    I'm still learning what plays well with this suit. The next time, I might go with a lighter blue shirt and a darker pocket square.

    I have the Tarrago nano protector and I have used it on suede. Water just bounces of.

    How long does it work for? A day/week/month?

    I respray maybe quarterly. It mostly comes off when you brush the shoes. I think I may have a video of it in effect on my cell, let me check.

    Looking good! I think you're right about the shirt given the scale of the stripes. The vertical stripes come together in the suit and shirt a hair, but it looks good all the same. Is it a blue overcheck or is there another color in there as well?
    I do it to a few of my shoes, no issues yet.
    Yup.

    If you spray your shoes, why do you brush them? Does the suede settle or do they get dirty that fast?

    Sure did :nodding:



    MF, it does work, nano protector plus a dainite sole pretty much makes for bone dry in most of the weather.



    This



    I'll lightly brush 'em maybe once a month throughout the year and spray once a month in the autumn/winter. Suede is comparatively low maintenance...

    Cheers, Cleav. I'll order some, because it looks like it's going to be a very wet autumn.

    You're welcome mate. All of that ^^ said, if it's really tipping it down I might not reach for the suede every time :)
