Here is my Shoe Shine Sunday photo.  I tried to make it into an activity for my toddler (2.5 yrs) but that didn't go so well. Still, as you can see, I got a pretty good shine.

Photo is a touch over exposed from the bright sun light coming from the window.

we just added the Ebony. Fantastic box. However, my personal favorite remains the Groom Kit. About half the size, I find that it is enough for me.

I received my presidential shine kit and I must say, the renovator is amazing! Now I just need practice using the wax.
Thanks for packing the wax in a ziplock bag, I need to remember not to order waxes during the hot summer.

Out of curiosity, can the reno be used on alligator skin watch straps? If not, is there a product that is recommended for reptile hide?

Just launched an overview of different Leather Types and their respective care concerns.

This is a first draft. Let me know what you guys think.

Proper shoe care is so specific to the type of material used, I felt that this guide was necessary.

I have purchased a lot of things from Kirby over the past year, but thought I would give a quick "thumbs up" for the Digital Velocity V100 Iron.  I have used it about a dozen times, so I can't speak to long term durability, but I can say it is well worth the difference in price over a standard $50 iron.  The steam is very consistent, I have not had any drip problems, and my shirts look extremely crisp when finished. 

 

The only slight negative is the positioning of the digital controls.  They sit on the handle, so the first time I used the iron, I kept hitting the off button.  Once you get used to it, problem solved.

Thanks, Europrep! The Digital Velocity is a fantastic iron for a hand-held. The big thing that really differentiates this iron is that it has a separate heating element inside the iron that generates the steam. Most irons generate steam when the water makes content with the heated sole plate. The result it better steam and no spitting.

However, my favorite obsession are their pressure irons. These things produce so much steam I couldn't stop laughing the first time I used it. And we just begun carrying a 220v version of their Up-Air and Vacuum Board. Another essential for someone really serious about their ironing.

Kirby,

I've really been enjoying your OTC 830 socks all summer long but I must say I've had a hard time with holes. I think out of my ~6 pairs, almost each sock has been darned at least once. I'm not sure if it is the trade off with them being so sheer or maybe the fact that I put at least 8 miles on them per wear.. I rotate them with about 4 different pairs of shoes and I even safety-pinned one of each pair near the top to try and make sure I alternate which foot their on. Nothing really helped. (I did try to follow your advice on avoiding holes as well, it helped some.) Hopefully next summer I can get a whole new line up and give each pair less wear? Do you the the 920 would be any stronger? Also any chance you'll do a limited run in silk for black-tie rigs?

Hello, reposting this from a separate thread as it was pointed out to me this is probably the best place to ask.


I was planning on just getting a tie rack, but was deterred by the $50 shipping that the hanger project would charge, but as stuff on amazon is outrageously expensive, I figure I might just get it from Kirby Allison and get some suit/overcoat hangers since I'm paying the $50 in shipping anyways and it doesn't seem to increase even if I add more stuff. Think it went up like $5 when I quadrupled the size of my order

So.... I wear 44 long (from Ede&Ravenscroft if that makes a difference),and I was planning on getting a few suit hangers and a hanger of my overcoat.

Kirby recommends 17 inch hangers for jackets up to size 44, but when I measure my jackets I get closer to 19.3 inches, and for my overcoat more like 20.1 inches.

Obviously the 44 long overcoat isn't made to be 44 long, but rather to fit a guy who's 44 long, therefore it's made to fit over a 44 long suit, so it makes sense for that measurement to be off, but when kirby recommends 17 inches for a 44 and I get 19.3 inches I'm worried that I'm screwing up the measurement or that there's something weird with either his recommendation or the sizing of my suits.

So I'm wondering, for those who have had his hangers before, how did you find the sizing? Did you buy based on his recommendation for suit sizes? If so how did it end up fitting, was the recommendation accurate?

Does anyone have any tips for me to figure this out? I'd hate to spend money and find out I got the wrong size when the stuff arrives.

Thanks
Silverfox
