Polished - The Belgrave




I spent a few hours in the company of a great friend, talking nonsense, drinking tea and polishing my Crockett & Jones Belgraves. Not a quick process, but an enjoyable one, and the end result, good as it is, pales in comparison to the enjoyment of a day spent chasing integrity.

    Simon - beeswax polish, spit, and lots of time will get you there.

  4. That's some great work there. You should do a post outlining your process to complement the write-ups that you've done about C&Js and Aldens. You should also highlight any accessories (cigars, scotch, etc) that enhance the experience.

  5. Yes, I think a tutorial is needed. Also, I assume your applying a great deal of polish? can too much polish be detrimental to the shoes longevity?

  6. Thanks for all the kind words - Pitboss, a cup of tea and good coversation is all I add to improve the experience. Anon - quite the opposite, very little polish, applied sparingly and buffed completely each time.
