If you're like me, you often don't realize you've got some scuffed up shoes until you're already out the door and headed to an important appointment. Well, we're going to prevent that from happening by shining all our shoes today.
I was about to say "What if I don't have any shoes to polish?"
Wonderful idea, as Brett has already said. Now to figure out HOW to iron my shirts, and where the iron is. It's an adventure in the making.
I will have to break them out and give them a clean once I get home from campus tonight. I think I might get around to cleaning my other shoes as well, they are looking a bit scruffy overall now that I look at them....
I love the idea of Rubbing Alcohol... I have about 4 pairs of dress shoes that I am going to attack.... The job tends to be more time-consuming and I tend to procrastinate - no more - off to make my shoes look good!
I will iron my shirts as well. I have a bunch that can be washed conventionally and ironed but I dry clean so I don't need to iron them myself, and that's a wasteful habit.
On a related note, and I doubt many here will know since this maybe perceived as not-manly, but does anyone know where to buy quality dress shoes made without leather? Have any links to specific shoes?
I would appreciate it. If you can recommend any specific ones that would be amazing - I see from your other reply you know your dress clothing. I am only embarking on my journey to be better dressed and am sometimes fashionably challenged. But I'd be more than grateful for just references to good retailers that make some dress shoes without leather.
Hey guys,Just curious, do any of you have any mental routines (thoughts, meditations) you go through to prepare your mind before you compete, drill etc.? I know how to warm up my body well enough, but as a BJJ white belt, once I get grappling, I have a hard time slowing down my mind down and focusing on my next move. I am told that every white belt is a spaz and this will change over time, but if you guys have any wisdom to share about this, I would be happy to learn from you.See More
