Very nice. This style looks better than Westbourne, which I just bought two pairs. I am jelous of your shine.
Take a 4h break to make a shine like that on yours, they deserve it
I also use Saphir Mahogany on my Chestnut Belgraves and was wondering what the Havana is like. Are you using that to build the darker patina?
I just used Renovateur and Mahogany Pommadier cream and brushed vigurously.
I was surprised by the lenght of the shoe (last 358); it is a good fit but it looks soooo long...
I will downsize ½ size next time; I'm looking to buy a shoe in last 363.
Havana is a dark shade of brown,

What did you do for the shine on the toe caps?
Great finish. Handgrades from C&J are usually pretty shiny right out of the box - but I don't recall seeing much variation/depth on the pairs that I have seen.
They look great!
Quick spit shine with Medaille d'Or Dark Brown/Mahogany mixed wax on the toe caps and heel counters.
I didn't do much more than quickly shining them a bit.
Will be the best 4 hour spent. Therapy for me! Thanks,
I have another pair of C&J, but the bench grade.
No matter what I do, it won't shine like the Selbourne; I think the handgrades are made with a different, better quality lather.
Took me only 2 minutes to put the shine on the caps.
Any opinions vs. C&J??
I have both; nice shoes but they look and feel flimsier in construction than C&J;
