Mail Check – January 8th 2015

Today, my small order of Saphir shoe care products came in from Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project.

Saphir-Mail-Check

Saphir Renovateur: a replenishing cream and Saphir Pate de Luxe (Mahogany): a wax and pigment polish.
As soon as these stabilize to indoor temperatures, I’ll put these to work on a pair of Italian made Johnston & Murphy loafers. Before, after, and in-between pictures will be posted.
