@Murlsquirl can tell you how comfortable it is. smile.gif

 

 

Oh yeah, they are wonderful.  I'll send a pair to anyone who wants them. 

 

This thread makes my head hurt.

It's not everyone. It's one.

The relative quiet of this and the WAYWRN thread has provided some motivation to go back and make my way through the Good Taste thread. Great read for people looking for some SF-engaged diversion, but it too will make your head hurt.

Caustic and Shugz, you both showed very well there.

I recently got a pair of navy suede espadrilles that have been surprisingly versatile.

I am suspicious of "versatile".  This is Styleforum.  I fear that versatile use of espadrilles might include at best inferior options and at worst, SF crimes!  

 

"But spectators would be better..." is echoing around many of the scenes in my brain.  Please note that I am a reactionary and intend this to be good natured.  Whether it is advice is really optional.

Also one's pride, likely as not.

No, but the void has been filled in a way that suggests we should rename this thread, the Caustic Advice Thread.

Somehow, in the interval of going to the drugstore for five minutes, I returned and found bird shit on both my necktie and (suede) shoes. Perfect line of trajectory, and from some strange class of bird with yellow egg yolk type excrement.

 

I managed to blot most of it off. The necktie has some residue on it. Luckily, nothing greasy.

It's a porous printed linen tie. I blotted with a damp cloth and now made a mound of baking soda on top, which I plan to check in the morning. The flakes look a bit encrusted though -- might have to be peeled off with tweezers or something.

 

Any cleaning tips? The shoes I rubbed down with a crepe eraser and also put a mound of baking soda. I can just take those to the shoe cleaners. Not so sure about the tie.

Are you in the U.S.?  If so and your home remedies fail there's always Tie Crafters.  They charge $17.00 plus postage, however, so it depends on how much the tie is worth to you.

Sorry to hear that.  I've only used them for shortening.

Ah, that should be easy.

 

It was a good suggestion, though.

 

I believe I did tie width, and it was not good.
