I heard something like ironing by pressing the tie against the iron - no idea how that could be done practically...
...shirtwear depends on the time you wear them not on the age of the shirts themselves. I got a shirt that needed the cuffs to be replaced after only one year but as I loved that shirt it got worn really a lot! And washed carfully by hand btw... ...since I know this I order spare cuffs with all the new shirts I have made... ...oh, my shirtmaker stated that one year is really fast for wearing out cuffs - three to four years (as you stated) were more normal...
...suits...

...I got a 1960s Omega deville - see WAYWT - and would wear it everyday if it wasn't for the black leatherband. So I need a second nice watch with a brown band to go with brown belts and shoes... ...actually I got a second one. A 6ts Stowa - but this is just a piece of decoration as it doesn't keep time at all. This would have a metallband. Hope to get it repaired sometime but as it is kind of a cheap watch I don't want to spend too much... ...metallbands are more...
...the oppsite of an wholecut. Is that a cutup then?
...too slow - so I deleted...

Personaly I think Trad-Skins are even more strict in terms of style - and they (ähhh, we?) don't even have to care about the modern part of mod. Whatever - back to US trad...
Isn't it kind of paradox to take part in a TRAD competition as a MODERNIST?
Darker polish or even cream (cause this gets 'soaked' up in the leather) for antiquing or chanching the colour alltogether - at least to a certain degree. For example I didn't like AE chilli too much and using a dark burgundy cream and dark brown polish gives it a nice oxblood colour... Lighter polish could be used to match the stitching of a shoe if that has a lighter colour and you want to keep it that way. Generally if you don't want to change anything in the tone...
