I guess a tutorial is the most helpful overall, but I do find it very helpful to have a short video included to show certain techniques.  Sometimes words can't do it justice.

There are COUNTLESS tutorials in this thread:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc/0_30

just need time to browse.

There is one, and only one way to get that shine, and that way is called Spit Shine.

There are tons of tutorials in that thread and lots of other places. I just like reading about shoe care in general - not sure why I like it as much as I do, but I do - and I'm not even that much into getting a spit shine. Reading about it also motivates me to go condition/polish my own shoes.

There's a reason that shoe care thread has 6584 posts. You could shut down that thread after the first few pages smile.gif

i think so only because the Galway could be worn in any occasion, including most formal ones. Construction, value, etc are different matters all together..

I wouldn't ever say your taste in shoes needs improving, it's just different. The complete opposite of the spectrum from pb and his black shoes.

PB, don't you only wear black shoes? black shoes and charcoal/black trousers, both free of almost any adornment or as some would call it, personality? would you also agree that these two colors complement your complexion and also impress upon your coworkers/friends a particular image unique to you. so why then would you wear Justins combos? afterall,you both have different personalities, professions, networks, etc.

Well said, it's all about the image we want to portray, I am back to black shoes mainly again.
