    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Great post. Btw, just ordered some Collonil goat hair brushes from a seller on EBay, $14 each. Hoping they eliminate the scratches I see on my SC shoes when I buff them.

    Thanks!
    Yeah, I've handled the Collonil goat hair brush. Very soft :inlove:
    They cost $30 USD here in Japan. Looks like you got a great deal.

    Not sure if this is the right thread to ask but seems like as good a place as any - does anyone know if Kinokuniya in NYC is still stocking Last Magazine? I haven't seen it the last few times I've passed by. I suppose I could ask them to special order it, but for a while they had all of the back issues on the racks. . .

    You could have them order or order from their online store.

    Or, Amazon Japan is a very good alternative when you buy >$100 worth of books.

    Thanks! :fonz:

    Those polishing cloths are sold at Brift H, but you can easily make them yourself.

    They are strips of cotton flannel cut to 3" x 16".

    First time post but have been lurking now for over a year. Thank you all as I have learned much from you. Thought I'd save everyone the downloading of all eight images separately and combined them all into one reduced size PDF file attached here. Hope I didn't overstep any boundaries. At 13MB, the original PDF was too big to post here so if you'd like the non-reduced size version, please PM me. Thanks again, especially to nutcracker for the translation work!

    Wow, very informative. I've always wonder why there are streaks after I brush my waxed captoes, that's because I've been using horsehair brush, and not goat hair. Good timing.

    As for leather sole care, anyone knows a dealer in North America for the Tapir on page 4? It cost 35 Euro to post to Canada.
