    I bought a bunch of suede cleaning stuff from the hanger project and did the suede cleaning tutorial from the website on my GG loafers last night. That stuff is amazing. Took maybe a half an hour of my time and they look like new again.

    THANKS KIRBY!!!!

    Stitch, nice work. I bought all my suede cleaning paraphernalia from Kirby as well. After seeing the results, there are no more worries about banging around in your suedes.

    I use the suede brush every time before and after I wear my suede G&Gs. Keeps them going strong.

    I tried placing an order using the "StyleForum" promotional code to get the 10% off. The code was accepted initially but when I attempted to check out and complete the order, the discount was removed. If I tried to re-enter the promo code I would get an error message saying that it was an invalid code. I'm pretty sure that the issue is that my order qualified for free shipping (shoe care items). Due to the amount of items I was purchasing though, the 10% off promo code would have saved me about $5.00 more than the free shipping offer. Once the system confirmed that it qualified for the free shipping, the promo code still wouldn't work if I chose a non-free shipping method.

    I know it's not much but I thought I'd bring it to your attention in case this isn't meant to be how it works.

    In other news, great offerings on your site!

    I highly recommend the Nano protector as well during the foul weather months. Amazing stuff. Only downfall is it needs re-application every 3-4 weeks if you wear the shoes consistently.

    My favorite Suede Brush is the Horn-Backed Suede Cleaning Brush. It is the only one we have with natural bristle, and I find that it is the easiest and most effective one to use.

    Daily use of a Suede Cleaning Brush is essential for the proper maintenance of suede shoes. This post here talks about some techniques for the daily care of suede.

    Daniel - the 10% promotional code is really meant more for the items that do not qualify for free shipping, like hangers. With the Saphir stuff, it's really either-or. And there is no way for us to allow users to choose between the two.

    I'll definitely be adding one of those on my next order - my shoe wish list seems to have more and more suede on it, and I just got a pair of suede chukkas from our friendly affiliate Kent Wang over Christmas, so I'll need one soon!
