Fellow SF residents, can anyone recommend a good place to repair (fix, topy etc.) some shoes? I'm hesitant to take my nicer shoes to some random guy in Chinatown. I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
They don't look too bad that short, but they would still look better if they were the right length. I see no benefit to wearing floods. Don't think I've ever seen anyone in person pull it off, except maybe the Thom Browne or bow tie crowd.

Thanks, yes. It's the only place I had seen them, but they don't have my size in #8. Looking for black or #8. Appreciate it though. They will get more in due time, from what they told me.

I agree. The Aberdeen is by far the best looking Alden last, IMO. A fair point regarding the toe box. Would be nice to see...
Agreed, a horsehair brush is precisely what you need. There must have been some sort of misunderstanding. I use one to polish my CJs (and every other pair of shoes that I own, except the shell cordovan ones).
