It has been my experience to use mink oil made by Fiebings Corp. for many years now. I agree with the Nokona exec's about vasoline, but as with many, the tried and proven seems to work well, the lexol products are great..the best?? I have relied on Fiebings products found only in fine leather specialist stores or on the net..no, I do not work for them. dark leathers get darker..they look over oiled, but they are not, just darker from treatment, Nokona and some very precious horween hides, just seeem to look darker after treatment, horween before 1997 produced hides in a cordorvan color for HOH, not many were used, those HOH gloves can be counted before you get to the end of your second hand, why...cost to produce, put mink oil on one those BFOT gloves and it looks like it was dumped in 30w reclaim..but it was not, it was its nature to get darker with treatment. Ichiro, Seattle Mariners still to this day, puts a light glaze of mink oil on his glove every single day...but what does he know!! gold glove and all, besides he learned that trick fron the Express..Mr. Ryan and his Nokona gloves, Ichiro also uses his glove every single day.
