At work We do r&d for advanced materials (mostly composites) used in specialty, high strain-rate applications. Think very fast, like a speeding bullet fast .

Most of the time I dress pretty shitty at work because I never know when I have to run down to our lab and replumb fittings from our steam boiler or cast a mold out of aluminum filled epoxy (That stuff will KILL your clothes) or drive a forklift piled with random stuff. And historically I haven't dressed very well outside of work either but now I'm trying to step it up a few notches and this thread helps.

Edit: brief content
as soon as i read engineer, i thought "wearing a collared shirt probably qualifies as dressing up"
that's all i wanted to know so i know what kind of environment you are in

I don't do much of anything to take care of them. I'll polish them once a year or so, but other than that they're good to go.

Nice purchase. While you don't HAVE to wait before polishing leather, it makes sense on rugged boots.

To protect them, Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Protector and Montana Pitch Blend are the top products in my mind. I think you'll be good either way.

When you do finally want to polish them, I would use a cream paste instead of a wax paste. The wax paste will give them a finish more like a dress shoe, which I assume you don't want. Instead, spread on some paste, let it sit for a few, and then brush the shoe with a horsehair brush. It'll be a healthy, but not shiny, finish.

Lastly, name + occupation is not PII by any legal standard

Thanks man. Do I wait on the leather protector until I'm ready for my first polish as well?

No, you can (maybe should) apply the leather protector before your first wear, assuming you're talking about the Obenauf's or Montana Pitch Blend.

As for PII, we'll accept any combination of name + SSN, driver's license number, taxpayer ID number, credit card number + authorization code, etc. We will also accept protected health information. Welcome to YMWDLOM.

Thanks for your help gentlemen. And to think E46F has been getting on my nerves with all of the politcal bitching lately! I think Ill stick between H&F, DIY and this thread and I'll be good! You guys are very helpful.

I have a pair of blue Rivets, brown herringbone Rudy (part of a suit), Air Force flannel Rudy (part of last FF), and navy twill Rudy (part of last FF).

They all need to be tailored - hemmed and taken in half an inch at the waist. Can't wait to get that done.

I forgot how big of a pit Newark Airport is.

That's about all I have to contribute this morning.

EWR is hands down, without exception, the best NYC airport. LGA is the bane of my existence and I'd rather eat dogshit than ever fly in or out of LGA.
