    I still cannot seem to justify paying over $9 in shipping for one or two cans of polish. If only there were someone to provide these fine products and ship them via cheap USPS mail (or even priority mail). The MOST polish I could possibly order is two or three cans/ jars!

    Order 10. Call yourself done for a few years.

    His photography was second to none. Talk about shoe porn.

    That's what I mean. When he was good, he was really, really good. Knew a lot and had some awesome shoes.

    He threw a snit and took his ball, and all his photos (his intellectual property, you know...) and went home.

    Saphir "tutorial"

    Can someone explain to me the need to put both the creme polish (step1) and the wax polish (step3) on the shoes?

    anyone tried Crème Universelle? Very handy. I usually apply it on cheap casual shoes.

    Thanks for the tip. They just got $100 from me and I'll get a free piece of cloth. They have Truefitt and Hill shave stuff, too. Excellent find. Thank you. EDIT/WARNING UPDATE: So I ordered from these guys. 2 of my 5 items did NOT SHOW UP. They were labeled as "back-ordered".. or to be shipped... or whatever you want to call it. Over a week after ordering, they are still not shipped. Lame, in my opinion.
