My nose is not much use on perfumes.I can't get sillage, dry down, longevity smells on myself. So I rely on others, like CD, who seem to understand. And Luca's ratings.
I don't own any - I'm probably not the target demographic. But I've inspected them closely and know others who have them. Quality is as good as you'll get anywhere at around +/- the price point.
Chance find at Opshops. I can't remember when I last (small shoe pun) paid more than $5 for shoe trees.I've got weird vintage ones, aluminium ones, tin ones, plastic ones and wooden ones - some varnished - some with weird screw and spring arrangements like steam punk - All good.I should pull them all out one day and take a pic

This will be modified by many things, not the least being body type ( heavy or light) , height, time of day, context etc.Darker shoes than...
Peaked vs notched is a bit of a non issue. Possible to argue peaked is slightly more "formal" But really all nuanced arguments are off point - the guy is a train wreck trying to look "casual" in an ill fitting worsted suit - he's neither fish nor fowl. He should lose the suit and wear jeans and sneakers and t shirt and 4 days growth like all the rest of the sloppy ABC staffers.
