I have THIS ONE and it is definitely not shiny. Not even close to the shine in the pictures. It's completely flat in color.
To echo what AFC said....I work in an office that is heavily cooled due to computing/server power. I also frequent meetings/offices on campus that are both normal temperature AND a significant walking distance away...but the walking commute is all indoors. I would like to have something that I wear just at my desk or in my particular office that can quickly be removed, which is why the button/zip option is necessary. Certainly I wear v-neck or other similar sweaters...

I'm not sure what kind/type/style I like and am hoping to try a bunch before purchasing anything. I'm reminded here of WarbyParker eye glasses..where you can effectively rent 5 pairs for a week to see what you like. Ideally I would find 2-3 that I like, with at least one for daily notes/office work and one for handwritten notes. Your thoughts or...
AE "polish" isn't wax, right?
Has anyone been able to achieve the high gloss/mirror shine with just the AE "premium polish"? Or did you have to use carnuba wax?
