I have a leather belt that I have used for years. It is a go-to in my wardrobe. I wear it with jeans and khakis mostly.
My sudden attention to my appearance prompted me to take a look at The Belt. The buckle might be shined with an application of Brasso© and Elbow Grease. To my pleasant surprise, the buckle shines quite nicely. It is some sort of nickel/steel alloy. Looking at the leather, I see a dry, dull surface, uncared for. I get out the Zymol© Leather Cleaner, work it in and see some dirt come up. I get excited. I find some neutral shoe polish, work that in too, brush and buff it. I am pleased. But there are patches that need color. I use cordovan polish and brush and buff. Looking even better.
Who will notice this attention to detail to The Belt? I will!
