    wow - you have great taste in shoes. These are all terrific, love the Greens and the immaculate laser brogueing on the JLs.

    ^^ Great shoes, but the upper of Santonis look pretty creased and dry; have you applied any shoe cream on to them?

    Thanks for the kind words guys! Trifon - I've used some cream before wearing the Santonis, I think the creases are more pronounced as the leather is rather thick. I just got some shoe care supplies, will carefully condition the shoes before further use. [​IMG] Its all new to me, the only shoes I have every looked after were my army boots, will be extra prudent with these pairs.

    Selling these on the 'bay at the moment but thought I'd put some photos on here as they're a rare old find... Edward Green boots. Marked "E. Green Northampton 1943" - bit of historic porn... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The box was a custom men's valet which I had commissioned earlier to store my wallet, watches, cufflinks and the like. Its solid macassar ebony and lined in mahogany. I was pleasantly surprised it was such a nice fit for all the saphir wax tins.

    Here's a link to the maker's site. He will do custom work entirely to your specification. It was a pleasure working with him on the commissions, a true craftsman.

    Feel free to pm me if you need more info.
