Does the effect of sun fading work without heat? I once had a pair of sneakers that went from navy blue to an almost light greyish/purple after one hot day at the beach. Would the same effect work if a garment was left in a window in a cool apartment/house? I'd like to fade a wool garment but I don't want to risk shrinking it from the heat.

I am pretty sure its the sun. You won't lose anything by leaving it at a window and it fades to your taste. If your that worried about the heat, you can make a heat sink with a water container, but it may fragment the light from the sun.

is there a women's equivalent to sf?
post #14240 of 16571

my sincere apologies in advance for a beginner's question, but i have to ask:

 

1. why is it a fashion faux pas to wear black suits? 

 

 

"Quoted from Styleforum 101":

  1. The only men who should wear black suits during the day are priests, undertakers, secret agents, funerals attendees and yokels.

2. what allows the 'Saphir Renovateur' shoe polish to command a premium over the usual Kiwi polish? will the polish last longer? less damage to the shoe? or? 

 

3. Are YSL shoes not durable at all? the sole has a leather-like material, but was ruined within 2 weeks of wearing it (it's super slippery even on normal floors now..)

 

4. "Shoes made of better leather will keep getting better as they age. A classic pair is a wise investment." - how do they keep getting better? how do i identify excellent leather vs good/average leather?

1. Black suits in traditional cuts are not good, this is true. Black suits in a "fashion" cut are okay and not interchangeable.
2. Saphir is one of the better polishes, yes.
3. It depends. You don't even know if it's leather...
4. Read the leather quality thread on the other side

Not really the type of questions you'd expect from someone who's been around for 2 years...

That is terrible advice most colours go with black, something like a drakes fairisle scarf would work perfectly.

pretty high. full grain is best: http://www.waskerd.com/leather.html
and then nappa is kind of an advertising buzzword but it does mean something afaik: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nappa_leather

I buy thick-shouldered hangers from the Container Store for my coats, blazers, and leathers. One type of their suit hangers have narrower shoulders than the others, so it's best to go see them in person if you have a Container Store near you.

Ive heard that if they get really wet (like you get caught in an unexpected down poor) then to fill the inside of the shoe with crumpled up balls of news paper and let them sit somewhere to dry out.  

Suede shoes are better if you let 'em get a little beaten up.

don't worry about it.
