It tends to do a pretty good job on whites,...
Thanks to strikezoom--great Polo pants and even better service. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon.

I hate spending a lot on belts, and while I've had some luck at TJ Maxx/Marshalls/Ross, I find that belts from there are a crapshoot whereas with AE I know I'm getting quality.

I think the shoes will be off to Alden soon to be worked on. I sometimes stand for long periods of time in my dress shoes so this modified last is a god send. Next time I'm standing...

The shoes that Alden makes for Moulded Shoe say Conformal Shoe Company inside the heel. This is a modified last shoe--I have the same shoe except in a mid/light brown scotch grain leather. I don't think it is reindeer, rather scotch grain calf. Good pickup for $45...
One other fragrance that hasn't been mentioned that I own and wear frequently is Guerlain's Mandarine Basilic from their Aqua Allegoria series. It is, as its name implies, a very potent orange with a herbal/basil scent with good longevity. You should also consider it!
Quote: Originally Posted by bananananana I think the Indy's toe is low enough where you can just use regular shoe trees. It's not bulbous like RW's so I don't think a boot tree with a more sloping crown would do that much more. +1 I simply use normal cedar shoe trees with good results.
Quote: Originally Posted by philosophe Folks, be careful with alcohol withdrawal. It can be very dangerous. When in doubt, taper down. +1 to this. I will also say that if you are a very heavy drinker and looking to stop you should definitely talk to your doctor--there are prescriptions available that can help immensely!
Been on a big L'artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu kick as of late. I loved my samples, so I bought a bottle which I then hated, and now I'm totally smitten by it again. Hopefully it continues!
