I plan on purchasing some Venetian shoe cream and trying to work out those creases. These have become a bit of a project of mine. Any other suggestions for reconditioning these are certainly welcome.

    Fantastic! They look great to me as they are. You now have a pair of shoes that you can pass on through generations!

    brushetta- I agree, a leather band would look better than the metal band on the Orient you have pictured. Something about it looks a little off to me.

    Grats to all the recent grads! Here's to you guys making this world a better place!

    ---

    Anyway, I appreciate the feedback on the blazer, guys. It's just too tight (maybe I need to hit the gym a little harder) - I ended up wearing it open most of the night as per Foodie's suggestion.

    Caught Gatsby last night. Lots of inspiration packed into a 2 and a half hour film. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the story back in high school. Anyone else see it?

    This was today. Gave the car a bath and headed to the beach with the top down. Untucked button down with shorts: faux pas or just enough beachy casual to work? I lost the loafers for bare feet once we hit the sand.

    @Eric F--I rock that look all the time. The length of that shirt looks fine to be worn untucked.

    @acoustic--Lukeduke is the second person in the last week to post about thrifted Aldens (yoyorobbo being the other). You must be slipping on your thrifting ;-)

    Congrats to BenR and MarkB!

    Yoyorobbo, sorry to hear about your friend's dad. Very cool of you to attend and support the family. The suit looks excellent, and it is very appropriate.

    Vicious, I agree with bruschetta and Shomas. I want the shoes. Badly.

    Lukeduke, amazing thrift find. I'm interested in that jacket (or the patterned one like it) because I like the LE navy linen-cotton one so much. Does the linen wrinkle very easily? It is breathable? Is it a good weight?

    EricF, that looks great. MarkB is right -- the length is perfect for that.
