    Any opinions on these shoes? They are Eduardo G. captoes on sale for 165.00 and appear to be a good deal.

    Was trying to search, no luck really, what product would you recommend to waterproof calfskin boots? Thanks!

    I'd like to know what SF thinks of this jacket for spring and summer wear:

    Regent Fit Soft Jacket in Navy, in cotton

    Nii's list of essentials brought it to my attention. The price is very low and I assume that Brooks Brothers isn't bad quality (maybe that is a bad assumtion). I'd love to hear your thoughts. It would be my first light-weight jacket and therefore probably the only thing I could wear comfortably in the very hot Japanese summer.


    Can someone answer to this question? I'm also considering in buying this blazer

    Thanks

    I read this thread earlier today. There are 6 pages with a lot of good advice on shoe care and shoe care products.

    Looking for some hawk eyes to ID these shoes. The boat chukka is driving me mad - i've seen 4 or 5 people wearing them but can't find them anywhere.

    Any ID's get huge respect as these have defeated me.

    In fact, I don't know what to buy for a classic sportcoat between those two:

    - Brooks Brothers Regent Fit Soft Jacket (Pure cotton)

    - Bonobos The Alma Mater blazer (Textured Wool-Cashmere)

    Which one is the best for this spring-summer?


    Brooks is generally decent quality and style, particularly if you get a good price. At least in the picture, that jacket looks fine. You should try it on if you have the chance. I agree with Larson McCord, the bonobos jacket is ridiculously short. It also has too high button stance for my taste.

    Saw some boat chukkas in the Herrington catalogue. Might have been polo RL.
