You may or may not know of a little blog called Art of Manliness. It is one of the coolest things the internet has to offer. It is full of incredibly manly things to do and ways to improve yourself as a gentleman. This blog has taught me things like how to tie a tie, how to escape a sinking car, how to be self reliant, and how to properly polish a pair of shoes.
I figured part of my goal with this is to photograph things that I do and that I should start off with something that isn't completely out of my wheelhouse so I decided to do something that I do on a semi-regular basis. If you don't know me, I am on the verge of obsession when it comes to fashion, especially 60s fashion. (If you dress like Don Draper, we'll be best friends.)
When I started dressing up on a more frequent basis, I quickly realized I needed to take proper care of my clothes or they will wear out, especially shoes. I have a pair of boots that are practically on my feet at all times and unfortunately they don't make them anymore. I have shined other pairs of dress shoes before, but never these. So this is me trying to force my boots to be ageless.
I know this kind of ended up being a shameless plug for Kiwi, but get over it! Anywho, here's my finished product. I hope you enjoyed. If you want to check out some Art of Manliness, I highly suggest it. I would link to some of my favorite articles, but (1) there are too many to choose from and (2) I'd rather you go look around for yourself. I hope you enjoyed photos of my boots.
