I have a question about a brand called "Buttonhole." Specifically: Does anyone have any info about it. As you might imagine, Googling is a nightmare.
I bought a Harris Tweed sportcoat at a Goodwill today with this brand. The jacket is nice enough - it has working buttonholes. I suspect it's not a super-great jacket or anything, but the tweed is pretty and it fits me nicely. Mostly I'm just curious. Attached is a photo of the logo. Thanks for any help you can give!

The short answer to this question is that it doesn't work like that. The long answer is that button arrangement doesn't really affect formality (or where it falls on the magic Vox sliders), though there are garments that traditionally have certain types of buttoning associated with them (three buttons for a 100% traditional English hunting jacket, one button for a tux).
Navy is fine, and lighter blue than navy is also fine, but you want to make sure the fabric has some texture to it. Glen plaid is not typically recommended for odd jackets. Make sure you choose something from a jacketing fabric book and not a suiting book.
I got a bit excited after my first delivery of Saphir wax, and realized that I applied it too quickly/frequently to one pair of my boots. There's slight cracking of the wax on the heel counter and the toe. Would Saphir Reno be able to "reset" this and allow me to start over with my application of the wax?
Also, to avoid this in the future, how long should I spend polishing each coat of wax, and how long should I wait for each coat to dry? I'm certain that those were my two mistakes, as I actually applied very little wax per coat.
Kill 2 birds- take it to the cleaners. If it's 2 separate ties, if you must iron a tie you can either hang it and steam it with your iron to accelerate the natural process of wrinkle releasing while a garment is hanging, or for a really bad wrinkle you might use an ironing cloth and steam it a touch through the cloth. Don't use any pressure and contact the iron cloth as little as possible, just light bumps through the cloth and a little touch of steam. For a stained tie- cleaners. If you don't have a good cleaner and this is your favorite tie, look into http://tiecrafters.com/. Never used myself, but it might be an option.
I don't know if this is the best way- but I've done it and never had any problems.
