    Also I've never used Reno on shell, but that's because Im cheap, and just ordered a can of VSC a couple years ago. I hear Reno works well though.

    Its good stuff its what i use but i would recommend a cleaning or stripping first as its works best if it's the base layer polish and not sitting on top it won't do anything if it can't get passed the old layers of wax and pigments. It's easy to maintain them after that I just wipe them with it after EVERY use before getting trees and put back in the bag. Keeping them in bags helps alot too.

    Even though Detroit has a bad reputation from a general economic perspective, I have had success there. Just search the chain locations near where you are staying or around the wealthier areas. North of the city, the Pointes, Ann Arbor, etc.

    @Spruce Moose Gitman Bros Vintage is. Needs to have that extra label.

    And @TheODGuy jaw-dropping haul. Especially the Belstaff. If it's a 40....

    Rocked my first bow tie today, and I have to say, I love it. @cpmac7 will forever have that V-Card of mine since he supplied it. Thanks dude...

    Please tell me that you didn't wear a pair of Nike high tops with the bow tie. [​IMG]
