Being excessively styled might be viewed negatively by some customers as they feel your focus is not only on your job, but on how you are perceived by other as well. Usually, this is from people who does not understand that being content with what you wear may result positvely in other fields, like work. I work closely with my firm's customers as well, and I try not to be overly styled and keep it quite CBD; navy/grey suits, some with faint patterns, white/blue shirts,...
I like darker laces, but the rest is awesome.
Smooth leather should not be waterproofed with spray IMO.
A few thin coats of polish is not endangering the leather, and there is no point in trying to remove it, as it will slowly diminish over time. The leather can still be conditioned and will develope a nice patina as long as you don't soak the leather in oil.
Nope, it is correct, just resoles are often limited to 2-3 times, while complete refurb at the manufacturer where the gemming is changed yields 5-6 resoles after what I've read. However, handwelted footwear are able to be recrafted as long as the holdfast and welt holds.
US is often 1 size larger than UK, and that is my observation regardin the 1k as well.
