    Luxire look alright, I wonder how long they will maintain that "introductory price", though. Their fabric range seems to be severely lacking at the moment. Not a classic blue herringbone or mauve colour in sight that I can see. They seems to have to have gone for the flashy stripes and checks before getting their basics covered (perhaps these ugly fabrics are the ones that can be had for such a cheap price).

    It seems from their thread that they are adding fabrics at a reasonable clip, however. Still for that price and such a quick turnaround I might give it a try tonight before committing to cottonwork.

    In unrelated news, while fitting myself up for these shirts I have realised that due to multiple collar bone breaks from footy my left shoulder is now at least a half inch shorter than my right and slopes considerable more :satisfied:

    You could always try the search function for this thread. The navy blazer question is getting older than the navy.

    Hastily cleaning my shoes(To Boot New York) calf skin, cognac coloured derbys l think. I stupidly used some Kiwi Liquid Shoe Polish, this has competely stained the sides of my shoes. Took them to a local shoe repairer and suggests maybe an intense buff would remedy the error.
    Whats the best course of action? Too embarrassed to post the pic!

    find some proper shoe polish that best matches the shoe.. dab some water with the polish and apply lots of very thin layers using a soft cloth. it should restore the shoe to its former glory if the polish colour is properly matched.

    Re Meermin, did anyone experiment with their RTWs, especially the Hiro? I think I can justify another pair of black cap toes so my Loakes can dry out between wears.

    ive got the hiro classic captoe. Its decent.

    The Olfe MTO fitted me better though

    The classic leather seems thicker... the MTO is finer and "creased" across the toe area

    Thanks for that. Actually looking for blue colored blazer, not navy. To be used for semi casual with chinos or jeans on warmer days when I do not want to wear a suit. The austinreed 110 Anniversary looks tempting.

    no probs. Gerry Nelson might be able to chime in - his shoes are perma-mirrored.

    This sounds like a good plan. I would also post this question on the shoe care thread at http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc

    Give them time, they're still fairly new. I see plenty there for me.
