Ugly or not, it sets a precedent I've been waiting for: a thin digital overlay powered by the automatic mechanical movement it sits atop. Scoff as you will, an automatic mechanical smart watch hybrid will be a fascinating and important achievement. I won't be told otherwise. Now if they could make it beautiful, it might be worth buying.

Some will say you should put trees in any shoe. With the boat shoes I tend not to. They do require some maintenance due to the salt water they tend to come in contact with. But i tend not to think of them as shoes that require shapeliness be maintained. Socks? Never.

At any rate.. For waxy leather, I've had great results with saddle soap. Work up a lather with a bit of water and a clean rag and soap up the shoe. Then wipe it off and brush with a designated wax brush.

I actually have a pair of Clarks boat shoes that I quite adore, Mr. Munky, and they've been with me at least four good years now. Clarks may not be Jermyn Street material, but they're a decent enough shoe in my opinion. Well... a few of the models are...

Actually, on my "prospecting" visit to London (a few months ago) I did happen into Church's in the Burlington Arcade, where I found a lovely pair of Custom Grade black single monks. Perhaps those will prove versatile enough in lieu black oxfords. London is a dangerous place for shoe lovers. Dangerous indeed.
