Google is of no real help, since I have no idea to distinguish between noise and truth.

I know that it's probably not the best place to ask the question, but I'll give a short question as an answer. Why? I know of some that prefer this method, but most cite the ritual of doing it as the most enjoyable aspect. The equipment and the process are fun in theory, but are a hassle in everyday life. There are plenty of people that enjoy the hobby as much as the necessity (see 12345Michael's link), but I've never been able to fully embrace it due to the time and skills it takes to keep up with it, let alone some of the expense.

If you're looking for an alternative to disposable razors, try out a safety razor. It's not complicated to learn, you have a wide array of luxury tools to purchase and you have inexpensive blades to swap in your expensive shaver.

I've personally found it to irritate my skin less and to get a closer shave as I can control the angles better. Just my .02.

Might be a little late...

But is this jacket half or full canvassed? Who is it made by? And is $450 a decent price for this?

Half-canvassed, made by Corneliani.

The less lining in the jacket, the cooler it wears. Half lining in pants is particularly good for scratchy materials like tweed.

I have a 'this or that' question. Looking to buy either Yuketen's Kiltie Blucher or Angler Moc shoes. Which ones should I get?

Really can't go wrong with either but I do love both the white and black leather JPs. Works with jeans or chinos.

Getting married in July.  Groomsmen are wearing Charcoal Suits, White shirts, white p square black shoes.  bridesmaids are in 'hyper-purple' dresses.  inbetween magenta and purple is best way to describe it. 

 

Asheville, NC wedding @ 5pm - inside a fantastically old church. 

 

 

What color grenadine tie? or shepherd's check?

Typical (affordable) Mall store for someone with athletic build (15" drop)?  In particular looking for pants that fit/won't rip.  32" waist, 26.5" quads, 40" hips.  Unfortunately I rip pants monthly it would appear even though they're baggy in the groin area, unfortunately they balloon up when I walk/sit and just look weird if I buy something to fit my legs/butt.

How is the fit of Polo Ralph Lauren shorts?

 

Anyone who knows?

Help a newbie shoe-polisher out: try as I may, my brown Wingtips end my polishing session with a matte and somewhat sticky finish. What is the cause of this? Is this normal for some shoes... have I bought a pair of 'matte' shoes that won't get shiny?

 

My technique is perfect for my other pairs of shoes: they all end up wonderfully smooth and shiny and look exactly as I hope. This one pair, though: nothing seems to help.

 

Am I missing something obvious? Is there something I can do to buff up 'matte' finish shoes?

 

(I don't really know how to describe the shoes any better than this, so my apologies. If I need to provide more information please ask me specific questions so I can provide you with suitable answers.)

 

Thanks...

You're probably better off asking this in the official shoe care thread.

Ah, thank you. I didn't see that thread so this looked like the most appropriate place. I'll post this on that thread now.
