Simultaneously AND at the same time no less.
I found this to be quite an interesting read: http://www.neh.gov/humanities/2008/marchapril/feature/the-dandy
To this post here;
Regarding shoe polish.
Where are you guys buying the products? Any brand/store recommendations.
Here's everything I reckon you need:
Saphir gold medal line products:
1 black wax polish
1 black cream polish
1 appropriate brown wax polish
1 appropriate brown cream polish
2 cloths or chamois. One to apply the renovator/polish with, One to buff the toe cap. (You can use a brush to apply the polish but I prefer using a cloth and working it into the leather in small circles.
2 horsehair brushes to brush the polish off once it is dry. Use one for black and one for brown.
1 wooden box to keep it all in.
Very simple method that I use is:
If you want a mirror shine you can then wet a cloth and work it in small circles on the toe cap then finish it off with a buffing from a pair of nylon stockings.
So I won three eBay tie auctions the other week in the early morning, which cost me $180 all up, and finally they've arrived from the UK :)
The seller was away for a couple of days so threw in another unsold tie to make up for the delay - one with which I forgot to bid on and really wanted anyway. All NWOT. Here they are:
The tie on the right is a light green, but is slightly darker than it appears in the photos. Was that a steal or what?
Yeah I'm not too sure yet about that light green. Couldn't pass it up for $40, but am unsure if anything will go with it. Any suggestions?
Navy suit, white shirt
Navy jacket, white shirt, grey trousers
Dark brown suit, white shirt
Charcoal suit, white shirt
Brown tweed jacket, navy (or mid-grey) trousers, white shirt
Probably all with either a white or a dark green PS.
....aaaand I'm spent.
