    Sorry, I meant that I dab the cloth in wax only once for each layer, not twice.

    A quick an dirty way:
    1. thin layer of wax, spread evenly without buffing.
    2. 1 drop of water, circular rubbing using cloth, light to moderate pressure
    3. repeat 2 until get shine

    At first, you may need to do step 2 many times (5-10 times), but after you are familiar with the process and can feel how much pressure you need when rubbing, then it would take very little of water.

    How do you guys feel about this vintage light blue 3 piece? I have just purchased it couple days ago. While it is on its way I feel as if the maybe color might be a bit too much, I'm not sure whether to keep it or return it once it arrives.
    Here is the photo of the jacket. Inputs welcome.

    I thought you need multiple layers of wax to cover up the uneven surface of the leather?

    The color looks a bit dated.

    My thoughts as well, I'll wait to see what others think before confirming on the return. Thank you sir.

    You only need enough wax to cover the leather pores, which are too small anyway, so any amount of wax you use is enough. The more wax you use, the harder it is to get the shine.

    What are good pocket square colors paired with a purple shirt? Yellow?

    In my mind I see something olive, or something with olive in it.

    Anyone offering UK proxy services?

    I see the old thread is archived, so is this the place to ask now?

    If it fit me, I would totally rock it (as a two-piece). No guts, no glory.
