Drops. Very nice ties...can't believe they're still here.

I can kind of buy into this but would counter that your bank account is probably perfectly safe. PayPal are some evil greedy fuckers but I don't think that even they are...
^^^I think you can "rub out"/remove built-up polish/wax with a good conditioner like Lexol. There is a ton of information about shoe care and antiquing in these threads, 1 & 2.
I really like that tie but it seems the total opposite end of the spectrum from your everyday solid or stripe...even farther out than the "neatness" of a Hermes or Ferragamo Panda pattern. Just saying. BTW, who makes that tie?
I agree with everyone else. The shoulders and chest are the hardest thing to get right and that jacket looks like it fits perfectly in those areas. Stylistic choice or not, your shirt and jacket sleeves really throw that suit into the "I'm in the middle of a growth spurt and will get a new suit when it's over" bin. Really, really bad IMO. And that is a very high button stance (but I like the fashionably high gorge). As far as the vents go, not the best work but I don't...

Still need to figure out/build a bigger/better storage system though...they're scattered in a couple different closets and underneath my desk
I'm pretty sure that RIDER uses a toothbrush for applying and finishes off with Lexol/conditioner and not polish or wax. Anyway, that's what I've been doing since reading about it here. The main thing is that you store your shoes in trees, keep them clean, and condition them regularly (3-4 X a year but I think Ron suggests every 2 weeks).

Yeah, I don't know, I'm not really a watch guy but those old 80's era Seiko Lasalles are the thinnest watches I've ever seen and my watch guy says that they have "the most beautiful movement he's ever seen", FWIW....
^^^Yes, exactly. That's basically what I was trying to say. I don't know what the stats are for SF but I'd bet there are hundreds if not thousands of unique visitors per day that come wandering through here via some kind of sartorial search on a search engine. Google any obscure brand or anything related to men's clothing like "best suit" or "suit construction" or "slim fit shirts" or whatever and SF and AAAC are always going to be in the top 5. Anyone searching about...
