I dont understand why . . . 10 years ago, Goodwill was almost all suits and no blazers/orphaned jackets. Now it's drastically the other way 'round.
I've never had that happen. But i do use the Kiwi-Care wax when needed. Why do the overshoes diminsh the shine?

This thread makes me think of the people that would never remove their bluetooth, not even during meetings or dates. That fad is GONE. And it was always rude. I use a wired headset in the car, and a normal phone everywhere else. Call me old fashioned.
I have excessively more blazers than suits, but this wasnt always the case. I used to abhor the concept of the jacket not matching the pants. At one time, I had over 100 suits, and no blazers/sport coats at all. This was when I was primarily a church musician, and would wear a suit several times a week. As I started to play more and more professional gigs, I was made aware that suits were not appropriate attire for musicians. In most cases, the dress code was...
Wow, I didnt even look at the price. The Isotoners I linked look better than most and are $20 with shipping. Farm & Fleet has some off brand for $12. I used to buy them at WalMart for $10.
I couldnt tell you specifically. My cousin used to live right off the Arlington Heights exit, and several times visiting him I spent a day or so exploring the area. So they would have been off Arlington Heights road within a few miles of 90/94. At the time I was looking for ceiling fans, not clothes, so I didnt pay them much attention.
I've been wearing these for years, and all of my cloth, leather, reptile, suede, etc shoes still look brand new (except for the creases): I'm talking Wisconsin/Minnesota/Illinois winters.
