    Very nice. This style looks better than Westbourne, which I just bought two pairs. I am jelous of your shine.
    Enjoy!

    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?

    Thank you.
    I just used Renovateur and Mahogany Pommadier cream and brushed vigurously.

    Thank you.
    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.

    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.

    Thank you.
    I didn't do much more than quickly shining them a bit.

    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.
