Ach, suspected as much. Thanks gents.

*the metal stays are still a rip at alotta places + the differing sizes for some shirts is a PITA, imo. Oh well.

I bought a package of around 32 metal collar stays, in various sizes on eBay from this seller. Quite cheap and you can pick and choose lengths.

I made the switch from metal to mother of pearl.  Mother of pearl are the best in my opinion with thickness, great weight and smooth.  There is an eBay seller I highly recommend

Sorry I've been so late to reply. I use nano spray on suede about once every 6-8 weeks and it's been perfect for rain but I've never gotten salt on suede.

Venetian I have for Horween but I use almost never since the leather is so oily and I don't believe it repels water or anything.

The product I use on my kudu and scotch grain winter boots is Montana. I used to use Obenauf on my red wings but switched to Montana for my Carmina winter boots. I wipe them when I get to work or get home and they look perfect.

Does anyone have any winter boot recommendations to be worn with a suit? I was thinking about getting these from meermin because the salt is sure to destroy them soon enough and I don't want to spend too much:

Does anyone have any experience with these in winter? Or any other recommendations?

Just found a brand that is not very popular on this forum. Yanko, the former Carmina shoes company. They should be one touch below Carmina and 25% cheaper. Anyone has experience with Yanko shoes?

Pretty sure there's a whole thread on the subject on this forum.

Any recommendations on places to grab a couple decent quality dress belts? Looking for something to match Alden Tan and Color 8. Hoping to spend about $50 each.

Not sure about the color but Club Monaco has some quality made in Italy dress belts and I love them so much. Around your budget as well.

I wear this one with Alden 8. It's not shell but the colour is really close.

@LeatherFoot is there any Carmina or C&J new fall boot styles en route?
post #4110 of 4440

Does anyone have a recommendation for a nylon jacket similar to this one, up to ~$400 CAD? Doesn't have to have an inner liner. I just don't want to shell out $2K+ for a nylon jacket at BB lol....
