What type of Balmoral boots do you prefer?

 

 

 

I'm not sure whether the first (Edward Green Galway) is called Balmoral or not due to its open lacing. I just want to know which type do you like in the three types given. The significant difference is the material of the ankle part (leather, grain leather and suede). I would go for the suede but is it right that the whole leather boot is more formal than the others? And the grain leather is the most casual amid three types?

I like the second the best out of the three. Not thrilled about the different leather on the first and the derby construction. You are right that the first boots are not balmorals.

What conditioner should I use for my Allen Edmonds? I was thinking of going with the Allen Edmonds conditioner/cleaner. Any suggestions?

Saphir Renovateur.

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.
