    Do you have a recommended suede brush?

    My favorite Suede Brush is the Horn-Backed Suede Cleaning Brush. It is the only one we have with natural bristle, and I find that it is the easiest and most effective one to use.

    Daily use of a Suede Cleaning Brush is essential for the proper maintenance of suede shoes. This post here talks about some techniques for the daily care of suede.

    Daniel - the 10% promotional code is really meant more for the items that do not qualify for free shipping, like hangers. With the Saphir stuff, it's really either-or. And there is no way for us to allow users to choose between the two.

    I'll definitely be adding one of those on my next order - my shoe wish list seems to have more and more suede on it, and I just got a pair of suede chukkas from our friendly affiliate Kent Wang over Christmas, so I'll need one soon!

    I'm a big fan of the Super Invulver since it came back in stock. It's saphir's version which also has almond oil? Don't totally remember the advantage of the Invulver over the Terago. Kirby knows though.


    I keep forgetting that I need to buy more shoe horns like, yesterday.

    You guys notice that you can now leave comments and post pictures to our Shoe Care Guides? Take a look at theses and let me know if you have any suggestions - either modifications or new guides altogether. I am going to work on updating all of our guides beginning February 1. :nodding:

    Question for Kirby (or anyone else) regarding shirt hanger sizing: I have about a 43" chest, generally wear size 16" dress shirts and L casual shirts, though sometimes medium depending on the cut. Most of my shirts measure about 18 or 18.5" across the back from seam to seam. What size shirt hangers would work best for me?

    I'd go with the Large 19.0" Hanger. The 17" might be a little narrow for you.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I actually just received some of the 19" shirt hangers today, but just wanted to confirm. I think they're a pretty good fit for my shirts. The tips of the hanger extend right to the shoulder seams on some shirts, and about 0.5" past on others. I found a post from you in this thread from a year or so ago where you said with shirt hangers, it's better for them to be a bit on the large side vs. small.

    Are there any discounts for buying hangers in bulk?

    I vaguely remember there being a discounted price for buying 5+ hangers.

    I wanted to get some 17" Jacket Hangers in Alfred Finish but it seems to be unavailable. Do you know when new stock is coming in? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, not really. But do remember that there is the StyleForum 10% discount with no minimum.


    We are actually expecting these hangers any day... We'll send an email out when we receive them. If you're not on our mailing list, you can sign up at the bottom-right of our homepage.

    That's correct! Not as much of an issue as with suit jackets because there is no structure to the shoulders.

    Another Shoe Shine Sunday!
    This Alden Black Shell Cordovan boot had scuffs all over the cap toe.

    As always Hanger Project shoe guides and products (Abbeyhorn Sleeking Bone and a bit of Saphir Renovateur) to the rescue!

    [​IMG]

    Here you can see the difference between the one cap toe that I polished first. The two shoes started with the same type of scuffs and dull appearance.

    So I pulled my Saphir Renovateur out to condition my shoes, but noticed that the lid wasn't screwed on very tight. When I took off the lid, I noticed that the Renovateur was now more of a paste than a cream. When I tried applying it to my shoes, it was really hard to spread around. Is there something I can do or should I just look to get another bottle of renovatuer?
