    +100. Hem all the way. Looks a bit sloppy IMO.

    I searched the forum as it didn't occur to me that the Mac Method was world renowned. Took your advice and found the most amazing YouTube video. In addition to no longer feeling kind of silly about purchasing a dear bone, I am now truly optimistic about getting my trusty LHS's to pop. Thanks for the advice.

    I don't know about length, but I believe the increase in width is 3/8" every half size, if I remember correctly.

    Try not to overcomplicate the procedure. It really is as a simple as:

    Wipe down with damp cloth
    Brush rigorously with horsehair brush
    Buff with cloth

    Use paste wax only when necessary (to cover up a scuff or add color to a faded pair)

    A lot of people add unnecessary steps. Uncle Mac has great looking shoes that he has owned for years/decades that have never seen wax/polish/product.
