How to Tie Eldredge Knot

I commonly ignore the exotic knots as I think they are very gimmicky and feel like it’s the equivalent of wearing an ascot to McDonalds. Except for one: the Eldredge Knot. I could find any history or origin of the knot and have only seen one person (not on the internet) wear it, a very fashion forward female friend of mine. Anyway here are the steps on how to do it and video to help. If there is a enough interest I may do more pieces on the “other” knots: the trinity knot, the cape knot, and the Novotny knot. Still need more knots check out AwesomeKnot

Shoe In – How to Maintain Your Shoes

So you investing in a quality pair of dress shoes, here is how you keep them up.

Polishing Your Shoes

1. Wipe your shoes down with a damp cloth to remove superficial dirt and stains.

2. Wet the welt brush and scrub out the entire welt strip.

3. If the shoes need it, apply sole-edge dressing — carefully. If you get it on the uppers, it will stain them permanently. Let edge dressing dry before going any further.

4. Apply polish, using a circular rubbing motion. You don’t need to slather it on. You don’t need to be gentle. And the more you rub, the better. Let the polish dry. It should take about five minutes.

5. Buff the entire shoe with a polishing brush. For extra gleam, hold the shoe between your knees and buff the toe vigorously with a lint-free cloth.
