WIWT - no tie day on navy 3 piece Suitsupply,  Carmina boots.

I have watched enough videos and read all the sites on polishing shoes but it frustrates me that I still cannot achieve the shine. I don’t need a mirror shine but something better than what I have done with my shoes above, Gaziano & Girling Fairmont vintage rioja and Dior Homme derby. I spent 1 hour on each pair and though polished, they are not the shine that I expected.

I wish I live in Paris or London where shoe artisans such as The Shoe Snob abound so I can drop off my shoes for them but I don’t want to fork out the round-trip shipping fees to polish my shoes.

WIWT-I am learning the difference a quality tie makes as this 7 fold Canali tie gives me the volume and heft as I tie a window or half Windsor knot. Double breast navy suit here.
