mikeeey did you apply alot? I just gave mine a very very thin coating of mink oil.

Like using the finger to brush through very fast.

The belt absorbed it within minutes. Should i mink more? Will another coat or too much mink oil ruin the belt?
i didnt use mink oil for this belt.

1 coat first, then i use hairdryer to blow it a little, then 2nd coat... should be enough for now

mink oil too much also no good.

some pics of my freshly LP-ed belt. (some traces of excess LP still can be seen)

The LP smells kind of funkier than mink oil. smells like the streets of taiwan street hawkers (smelly tofu + choked sewages)
That's strange. I've just use LP on my bag and boots 2 days ago, I find it smell of sweet honey. The smell lingers in my room for abt 2 days.

haha.. i exagerrated on the tofu + sewages part..

it smells ok, but not something on my "nice to smell" list.

Think mine is light yellowish. Not to the extend of greenish. Think u better check with where u bought it from. If u search online, it's suppose to have a mild honey smell

In my opinion,Just wear it like you always do. If you feel like mink-ing it. Go for it. If you feel like sunning it,go for it too! Its supposed to fit the way you work and wear it and come out with something personal!

wah! Please don't say its a problem! The skive thin part is because its a 15 oz thats why for better handling. Regarding the marks, i believe i have explained! haha. You say problem, later people really think its big problem then i die.
