Heading to Japan at the end of the year (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, etc.).
Just wondering what I should be looking to buy in terms of clothing while I'm over there. Any particular shops I should make an effort to go to?
Just bought a pair of Loake Pimlico. They are my first brown suede chukkas and I was wondering how to care for them best.
So far I only have shoe trees in them but I know I'll also need a spray to protect it and a brush to clean it. Where can I get these shoe care products?
I just bought the Saphir Renovateur from Double Monk.
Should I also get the Saphir cream polish (one for black and one for burgundy) for my Loake Aldwych and Strand? Or is the Herring polish that came with the shoes sufficient?
Also how important is a good horsehair brush? All these shoe care products are adding up to be more than the shoes themselves!
Thanks for the suggestions guys. They all look great and I've never seen wallets like these before.
They're all way out of my budget though which is only around $50. I like this Saddleback one for $21 but shame the shipping brings it out of budget: http://www.saddlebackleather.com/businesscreditcardwallet?quantity=1&custcol2=Chestnut&custcol3=Pigskin&custcol15=Current
So I realised I only ever carry my credit card, myki, driver's license and maybe a note or two. What would be a good wallet to hold all of these?
Maybe something like this? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Unisex-Men-Magic-Money-Clip-Wallet-ID-Bag-Credit-Card-Cash-Ticket-Holder-/351288461200?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&var=&hash=item51ca6c8790
I couldn't resist. I bought a pair of Loake Pimlico in Dark Brown Suede as well.
Where should I get my shoe trees for the Pimlico? I heard Double Monks was good but they're $50. Are they much better than these ones from eBay which are $28? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1-Pair-Mens-Cedar-Wood-Shoe-Tree-Shaper-Keeper-Wooden-Stretcher-UK-6-7-8-9-10-11-/191316572483?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&var=&hash=item2c8b5b3943
Also how do you exactly put shoe trees into boots? I tried...
