    These yours? Sent to me for polishing a couple weeks ago. They weren't too bad to start.

    Yeah, traded them away. Really great shoes, but too narrow for me, so my toes kept slipping of the inner sole. I only wore them a handful of times and did shine them up according to your methods, no polish or other crap.

    I concur, there was no other crap on them. Thanks for caring enough to do it right.

    And very excited about this- my wife mentioned she wanted one the other day and I just happened to stumble on one. Now to get her to mention in passing she'd be interested in some Kiton suiting.

    Shout out to @ridethecliche. I made him go back and get that Ben Sherman suit that he left behind, and it fits me like it was made for me. Fills a huge gap in my closet for that dark-blue-but-lighter-than-navy solid suit. Pick stitching, dual vent, FF, still basted. Couldn't have asked for more, and a total of 3 1/2 days from inquiry to in my hands.

    Post a pic with you in it! That'd get the ebay views.

    Glad it worked out. I liked the color!

    Also, I am so hungover right now.

    Must... Move....
