    Santoni does excellent work on their finishes. They can do a really nice solid color, some mild antiquing... and (like those) some Berluti-esque heavy antiquing. The BIG PLUS is that Santoni makes their finishes with Dye (not polish- like Berluti & some others), so it is permanent.

    XPost from the Alden Thread, regarding the merits of Saphir Renovateur...

    -------------

    Not directly Alden related, but wanted to praise Saphir Reno for a moment. Placed an order w/ A Suitable Wardrobe on Tuesday afternoon, and arrived today at noon (aka - superfast shipping). Decided to to a test run on my beat up Clark's Bushacres (a calf leather) that I had posted a few pages back to see how it behaves, what sort of dosage to use on shoes, etc.

    For recollection:

    Boom baby. If you don't have this product yet in your arsenal, don't hesitate.

    Beautiful. Did they still have the dark navy blue 'wingcap' oxfords available? I bought them in November and I'm quite happy with them. Highly recommended.

    Hello all. I usually post over at the thriftstore thread, but have a shoe question that might be better answered here. I recently came up with a pair of RTW Silvano Lattanzi brown cordovan split-toe Norvegese bluchers. The interior label is handwritten and I cannot make out what the actual marked size would be. Hopefully someone on this thread who is more familiar with Lattanzi could help me determine their size.

    Thank you all beforehand. -M-

    Great shoes. Are they bespoke? Who is Louis Boston? Is that a retailer or a person? If you can't find the size you can take internal measurement with a flexible tape measure. Most guys are going to want to have the measurements anyway.

    ^^^^ Louis Boston is a Boston retailer. Used to be great. Now, not so much.
