    Question New Morelatto band, beewax it, use shoe polish or do nothing at all?

    Hi to all,
    i would like your opinions on the Morelatto band that is on my Sea-Gull. IMHO, it looks kinda "dry".

    Would it "nourish" itself?

    It is tanned and finished that way on purpose. If it is really dry in your opinion, use something that is a natural leather conditioner, Sno-Seal, Bick 4, and others.

    DO NOT use shoe polish, use a real leather conditioner if you decided it needs help. Something with beeswax is way better than shoe polish.

    To me, it looks like a pigskin style that should look just like the picture. If you want a shinier finish, there are lots of straps with that look-- this just isn't that look.

    i used a natural leatherconditioner with beewax (the one you see in the picture) and gently "massaged" it in with a soft toothbrush, and than i alowed the band to absorb the wax. It sucked it in right away, so it actually wàs dry. I removed the remaining residu of the wax with a fine, soft spunge that its special made for this wax. I did not want to change the colour or look. Now it is exactly how it should feel. Don't know if i should repeat the treatement after a while..... The band will "ask" for it when needed imho. The colour and finish did not change, only the "dry" feel is gone, wich i like.....

    Bick's 4 only. Guys with $$$ boots use it, so it must be the best.
