Do you flex your foot a lot?

I haven't sprayed a protectant on my suede five-zip, but I sprayed another suede jacket. I don't know if I would ever wear these out in the rain, tbh, but I think the protectant helps keep stains away (maybe from a spill or something).

FWIW, I spoke to a cleaning expert who said spraying these things at home can be dangerous, since a glob of that stuff can spit out and stain the jacket. Prob best to heed that person's advice, but since I haven't had any issues spraying suede shoes in the past, I took a chance on my jacket (and it turned out fine). The alternative would be to give the jacket to a professional, who would apply a protectant, but that's usually best done after a cleaning job (as I understand it). I was a little wary of getting dirt stains and whatnot on my suede jacket before the first big cleaning job, so I took my chances.

How can I get my Lemaire on without going Lemaire? A lot of the older season stuff I'm after is hard to come by second hand.

 

 

 

 

So far I've been keeping an eye on Margaret Howell, Comoli, Yaeca, Yantor, Trove, Auguste Presentation, A Vontade, Edwina Horl, Digawel - who else should be on my radar?

Maybe some older season Ervell?  It's not a 1:1 ratio, but there are similarities in cut and color.

Maybe E.Tautz, Umit Benan, Lucio Vanotti, Second Layer, and Deveaux?

Never put any protector on the suede A-1 that I got from TOJ. Have got caught in the rain a few times with it and have worked fine to just use a suede brush afterwards to remove the rain spots.

@hayaoyamaneko Hed Mayner, Umit Benan, Lucio Vanotti, A Kind Of Guise... all have similarities.

Sissi Goetze does some Lemaire esque things http://goetze.xyz/

post #12295 of 15171

Thanks for the recs all.

 

@nicelynice do you know if Honor Gathering is cut for the JP market, ie. shorter sleeves? I've seen you post about them before, wondering if I should size up on shirts to get more of a tunic effect? The P2P on the shirts I'm looking at seems pretty slim...

I'm having a similar problem where the leather gets separated from the sole at a similar spot across 3 diff pair of boots so far. Not sure if the boots are too small or the age.

is the leather tearing?  If it is, it could easily be the size.  If it's the stitching disintegrating, that is another thing.  

 

I find that a lot of guys are wearing shoes that a a half to full size small.  Your toes should never reach the end of a shoe.  They are usually designed to have between 1/2" of space in the toe, and for elongated toe boots, often a bit more.  

 

Or, so guys just bend the sole more as they walk.  That flexing eventually takes its toll.  There is no solution for that.  Maybe the solution is to only wear sneakers or something with a super flexible sole, like sneakers or a crepe sole.

Yeah but the more space you leave at the end of the shoe, the more spiders can fit
