Not sure whether you want to know the names of more tailors or opinions on these two. If you had used the 'search' facility you would have found a thread of some size dedicated to Chan. Edwin and Matthew de Boise have a good name by all accounts although I have neither patronised them nor even seen an example of their wares in the cloth.

Just polish then with an appropriate coloured polish regularly: All these other unctions and potions are a waste of money, the shoes will readily outlast their welcome without the pampering as suggested here.
Not worth fretting about if that is the worst you have.
What is wrong with skin that it has to be covered so? Skin is natural and it is almost inevitable that it can be seen. I don't wear socks at all and no one has any problem with that; if anyone thinks me eccentric, good on them![COLOR]
