Are they full grain? Sounds like you're meaning polished leather.

here's a couple pics.  you can see that it was a shiny burnished or polished leather.  but now with all the scoffing (i was in a very crowded environment for a few hours), its lost much of the shine.  being that they are new (never polished since I bought them), i just want to do it right....

YEah, dude, you just need to polish your shoes. There's a number of different ways to do it, and you can find endless tutorials online. If you want that shiny mirror finish, just google it.

You are making this WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY more complicated than it is.
As stated, polish your shoes.

Follow Caustic Man's advice if you want a super technical way to go about it!

That you should eat a burger and get rid of that terrible haircut.

 

If you're looking for a slimmer shirt, then that's not it.

STOP the madness upcoming. Gotta give you the fortitude to keep coming back for more though. Could be youth ignorance though...

 

I WANT YOU to tell us what YOU PERSONALLY think about it.

and again your belt is still too long:brick:

Trolls don't have personal opinions.

What sort of blazer/sportcoat (colour/fabric) would work best with these trousers? Thanks!

 

1) Dusty blue, navy and brown plaid wool flannel trousers

 

 

2) Grey donegal tweed trousers

I think the waist is good. The arms could be a bit shorter but it isn't really a deal maker for me. I wanted the shirt to be slim but not too slim. I didn't want it to be skin tight.

And in regards to the belt im having one being shortened as we speak!

Do you lift weights?

With the first trousers, I'd stick with solids as much as possible, probably in lighter shades than the pants. Navy blue would work, but green or gray or lighter brown would look good too.

 

On the second pair, just about anything. Texture is more important in that regard. You want to match the texture of the pants, but you could pair them with solids or patterns and still look pretty good. That's the nice thing about light to mid-gray trousers. You can pair them with almost anything and look good.

You are seriously paying to have your belt shortened? How much did you pay for the belt. You aren't real.
