^A bit of buffing with cream and/or polish and it should be fine.    Boots and shoes will inevitably get scratched and scuffed as they are worn. You'll be able to cover up most of the damage with some shoe cream and polish and the stuff that you can't cover up most likely won't be noticed by anyone else anyway.   You could ask the people in your RM Williams store to look at it but, given the general calibre of people working in retail nowadays, I highly doubt that...
 He's an interesting guy. I don't know whether he'll help Brioni to find its feet again, but this article from Vogue about him, including an interview, is worth reading: http://www.vogue.com/13454070/brioni-justin-oshea-interview/
 I think that it's one of the Park family, from BnTailor in South Korea.
  Lino? That's very retro, GF!  Or should I say - you're going to put Lino on your floor? 
Hodinkee has been getting more and more "commercial" in recent years (just like another website that we all know...) but this is really taking it too far, I think:   https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/the-bamford-heritage-milsub-a-modern-sub-with-all-the-bits-of-the-original-without-the-six-figure-bill   The above article is, essentially, an infomercial for Bamford. Now, that's not unusual for Hodinkee, as they've been doing that for a long time and I generally don't...
 Quite different to the movie, and originally published as a short story. My favourite Dick novel - written before he really started to get pretty surreal - is "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", later filmed as Blade Runner.  I love Blade Runner but, with the exception of the visuals and Rutger Hauer's off-the-cuff additions to Roy Baty's speech, the book is better, deeper and more philosophical than the movie. 
 @Foxhound - Where else are you travelling in Indonesia, and how long for?  I hope that you have a great time. Indonesia's not necessarily an easy place to get around (diametrically opposed to Japan in that respect) but it's a fascinating place. 
Furniture from the Philip Johnson-designed Four Seasons hotel in New York City is to be auctioned off:   http://www.dezeen.com/2016/06/15/critics-slam-painful-wright-auction-philip-johnson-four-seasons-restaurant-seagram-building-interior-new-york/   http://qz.com/740146/photos-the-most-iconic-midcentury-modern-dining-room-in-the-us-is-being-auctioned-off-piece-by-beautiful-piece/        
 Absolutely. @rirakuma - are those the straps that came with both watches, or are they aftermarket? If so, would you mind letting us know where they're from?
 I usually wear a dinner suit once, sometimes twice a year. I've got a shawl-collar dinner suit from Herringbone, back when they made decent clothes.  Obviously, I don't wear my dinner suit much, but I never saw the need for a special pair of shoes to wear with my dinner suit, so I've always just worn it with a pair of well-polished, black C&J Audley cap-toe balmorals.  I do also have a pair of black wholecuts with a medallion on the toe, and I did consider wearing it with...
