    Just applied some. It doesn't seem to do anything in terms of shine but I guess it's only suppose to protect against water spots when it rains. I've heard it does work though.

    It also smells really good.

    I'll add this as the last step every time I condition (or polish) my cordovans.

    Pleased to announce I have officially joined the SF-Alden family. Just snagged a pair of shell 974s in #8 off ebay.

    Feel so proud of myself.

    ^ You tease me with your all-eyelet cigar captoe boot!

    Also lacing looks rather tight.

    These are the balmoral wingtips, right? A style not often seen here, I think. Congratulations and please share photos when you can.

    So way off topic (this being an Alden thread) but... I've been put off by all the mishegas (technical term) you need to deal with for some of these high end jeans. For me, you buy a pair of 501s, you wear them, they get dirty, you toss them in the wash. I appreciate the craft of some of the Japanese fabrics, the stitching, etc but they are still jeans. Am I missing something? Are there brands that I should consider?

    Tellason (100% made in USA) or 316 (japanese denim, made in USA). Both companies run by true denim-heads with a real passion for the product.
