I know theses things are great for polishing my boots, just where the hell do I get one from?
Go to a jewellery shop as it is used to polish silver and such stuff! NOT CHEAP
I would not use the cloth that people use to clean silver, We got parades going on and I had to bull boots.
thankfully there is a military surplus store where we are and they sell silvette cloath.

I went to a jewellers and bought one then found exactly the same cloth in Tesco for half the price and the jewellers don't give clubcard points!
Tesco's is the place!
I find them a little harsh as a cloth, they can scratch your boots, would suggest putting them through the washing machine a couple of times first..

Holy shit! You can polish my shoes anytime Butler!
