Francesco Carrozzini for L'uomo Vogue

“Always insert the shoe trees immediately after removing the feet, while the leather is still warm. Make sure that whoever polishes your shoes (the assumption is that it will be a minion, and not yourself) works the polish well into the join between sole and upper. And bring the shoes in every year or so for servicing. (When you do, they will be received in the same way that a nursing home wecomes a rich hypochondriac, with solicitous inquiries as to his current state of health, followed by prolonged rest and treatment.)”

Mayle, Peter. Acquired Tastes. New York: Bantam, 1992.
