    Hopefully a quick question for you.
    What colour polish would you use on my Beechnut Merton's.
    It's perhaps a tad more red than Chestnut.
    Thanks

    Always use a lighter color if you want to maintain the original shde.. I think either a neutral or light brown should work. This wil keep the original shade and builds a glowy patina with time.
    Try Saphir, a very high quality polish.

    I love mine, but they are decidedly orange-y in real life.
    Ron transformed mine into a museum-dark chestnutty, antiqued brown!

    A long while since I've been here, but wondered if anyone else has received their invitation to the C&J James Bond event at the Jermyn St store - CJ provided the shoes for the new film, and have an invitation only black tie event in two weeks time for special customers.

    Rumoured attendees include D. Craig, and yours truly.

    They look much better like this.
    I agree too orange in real life, difficult to wear


    How is it achieved?
