    Not really, no. Just making sure you're aware of the darkening effect. It should work fine on oil tanned leather though.

    I'm no jacket fitting expert, but that's roughly correct. There's a lot of variability in this depending on the fit you like, though. The slimmer the fit, the further in on the shoulder the seam will generally be. A boxy jacket would be styled with the seam way past the actual shoulder. A skin-tight jacket will have it further inside the shoulder. e.g. Gustin's jackets have quite narrow shoulders. https://www.weargustin.com/store/4739

    Where you see it in the suited picture you posted is generally fine.

    Yeah, it's a little weird since everyone's got different shoulders. For me all I care about is the wall test, as long as it passes I'm good with it (provided I don't look like I have shoulder pads).

    I would try using some shoe cream in a color close to the darker area of the shoe. I find that Saphir shoe creams have more pigment than most of other shoe creams and can help create a more consistent color overall.

    You might as well use the stuff that Redwing recommends. http://www.redwingheritage.com/us/US...archTerm=02942

    @thedrake would you use those products on a pair of Iron Rangers too? Apologies if this the boot @HankScorpio is showing in his photo as our firewall at work is blocking it for some reason.

    Looks good, the pant is light enough for the shoes. The pants look a bit too close to the rug which is throwing off the picture, so I assume it looks even better in real life.
