Cordovan as bad weather footwear. So I followed the SF advice and wear my cordovan during bad weather and got water marks all over. It took a year and half and numerous polishes for the water marks to fade. I don't why so many members suggest cordovan as bad weather attire. Those cheap rubber overshoes work much better with rain, sleet, snow and slush. Marinella ties. To see what the fuss all about, I made a trip to BG to examine them in real life, they're very very nice don't get me wrong but there are number of equally nice makers like H&B which can be had for a fraction of cost 20 minutes downtown subway ride away. May be the bespoke ties are much nicer, but I don't see the point of bespoke ties unless you're 5'4 or under or over 6'4. So what other stuffs do you think are overrated on Styleforum?
