Saphir Renovateur.
post #20132 of 31160
Saphir is somewhat the gold standard, but the AE stuff isn't bad. Much easier to find, as well...

I use the AE stuff.  It's fine and you can get free delivery right from them.  Not the best in the world I'm sure, but does the job.

What are the differences between Saphir wax, creme, and Reno? Are there any no-nos as far as applying any of those to different leather types (calf or shell) goes? Where should I start with my shoe polishing, as someone who's only ever used AE shoe cream?

Any way to determine content of a sport coat that is unmarked?  I have a coat that feels like cashmere but it is older bespoke and unmarked content.

As far as my experiences, the reno is used to help moisturize the shoes. I use it once every 2-3 polishes but I think some people use it even less then me. Its fantastic and will help ease the creases and re-plenish them. The creme is fantastic and is regarded as one of the best shoe cremes available. Occasionally I will add a layer of Saphir wax as well to add an extra shine. Check out "The Hanger Project" for complete product information. Cheers.

Hi everyone. I'm new here (even though I've been lurking for a while). Today after class I headed over to J Crew to try on a blazer which I believe was the Ludlow Wool one in 38R. The quality and construction seemed fine to me; chest, shoulders, arms, everything fitted very nicely. I just had some apprehension about the length of the blazer: it seemed a little too long, even though according to J Crew size chart I should precisely wear a 38R. Any thought on this?

Prick Stitching & Pin Stripes

 

Normal?
 

Too much on the eye?
 

Any rules?

I would avoid prick stitching, but pick stitching is fine if it is subtle.

Thanks. I just learned BE is prick stitching (I know, I know...) and AE is pick stitching.

Should I wear this belt with my business suit?

If you've already purchased it, then no. The buckle is too casual and an even bigger problem is the obvious branding, which though never good, is in especially poor taste in business environments.

 

If you've not already purchased it, then don't purchase it.

 

Apologies for the acerbity of my tone...just....such branding really rubs me the wrong way.

I wouldnt think so seeing as though one of their services is replacing the soles. As long as the cobbler doesn't screw up the rubber half sole, you should be fine.

You should probably post this in the tailors thread (http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions) but if you were asking me (and i am no expert) it looks long to me and the button stance seems a little low.
