    Thanks, I'll give it a whirl. I did use a little saphir cordovan creme with ok results. I did notice that brushing brought up the oils in the hide and using a cloth smoothed it out/ shined it up.

    It seems that Crockett&Jones has raised their retail prices, so Carmina offers the most shoe at their mid-range price segment at the moment. I would mention Meermin, but they have such a poor quality control that you never know what kind of a "shoe" they'll ship, and this may happen several times for the same customer. Rule Carmina.
