Both of these look fucking atrocious

Can someone recommend some good shoe care products conditioner, polish, other??. I know nothing about this and am worried about putting something on my Ricards or Butteros that is going to damage or alter the look of the leather for the worse. tia

post #12201 of 12663
can anyone help me with some size advice for opening ceremony boots. there is a good deal on a pair of shoes that i like and are size 44, i wear a 10-10.5 US. 44 is generally a touch big on me. do OC shoes run small by chance?

Anyone know how Costume National suits are in terms of quality and fit? Perhaps in comparison to Rag & Bone or APC?
Are they generally pretty slim fitting? Are the materials and construction high quality?

The prices range in the 1000+ range (about on par with R&B) but they are on sale now online and im wondering whether its worth picking one up.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I remember from the PS thread that you own a pair of Ricards. I've concluded cream/no wax from what I've read so far with these. I found the Saphir cremes are available at Leffot. I have black Ricards and was wondering whether to get the Neutral creme or Black creme. (Worried the black might somehow be darker than the boots). What do you recommend? Is this the only product to get?

I was just going to ask the same thing, but for the barneys co-op house brand blazers and pants.
they have a grey wool prince of wales plaid blazer and pants online that look pretty good for the price, but i cant tell much about them because they dont show them on a real person, only show them seperately and only have a front view for each item.

Also, just noticed that they call the blazer "prince of whales sport coat"
they got it right on the pants though

2750s are canvas, while the portofinos have a linen upper. I have a pair of portofinos and love them, i think the linen makes them a great casual summer sneaker for wearing with shorts.

^ those are on sale for $38 at Endless Shoes, plus get 30% Bing Cashback right now.

edit: cashback doesn't apply to portofinos but it does to some other models. sizing is ultra limited too.

I would like to spend less than $80. Any suggestions?

Check RL 'rugby'. They look pretty snappy. 'cept for the db models...

I wouldn't consider either for semi-formal anything, sweetie. Or even wear them close to a tie, blazer, etc. Maybe jeans and chinos only if that style shoe was my thing. I just think they're essentially sneakers without a 'sneaker' look. Depending on your age, they also speak to me of trying to be too 'young'. And they scream 'bowling shoe' to me too. You may benefit from looking at a more 'adult' casual shoe with more structure and simple classic lines.

Have you tried Schott's lineup for 'racers'? (Don't need the horsehide unless you really ride) http://www.schottnyc.com/products/lifestyle/motorcycle

Those shoes say to me 'wear with shorts of light pants only', and also 'wear with no socks or white athletic ankle socks only'. As for matching with brown leather shoes, any casual brown leather or woven webbing/rope belt will work. Just avoid dress belts or you might as well wear black socks with those too.

Do you think switching to a darker color would increase the versatility? I've seen people recommend boat shoes for casual wear with jeans/khakis, but as I said, I could only get them in that color at the local store.

Not flamebait would like to know your opinion on why. Am genuinely curious

Thanks for the input! Well, I'm 27 so would it be considered
trying to be too young'? Trying to get something good from Clarks but if there is something that could be suggested in the same price range, would be much appreciated!
