    New SF member and not sure where to find the answer you're looking for? Have a quick question that doesn't belong in a current thread? Welcome, you found the right place.

    This is a weekly thread where new users can ask quick questions and get a solid answer. If a thread already exists that would be more helpful, we will point you in the right direction. The only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.....so ask away!

    Can anyone get me an ID on the jacket to the far right (barbour-looking jacket with blackwatch tartan).

    All I know is that it's Dries Van Noten. I'm assuming it's from an old season.

    Many thanks.

    Can someone recommend a minimalist sneaker for under $100 (maybe $125 if it's really worth it)? I'm under no illusions that I'll get top quality spending this much, but I only wear sneakers a couple times a week.

    I currently have a pair of Stan Smiths, and was considering the Kent Wang benchgrade sneakers.

    Thanks.

    New to raw denim. Want to try 501 STFs to start. Consensus seems to be to buy TTS or size down 1" in waist, and size up 2-3" in length. If it matters, I have big thighs and usually wear 541s.

    Should I go with my normal 34" waist or size down to 33"? Should wear them to dry or just let them hang dry?

    Hello styleforum.

    I found a "Timberland Boot Company" thread and a thread called "Official Shoe Care", but I decided to post here because I am a newbie. Here goes:

    I have a pair of Timberland Earthkeepers and I want to start taking care of them. Timberland's website only mentions the following products in the Care Instructions:
    Boot Sauce™ Cleaner, Balm Proofer™ All-Purpose Protector, Air Raider™ Boot & Shoe Refresher, Boot Sauce™ Conditioner
    I know one's a leather cleaner, the second is a leather conditioner, third one is supposed to protect and help them repel water, and the last one is a "deodorant".
    What I don't know is whether these cleaner, conditioner and protector are any good. Are they worth it?

    The Earthkeepers aren't top-class boots so I'm not looking for the best treat for them. I just want them clean, conditioned and withstanding the rain while wearing them casually during the day. So should I go on and buy these Timberland products or should I look elsewhere?

    Also, whatever product I buy, how do I apply it? Will I need a brush, a cloth?

    Any help would be really appreciated, even directing me towards another thread, forum, resource, whatever.

    Just brush regularly and give them some conditioner every now and then. You shouldn't need to polish very often. The guys in here http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc know way more than I do, but can get carried away sometimes.

    Could you? Sure. I don't like the style of that thing at all though.

    You could, but there are a lot of fashionable light jackets. Harringtons, field jackets, shirt jackets, etc. It depends on what else you're wearing.

    I love bomber jackets. Oliver Spencer makes some really nice ones that you can find on Yoox every now and then.
