post #31486 of 33197

Hi There,

 

I have a question around shoe care - i've bought a few nice shoes for work that I don't really want to ruin (not the cheapest... lol) through improper care.  However, the first time I cleaned them (i.e. renovateur, shoe cream, wax) took around 3 hours for a single pair.  I was wondering if this is necessary every single time, or can I skip a step(s) (i.e. just use Renevatour)?

Also, how often do I need to clean them - i.e. if I wear a pair twice a month, do I need to clean it monthly, or will, for example, 3 monthly care work?

 

Thanks,

Farhan

Different people will give you different answers, but I would say clean them once every 3-6 months, shine them as needed (probably once every 1-2 months).

Charcoal suit, white shirt, muted black with very little red tie. I want to pair the shoes below with it. 

 

1. Is that fine?

 

2. What color socks?

Plain charcoal or patterned? If the former, probably should go with a regular oxford over a monk.

Totally fine.

Yeah, wear oxfords. Preferably cap toes.

Disagree, unless it's a wedding, I think he won't burst into flames wearing monks. It's not like he's going to a conservative business meeting. People wear t-shirts and shorts to church nowadays.

yeH, it's more what he's wearing them with than where he's going. I mean, likely no one will notice, so it probably doesn't matter much, but for myself, if I'm wearing a solid dark gray or charcoal suit with a white shirt, I'll be wearing black cap toes.

I'm looking at buying my first tweed sportcoat, either herringbone Harris or Donegal, but I can't decide on color: light/medium grey or brown?

I plan on wearing it with indigo and black jeans, charcoal flannels, brown,bottle green, navy and olive cords. I love brown and have probably too much brown clothing already, but brown tweed feels too old-school-british-gent while grey somehow is more modern (in my mind).

Am I wrong? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

For those living in NY or other cities:

Do you wear your leather soled shoes on the pavement? Do you do anything to help prolong their life? (topy, taps etc...) 

How long before you have your shoes resoled again?

 

I have a pair of AE loafers and wore them once a week from around Feb-May and they need resoling :/ 

This seems to be the only pair that has worn out unexpectedly fast...

The Loake Hydes are the perfect boots for you.
