This is my experience to a T. The only place I go that has a significant difference actually prices suits 15-20 higher than buying the same items separately. Wouldn't you know they do the best job of keeping them together!
Be very careful with using any kind of solvent - including alcohol. You can dry out the surface pretty quickly and (especially if the shoes are vintage) you can end up with cracking in short order. Been there, done that.You're basically trying to remove the polish. The conservative approach is going to be to rub it off over time. Warming up the surface gently will make the polish more likely to come off with a rag (but don't get the rag going so fast that you end up...
Ugh, I wish. That would be too awesome, and a real chance to save a downtown mall. No, techincally they are in 'Tosa. The Rack is at a new shopping center way out Burleigh & Hwy 45. The Nordstroms is going to be at Mayfair. I was wondering if that mall was having serious hard times, because they had emptied an entire wing right after Christmas. Just sheet rock covering at least 20 store fronts. They are extending the building out into the parking lot, and adding a parking...

Pics would help, as would indications of what you'll wear these with. Generically though, I've got mid/dark grey hats with black, with matching (not really an option for you) and with greyish brown bands. All look good. The darker grey hats will be more forgiving I think.I doubt that you're going to get those out completely. You might be able to flatten them out and use some leather product (Lexol, Venetian, something similar) to condition the leather and try to convince...
That SC is hot GMMcL. I suspect, though, that if it won't work for you, it won't work for me. I'm less and less a 40, and closer and closer to a 42 after this long winter.On another note, I have a sweet Brook Bros Golden Fleece suit that I grabbed recently and have finally taken some pics of.
