post #9316 of 13589

Here come's the picture that I promised RDiaz. It is taken in the middle of my first try to achieve a mirror shine. The toe and heel was done, but I just finished up the rest of the shoe with moderate shine so it didn't have the big contrast change that it has in the picture.

Looking good. I never manage to get such a nice shine on my shoes, must be doing something wrong. But still unsure about that last, looks a bit... uninteresting, don't know how to put it. Guess I'll need to see it in person, which ain't that hard smile.gif

Thanks. I followed Lear's advice that he posted in the big Shoe Care Thread on one of thr first 10 pages. It's quite long but really simple.

Regarding the last so yeah, it's kind of boring. But that was one of the reasons I fell for it. It becomes more versatile then (according to myself so it's nothing proved or generally acknowledged). Plus the fact that the shoes, heel steel caps and a container Saphir Pate de Luxe only cost me €204 including shipping.

Was going to wear either a solid brown or blue tie, but it looked too boring.

Yep. It was nothing like summer this morning.

OK I'll play.

 

 

 

Better shots of the shirt cuff and tie so you can see what the colours and textures really are -

 

 

 

 

The shirt is actually intended for casual wear, but I felt I could live with those unstructured collars for the sake of this colour match.

 

Fire away.

Kill all of that with fire... except maybe the suit

Should I throw myself on the pyre at the end?

post #9328 of 13589

Hahahaha, no! But seriously, that tie is dreadful... hank could maybe work in another context and folded in a different way, and the shirt has too short collar points, plus I'm not sold on the herringbone pattern (but that's just me maybe).

Tie is Paul Smith. It was left behind by a client (I don't know which one). I kinda liked it so I made it mine. How is it dreadful?

 

Square is Zegna I think - I forgot - fold didn't quite work out right, looks too much like a bird of paradise. But I kind of like the sharp points.

 

I am seriously into the tangerine colour of this shirt. Would be nice to get it in a more formal material, of course.

 

What I was looking for in this ensemble was a mix of subtly different patterns and colours, with a single point of ostentatious dandyism in the square.
