I managed to answer my own question: F Flittner (near Moorgate station) did an excellent job, at only 16 quid.

Was hoping that there would be a London equivalent to the near ubiquitous shoe shine stands one finds in NY, Chicago, etc. I guess they just don't exist...
I am going to be working in London for the next few months. Where can one get a decent shoe shine in the City? I work near Bank station. My google and forum searches did not yield a definitive answer on the subject. Many thanks everyone.
I will be working in London for the next three months or so, and am in need of a good, reliable barber. Would like to keep it under or around 30GBP if possible. I work near London Bridge station, but anywhere easily accessible by tube is fine with me. Bonus points if they're open on Saturday, as I often work long hours during the week and have trouble getting away during the day. Any recommendations? Thanks everyone.

Apparently the Polo store on Michigan Avenue "didn't get many of the basics this season" according to the SA. They did have weird looking shorts in bright pink and purple however if I was interested in those...
I've been looking to get a pretty basic pair of RL shorts (the prospect tissue chino) in a size 30, but they've been sold out in all the colours I'm interested in (navy, sand and white) for almost 2 months. I could understand if this was a one-off item, but would think they would restock basics more often. Anybody here have any experience with this?

Good idea, that's along the lines of what I was thinking. I'm only running twice a week right now anyway, I hit the bike for ~18-20 miles the other two days to minimize knee/shin impact and just to keep things interesting.
