Happy shutdown to my fellow DC residents. A quick n00b question completely unrelated to the government: Have any of you guys found a shoe-shine place that does cordovan properly? When I tried myself, following the Alden instructions, I failed. They looked like shit. This is undoubtedly my fault. I went to two places near where I work (Farragut). The first guy had no idea what I was talking about and the second guy said, sure, sure, I can do that, but I watched in minor...
