    These are your recent eBay purchase? They cleaned up really well. It may just be seeing them IRL, as opposed to photographed to show the wear that came on them, but I think they look really great here. Enjoy.

    Yes, same pair. Thank you. I ordered renomat, I hope to give them a good cleaning when the Reno arrives. They look fine irl, i just want to make them look as good as possible.

    Great idea to date before and after pics (I need to start doing that). Fine looking patina on your PTB my friend. Wear in great health...

    Wasn't there a spot/stain on the cap you were concerned about a while back? All I see is a kick-ass shine and patina! [​IMG]

    The problem is, walnut/tan/burnished tan,dark tan look different in different pictures at TSM, let alone on unionmade/epaulet pictures.
