Sweet! I was actually looking for some a while back, but they are out of my size. I check back every so often to see if there are any returns or restock.

Meermin leather "bubbling."

Hi all,

I wore these double monks outside for the first time today with a pair of galoshes and accidentally stepped into a pile of snow that was ankle deep. I went right inside, removed the galoshes, and noticed bubbling at the section right above where the golashes sit on the shoe. I patted the shoe down to try and remove any excess water then put shoe trees in them for about five hours. After that, I put some Meltonian polish on and brushed them but the spots are still there. The spots must be from the snow/salt, as these are brand new shoes (worn for the sixth day today, and only an hour outside with galoshes).

Any idea how to remove the spots?

Thanks for any recommendations you may have.

^ The polish will fill in all the pores. Looks like you want to open the pores up instead and let them air out. Try mink oil/saphir rejuvie/similar product.

Hi all!

 

I just purchased a watch, a Triwa Lansen Chrono in Rose Gold. I have dark skin so i figured it should have good contrast without being to gaudy. Im looking for a brown leather watch strap that might look good on it, does anyone have any suggestions? Also, any do's and don'ts for the watch color with pairing clothes? Thanks a bunch!

 

Watch for reference

That sweater is awesome. See how it looks with a solid light blue shirt and a tie. I like sweaters with ties a lot.

Incotex make great shorts actually but not many places carry them.

what is your opinion about welted breast pocket in a jacket with patch pockets? Incongruent?
I like patch pockets but I can't stand patch breast pockets..

Would you ever let Nordstrom's shoeshine folks do your suede? I brought in 4 shoes to my local nordstrom and the suede came back looking the same. I tend to cross my legs and the outside of the uppers contact the ground to the point that they have discolored a bit(from chocolate to light gray/brown.When I picked them up, those areas didn't change. Obviously the calf-skin looked great, but I was a bit disappointed by the work.

 

Is it just me or do mainly Filipino men work at their stands? 3 of the ones I've been to have had Filipino shoeshine men. Very curious.

They did a great job on my suede. The gentleman taking care of my shoes was a tatted white guy. Maybe tattoos and lighter skin are the key to getting your suede looking great?

Patch pockets with flaps -> Welted breast pocket
Patch pockets without flaps -> Patch breast pocket
Patch pockets with pleats -> Pleated patch breast pocket

Patch pockets without flaps and welted breast pocket looks unbalanced.  If you must mix the two, get flaps on your patch pockets.

So I recently bought these boots but everyone I know at school keeps saying that they look AWFULL...They dont mean that the boots dont match with the rest of my clothes because i know how to match them properly, they simply mean that the boots are ugly. I spent lots of money on them so I want to know what you think... here is a picture...thank you. (ps the picture shows a newer version of the boots, my boots do not have that piece of leather that is used to wrap the shoelaces around the boot. Also my boots are slightly less shiny than they appear in this picture)

This, though I'm not categorically opposed to open patches and welted breast pockets. Really not fond of patch breast/flapped patch hip pockets.
