    I don't quite understand what you are saying, but I think you want to know whether you should use wax polish or cream polish for your Tetburys. Cream is probably enough if you don't want a mirror shine, but if you want a shine you should also use wax. You can also state your question in this thread:

    They are called the Stanhope. They are a MTO pair on the 342 last in Chestnut.

    They are quite something, and I think they are quite gorgeous!

    For that price i would have bought G&G Astaire. I´ve tried Astaire pin grain / mole suede at Davidssons in Sweden and they are really cool.

    UPDATE: They are C&J on the 317 Last. I got them on Friday. The "brown" is C&J's Beechnut, which, IMO, is one of C&J's nicest colors. I ordered TTS and the fit is very good (US9.5D). I also have the Drummond in Beechnut (UK8.5E).

    The "dark brown" pebble grain offering with rubber sole from BB (split toe) is C&J on the 325 last.
