    Keep it simple and stick with that polish..seems to have worked well for me. I'll occasionally use the conditioner but I don't think that's necessary.

    The grass isn't totally green, and the yanks aren't doing to well, so here's to wishing things change soon...

    Behold the beauty of black shell. Can you tell I don't wear it much?

    Just started building up my collection of AEs -- I love a lot of the styles, but worry they're a bit too formal for my use cases. Anyone have an opinion on Merlot McAllisters with business casual attire?

    Wow, you are having a field day today PJ! All look good. You should wear your blacks more often.

    I wear the Cambridges the most. The Leeds have a funky fit. I don't know why, since I have another pair of Leeds and they're fine. I just have to get them stretched the right way. I break all rules with the PAs and wear them with suits, even though they're shell and have a storm welt. :)

    I would wear the PAs with a Black Suit and not think twice about it. Totally with you!

    Ah the beauty of lasted shoes, I have similar experiences with shoes made on the same last in the same size...

    Great collection

    Just got my first pair of shell shoes..What is the right product to use for burgundy Macneils? I saw the Mac method but still don't know what to use sparingly.
