hi, kind of silly question i guess, but any tips or product recommendation for cleaning a leather sneakers? no polishing like shoes right?

post #12335 of 16371

Lexol would work. It cleans without leaving a shine. But it might also make the leather absorb water more easily (?), or so I've read on SF. But apparently most conditioners have that effect (?)

It might also darken the sneaker (again ??) so spot test before applying it.

Do these shell cordovans look like that could be refurbished easily? Should I be worried about the discoloration on the insoles? Would they make good rain-shoes?
Yes, no, no.

I don't really care for Uniqlo belts even at that price. I've bought Polo ones discounted for about that much that have held up better.

I like canvas or ribbon belts for the warmer months. I wouldn't really wear them in the colder months.

Will try posting this again before I make a new thread..

I'm 6'3, 160-165 lbs, and it's impossible for me to find pants that fit me right. I've got a small chest (36" I believe) and bird legs from the thighs down. I run, and am in good shape, but I'm pretty sure that my crotch/thigh/top block/torso area is extremely awkward and disproportional to the rest of my body, throwing off the fit of everything I wear.

Everything I have tried on in the past year in my traditional size (32 x 34), doesn't fit me right, usually in the crotch/rise and thigh area.

I even bought a pair of Levi's 508 Taper Fit jeans, that are supposed to fit roomier in the top block. There is more room than normal, but I still wish there was more room in the crotch and thigh area. I'm still uncomfortable when I wear them. I long for shorts weather because I've come to feel pants are impossible for me.

Also, I bought a pair of Under Armour Compression-Short Type underwear, on the recommendation of many here to prevent bulging, and I also wanted something that stayed close to my leg, so when I'm wearing jeans pants, they aren't just flying all over the place where I have to adjust the legs all of the time. However, they seem to have the opposite effect on me, and because they compress they create more bulge when I'm wearing casual/workout shorts. And I'm not comfortable with them in jeans at times because they almost hug me too much. Any ideas/recommendations?

Can any experts or tall guys weigh in? How do you deal with this issue? Buy a bigger pair of pants in the waist and tailor everything?

boss i gave you the answer buy pants with a higher rise and measure your actual thighs and make sure the pants have +0.5 more than your actual thighs.

you can then sag the pants to the feeling level you like.

the shoes look like a good buy but do not ruin a beautiful pair of cordovan shoes for just rainy day only i mean with some work those babies will be better than your regular footwear most likely.

It rains almost everyday here in Vancouver. I'll never get a chance to wear nice shoes otherwise. :-(
But I guess I'll get a pair of dedicated rain boots instead. But if it just happens to rain while I'm wearing my cordovans, will I at least have the piece of mind of knowing that the cordovan leather can withstand light rain?

I don't think I would have too much of an issue wearing those in rain as long as I didn't pay north of $100 for them.

yes but your supposed to let it dry naturally by itself and its not recommended to wear it in a row especially if its raining.

Hello there,

 

I have this shirt and I have no idea what pants I could/should wear with it. Do any of these pants work? (two chinos and a pair of jeans.)

 

 

Thanks a lot! I appreciate the help I've gotten on these forums.
