When was the last time..
..you shined your shoes? Plan on doing it this weekend. There's no reason to have gross, scuffed up, unshined shoes or boots. I find that I enjoy wearing shoes more once they have just been shined. So in effort to keep everyone well dressed, your homework assignment this weekend is to shine those leather shoes you have been neglecting. I am working on an article now on shoe care and how to extend the life of your shoes, but until that's released, lets all put in a little effort this weekend. And in case you didn't know, every man should have at least ONE pair of leather dress shoes with a proper sole, not that rubberized crap they have been unloading on us for the past decade. Also, since I am in a preachy mood, don't buy dress shoes that have that little cushion in the back of the heel, you don't work for the post office and have to be on your feet all day. If you require that little cushion, well then you shouldn't be in long pants and leaving the crib quite yet. And while I am on it, lug soles on shoes belong in the forgotten pile along with Members Only jackets, leisure suits, and Crocs (are those dead yet?). They had a small vogue but were just bad ideas, just like Zima and the Nazi party.
