Hi Kirby,

2 general questions regarding leather cleaner/polish stripper/conditioner as I don't see many discussion around it. Recently I acquired several pairs of museum calf and crust leather shoes (e.g. Carlos Santos Patina Service & Carmina Vegano leather shoes).

1. As a general consensus on SF, Saphir Renomat is no good for these leathers in terms of stripping built-up polishes as it will also strip off factory finish. In this case, what product is best as a leather cleaner/polish stripper? Is Saphir Renovateur capable of stripping off built up polishes? If not, what products should I be looking at?

2. Some people suggest that Bick 4 is better for museum calf/crust leather as a conditioner than Saphir Renovateur as it does not darken the overall finish of museum calf/crust leathers and said to be more nourishing. Is it true?

Thanks so much!

This is bs. How did you figure this "general consensus" ?

I am using the Renomat on my John Lobb and Crockett Jones calf shoes once per year to remove the build up wax and polish from year round, and it doesn't strip the factory finish.

This is from the shoe care thread and G&G thread a while back stating that renomat should not be used on crust leather. There are some recent posts in Carmina thread showing a vegano shoe's factory finish being stripped off by Renomat as well, which is crust leather.

Hey Kirby, Is it possible to get a 'new arrivals' section on the website?

I check the website every couple weeks to browse and it would be easier to go to one spot instead of opening new tabs for each category (e.g. outerwear, ties, shoe care, etc.)

So . . . I'm going to be lame and not wade though all 200 pages of this. But is there a forum discount?

Placed an order late one night for some Renovateur, and the next morning decided I’d add the shoe shine cloth. Called customer service and was told the first order was already in process, so I’d have to pay shipping again.

While I understand from a technical point of view why this was the case, I felt there was an opportunity to be flexible and comp the second order’s shipping, just as a way to go the extra mile.

The code someone mentioned up top doesn’t work either, at least not on what I ordered.

Hi @althanis

This is not usually our policy -- unless your order has been shipped out already. We are happy to look into this for you. Could you provide me with your order number? I'll have our customer service rep look into it.

Also, regarding our coupon, it is 10% off of orders $100 or more. To confirm the code is: SF10

Thank you! Look forward to hearing from you!

Good morning hangerproject, how are you doing?

Regarding the order # 100092630, I placed it last Friday although I haven't received any order confirmation email nor tracking link yet, I was wondering what the current status for this order is. Figured I'd reach out to you here instead.

Thank you very much sir!

Hi! We just checked in with our customer service rep and we see that she responded to your ticket with a tracking number around 11 AM CT. Also, your package should be waiting for you in your mailbox already! Thank you, have a great day!
