You should soak first then condition. Cause water drys the natural oil up. The patch needs the conditioning more after the soak.

I'd go with Lexol. And try not applying too much conditioner. It may seem like the more the merrier but it actually harms the leather. Over oiling actually breaks down the leather.

Trying to revive this awesome thread. Some evo pics from my collection.

My favorite: Momotaro 201. Turned cherry red after applying oil. somewhat 8 months between the pics.

Momoatro 0905 SP. Came as one-wash of course, so more crinkled than the 201 above. Pic below - applied mink oil once, three washes.

are those sugarcanes made of ostrich leather?

I think they're made of denim...

These are thickest I've ever seen (the 32oz denim model) :

These arrived 2 whole seasons late (ordered them last summer) and apparently a lot had to do with the difficulty sewing this on to the denim.

My Cheap Mondays just have a regular black logo patch which doesn't even show up in a picture - I tried.

My first Timothy Everest had a horrible Japanese geisha flower patch

My new Diesels that I'm hoping for - don't know yet

Timothy Everest pair due and all future pairs to have custom leather patches and top fly buttons

Can't wait for the new pair on their way from Japan!!!

Will post pics when they arrive!
