New P Johnson 7-Fold tie in chocolate and a MTM P Johnson shirt with Thomas Mason fabric and cutaway collar for RB. The 7-fold is really lightweight and lovely to tie!

Gerry - could you help out.
Do you think my boots need a polish? I think the edges may need a touch up.

I've used Kiehls and Aesop, both good stuff. Olay from the supermarket is just as good, and cheaper.

As for frangrance, I've decided I'm old enough to wear Acqua di Parma, and never looked back...

Yeah i love Aesop - havent tried the moisturiser but the Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser is what i use ... smells great! Think its the bergamot i like - reminds me of a good quality earl grey tea

I need a "mattifying" or anti shine moisturiser and dont think they have that though

Yeah me too I have quite oily skin. One thing I've found from Aesop that is quite good for this is the Parsley seed serum, which works very well as a moisturiser.

Thanks. Have you had them do a partial or a full resole and what do they use for heels?

This is real patina with the added bonus is that you have a story behind it. Or you can make a good one up. That's if anyone ever notices. Which they won't.

Well said! Polish them properly and these so-called blemishes will only serve to add character.

Well, it' s been a little while, but I've given the shoes a good working over with leather conditioner and buffed it out. Quite happy with the result as it stands! smile.gif

 

I must say, GN, I am mighty impressed with your shoe shining efforts posted over the past few days. I'm looking forward to teaching myself how to get a similar look once I find some decent polish (as opposed to conditioner) which matches the color of the Westbournes nicely.

 

As for no socks - well, let's just say it's never been something I've ever considered, having never resided in Thornbury (actually in this town - old school blue collar - I stand out enough as it is when I take the time to dress up in classic MC style (well, as far as I can with my limited wardrobe...)).

QV light moisturiser; or Cedaphil moisturiser for night/general use.

 

There's an Ego one i use that is used every morning - protects your skin from Australia's UVA and UVB. Has a matte finish. Smells a tad funky but smell goes away after 10-15 minutes.

Forgive my ignorance - born, no doubt, from reading this thread only intermittently - but what is this mythical shoe polishing method? I'm pretty happy with my results of late, but am always happy to improve, and Gerry's look great, as do the black Hallams that were posted.

Does anyone know when the next David Jones sale on suits will be?

The Oil Free Facial Hydrating Serum is exactly that. Or, what Jason posted, the Parsley Seed Serum. The Oil Free is recommended for oily/what they call "blemish prone" skin, and the Parsley Seed is for most skin types. I use both, and alternate, opting for Oil Free in warmer weather.
