7 What’s the best Way to De­velop and main­tain the patina on my leather ac­ces­sories?

DA MAN - Style - - Style Faq -

the devel­op­ment of a patina on leather goods is a nat­u­ral process that comes from con­stant, ev­ery­day wear. there are meth­ods and pro­cesses to in­duce the soft sheen of a patina in a short amount of time, but those are best left to man­u­fac­tur­ers and se­ri­ous tin­ker­ers. that be­ing said, there is some­thing you can do to make sure that your trusty shoes age as best as they can. in short: • For ca­sual shoes, reg­u­larly use leather con­di­tioner and cream pol­ish. the for­mer will help deepen the color, while the lat­ter helps build lay­ers of color for a gen­uinely aged look. A note on pol­ish: try pick­ing one that’s only a shade darker than your shoe’s orig­i­nal color. • For for­mal or dressy shoes, do the same thing, but add wax pol­ish at the end for that ex­tra shine.
