Just ordered a suit hanger and garment bag for my upcoming Kent Wang MTM suit, as well as a belt spinner. Seems like good stuff. nod[1].gif

For those out there, using a cotton ball is probably the best little things ever to apply both cream and wax

Me shining my shoes with my son while watching cartoons. Hopefully in a year or two he can just shine them for me. He doesn't quite yet have the coordination (or attention span) required to raise a proper shine. Now just need to put laces back in and toss them in their shoe bags and they're ready to go for next week.







Kirby, do we need to cross-post on Facebook to get the $25 off $50 promo code or is just posting here sufficient?

To keep the color of these 5 year old Lobb Museum Calf shoes, I alternate polishings with a neutral cream and a medium brown cream. I don't want to build up too much color or it darkens the leather and you loose the Museum Calf's character. Yet using only neutral will result in cloudiness in the darker brown areas or creases. I also give it some medium to dark brown wax from time to time but not every polish.

There seems to be a correlation between shoe shining and drinking wine...

Hopefully it is a positive one.

Fine things should be appreciated and in unison.

From dieworkwear

Once a year, men gather in Paris as members of the Swann Club, an invitation-only social club named in honor of the Proust hero who epitomized elegance and romanticism. Their annual nighttime soiree begins with a great meal, some port and cigars, and then moves to what they all came for. After dinner, guests remove their shoes, take out their tins of wax polish, and clear the tables. With only stockings on their feet, they wrap fine Venetian linens around their fingers, dip them in Dom Perignon, and begin to shine their shoes. Lightly chilled dry champagne, they believe, is better than water since the alcohol helps remove the extra fat in the polish, thus enhancing their shoes’ color and transparency.

I'm down to nothing but Piper Heidsieck... The struggles of youth are potent over here.

The best I have ever found is linen from Italy. It is the same linen Berluti uses for their Swann Club. Once you get the leather conditioned, the pores open up and the texture of the linen allows you to really work in creams and waxes. I would never be able to do that with a cotton ball.
