    That's interesting, what do you mean by that?

    Right now I mostly wear: black boots or white sneakers+black or grey jeans+white dress shirt+sweater+black jacket.

    You are the perfect example of someone who should just pay retail and nab exactly what they want.

    If it helps, imagine that the extra money is going toward your mental well being. Because, in a way, it is.

    Probably the same thing. There's 'cream', which is more like, well a mushy cream, the upside is it moisturizes the leather, but the downside is it's hard to get a good shine from. Then there's wax, paste, polish, etc which are like a dry oily waxy paste (duh) and you only use a little and gives a good shine. Kiwi may make both but they're sort of known for their tins of wax...









    random fashion thought... as I'm swapping over my summer to winter wardrobe and evaluating what to keep for next summer versus throw away, it's occured to me that acting like a guy, and buying things that are 'build well' is sort of pointless. Even the cheapest GAP or H&M shit I buy has very rarely been donated because it's literally worn out or falling apart, more likely I'm just tired of it. So why spend all the money on 'good quality' stuff when I'm going to get tired of it in 3-5 years and donate it anyway, and the look-alike stuff will last me just as long. Nothing to do with the cuts, colors, designs, etc, which I realize are usually much better with smaller designers, but just a point about the 'durability' argument.

    To answer the question in bold, I think what matters is the time you enjoyed wearing said clothes.

    I'm guessing if you're on SF you're not just wearing clothes for durability. Besides, durability isn't always what defines "quality." I got a Jil henley that's silk/cotton, and the care tag is basically a huge list of shit you can't do to it because the fabric is so delicate. Good quality, but not so durable.

    real talk: I want to buy the Mr. B brogues from Aldo. Since I still don't have a pair of AE's/Aldens/ for my brown brogue game. They $150, look passable, and Aldo has that 15% off coupon lying around.

    you're better off throwing $150 onto the sidewalk in front of the store then leaving, saves time on check out and has same effect

    Check out the site. They visually look much better than the regular line that Aldo puts out. I only bring up visually because "Made in Italy" translates to nothing to me honestly. Also I am unable to wear $150 dollars with my crazy lapel +J suit.
