Thanks to Mr Porter – the online retail destination for men’s style – here is a great video that walk us through the complexities of a perfect shoe shining. The “Art of Shoe Shining” by shine star Mr Justin FitzPatrick in London.

Although Mr Justin FitzPatrick is a shoemaker with a nascent and eponymous brand, he currently spends his days renovating and polishing the shoes of London’s best-shod men. His specialty is a slow and careful artisanal polish, which renovates and nourishes the shoes, before they’re polished to an incredible shine. A full military mirror finish takes Mr Fitzpatrick about three hours, and transforms the appearance of a pair of shoes. His top tip for men who polish their own shoes? “Let them dry between each stage of polishing – it’s not about rushing, it’s about finesse.”
