Yeah I don't tend to worry about treating them because I'm not out in the wet all that much and when I am, it's more the soles that see the damage rather than the uppers. I have a proper suede brush and cleaner which takes care of any spots easily.

I use the water proof more as a stain protector than anything else.

Haha. Nah, I've had many drunk nights and have thanked my lucky stars I'm not in suede at the urinals!

Less concerned about water - you'd be more concerned about oil-based debris falling on the shoes which is the main reason i spray mine every few months. Always brush them every few weeks (im lazy)

 

Oil based debris is more common than you'd expect - food, grease/oil on roads/car etc

I've got this suede shampoo that I used, think it's from Mister minit. Spray it on, let it dry and give them a good brush with a suede brush and they come up perfect. I do that every other month.

Agree BB LE OCBD and LL Bean who do great Portuguese flannelette shirts (non bogan variety) Bills Chinos and BB trousers, corduroys.

I buy most thing's by the pound ( pun intended) shoes, books ect so if it holds against that I will be happy.

As for the Euro its been a while since i have bought anything in that currency the wife and I are contemplating going to Amsterdam later this year so fingers crossed on the dollar holding.

Essentially, I'm too lazy to read something. And I don't want an audio book, but I want it to read stuff to me. Do they have that?

Ha. Think he was looking more from recommendations and experiences but that was funny.

With suede, I agree with Romp, oil from food/life in general is the main issue. My Kimber boot got some butter on them which was a hassle to get out. Once my Alfred Sargent monks arrive I think I will spray them with some protector and clean my other suedes (ordered some Saphir suede cleaner too).

Wow that's exactly what I was thinking smile.gif

Yah the suede thing--I got two drops of oil on one of my suede boots some time ago, and it has basically ruined them. I've tried about 94k different ways of cleaning them, I've even tried staining them a darker colour, and nothing works. Fear the oily pizza. Fear it.

JM's comments are correct - think about the amount of fabric in the trousers vs the jacket 

 

You do fittings at my house or you have a location in the CBD?

 

The dungeon "recreation room" in my house does not have great lighting on account of the lack of windows.

I really don't like 3 piece tuxedos

 

So....just wear a full set of tails with a white waistcoat. Problem solved.

 

 

 

Oh, and please - no ruffs on the shirt. Honeycomb only.

And no I am not going for the weed or hashish. Our son's god mother lives there.

Good timing, given that the Rijksmuseum finally re-opened last month after being closed for renovations for the past decade!
