We have had plenty of demand for a London-based drop off location for our fine polishing service, and we are now pleased to announce just such a one with our good friends at Pall Mall Barbers. Simply drop off your shoes for a polish or our cobbling services, and collect your gleaming shoes a week later.
Prices start at £12 for our standard polish.
We’ve had enough of cheap and nasty shoe care products and other such piggy-whiffle. The true beau sabreur looks after his shoes with quality and attention. That means creams and polishes from France - in this case, from Saphir. But not just any Saphir… The Medaille d’Or range of great repute.
The three shoe creams (black, dark brown, and neutral) will add colour depth and restore nutrients to the leather for virtually any shoe. Black and dark brown will clearly be suitable primarily for shoes of those colours, though tan and mid-brown shoes do benefit from a light application of dark brown from time to time to lend it an ‘antique’ look. Neutral cream can, of course, be used on everything else.
The neutral shoe polish can be used on any shoe and will not affect colour. It will only form a protective barrier for the shoes, bring out a wonderful shine and lock in the goodness that you have added through the cream.
The Selvyt cloth is the go-to tool for almost all shoe care. Apply all the products with the cloth, massaging them into the leather in small circles. The welt brush is to reach those tricky places that a finger wrapped in cloth cannot quite get to. As always, a small amount of product is all that’s required - just a dab of the brush into the goodness and work away. Finally, use the soft cloth to buff briskly to bring out the shine.
