    Great shoes. I think that is the TV, though it could be any light. Tom, Those Pitt Boot's are awesome. Don't listen to the guy who wants the Trubalance last.

    thank you

    Mac - What color wax do you use for your cigar shell shoes? I have my first pair of cigars and I need to apply the Mac technique but I don't remember seeing you mention the color wax you use on cigar shells. Thanks.

    Alden SF has the Ravello PTB in size 9. I believe the Alden DC Store has the Ravello Longwing in 9 as well.

    This guy is a fraud. None of his shoes have more than 5 wears. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I plan to clean them with a damp cloth, brush them vigorously with a horsehair brush for the approved 5 minutes or so, and then buff with a soft cloth. I was curious about the color you use for future reference.

    Do you subscribe to the "new shell" waxing technique in the following link?

    Hehe. Maybe, but they sure look nice. I'd like my one pair of shell shoes to look half as good.

    Yeah, his shoes do always look great.

    I took delivery on these cigars yesterday and haven't had the chance to wear them. That's why I'm asking about the pencil method (and wondering if I should bother).
