1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I need to get a shoe shine box/kit. I've got polish and cream and brushes, but they're currently in brown paper bags in my closet. It's far from ideal. I'd like something nice that can go in my closet but not be unsightly if it's left sitting out for a day or two. Any recommendations?

    I find the ones offered by The Shoe Shine Kit to be of good value.

    I've ordered creams and polish from them many times and have had only good experiences

    I actually use shoe boxes (Lobb boxes are particularly nice)[​IMG] I've always coveted the shoe shine trunk storage case that's prominently displayed in the Madison Ave. store, though.

    I use a zip toiletry bag, which seems to work fine.

    The Avel (Saphir, Medaille d'Or) shoe valet is the best that I know of but Paul Bolten's one looks quite good value.

    No, my post reads "Paul Bolten's one looks quite good value" - US$103. It is the Avel shoe valet that costs $323 ( but is also sold by Paul Bolten).

    Perhaps I should use shorter sentences.

    sorry to resurrect an old thread but I've been looking for a nice shoe shine box/kit. I can't seem to find the Paul Bolten box mentioned above... Anybody have any other recommendations? I'm interested in the box, not the stuff inside (I already have enough brushes, polish, etc.).

    Thanks
