  1. Sorry if this is a mong question

    i was told if you polish you boots with dark tan then black it provides a better shine

    Any truth in this? and if so how do you do it?

    It's true-Black first then brown.

    But if you want to find out how, try reading the great big sticky on,... guess what?


    Use the fcuking search function!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Would that of been some advice from a rather crusty looking recruit at a TAFS 1 w/e last week by any chance ?

    Dark Tan works yes, but be VERY careful, don't brush polish loads accross your boots or they will end up looking dark brown, use a little to top off the shine at the end, it doesn't make it more shiney, just adds depth
  4. Cheers lads

  5. oh my :roll:

    polish is the colour it is for a reason
    the bulling process layers your leather with the polish.
    If you use another colour that colour will eventualy layer on your boots.
