Raleigh Kit List - Light Tan Polish?

Hi All,

Just putting together my kit and buying the bits and pieces.

One thing I can not find anywhere, is Kiwi Light Tan polish (as advised on the kitlist). I have bought some Dark Tan (last tin on the shelf).

Can anyone either post a URL for a place I can purchase the Light Tan polish or will the Dark Tan be ok?

Thanks in advance

3 weeks and 4 days until I am off :)

If you have been issued Haix boots, just read the care information on the label. Leder Gris is totally acceptable, as is neutral shoe polish on the leather parts. They do not need to be highly polished.

That's really annoying. I get plenty of results for light tan shoe polish, but the link only goes direct to the main Amazon web page.

Kiwi light tan? Or generic light tan?

I was hoping to buy a brand I have used before - and not take a gamble on a cheaper brand.

I've seen on here that people for instance don't recommend the Cherry Blossom stuff.

I have no idea how you found that, but thanks!

I was literally google searching it, or in the amazon search bar typing Kiwi light tan polish? Ah well, thanks anyway appreciate it!

I haven't done my PRNC yet :(

I go on March 20th, return the 23rd then off to Raleigh 26th!

I've only got dark tan, other lads were using light tan and it makes them a strange colour.

Dark tan is definitely better than light for the boots.

Ha!

I have gone OTT.

Now have light tan, clear polish, dark tan, parade gloss, black polish.

That should cover me hopefully ;)
