm hair with it
so actually it has same uses like horse bristle? i have saphir horse brittle bought at tokyu hands, its the hardest brittle i can find for the value there (except hirano brush, they are very well made)
Yes, Hirano brushes are quite nice, comparable to Edoya.
Pig bristles are harder than horsehair. They're excellent for applying/spreading the polish on the shoes, but I don't think anyone uses a pig bristles brush to buff out a shine.
A horsehair brush like the Saphir one you have may be a better all rounder (dusting, polishing, buffing).
Nutcracker what are those shoes you had shined? If at all possible, sometime would you mind taking a pic of your Japanese shoe collection?
Those are the Il Quadrifoglio (Qnai Atsushi) wholecuts I posted a while back. Currently I only have 2 pairs of Japanese shoes in active duty: those and a pair of Spigolas. I do also have a pair of beat up Regal and Otsuka oxfords from a while ago, but they don't see action anymore.
yeah i would like to see the mastah collection too
I can hold the entire collection with both hands.
didn't you also have that stingray bespoke?
Those are G&G Deco
okay, so around 4-5 japanese shoes but maybe a dozen other shoes
Actually, I've sold quite a lot of my shoes when I moved to Japan. You won't believe how much you can get for an used Alden here in Japan. I recall selling my 3 yrs old Alden in shell for close to $600 USD. Pretty much got my full refund there
it's called a TARSAL strap...
yeah if i'm not wrong import tax for leather product in japan around 30%?
Where's your G&G bespoke black quarter brogue Oxford?
