Mr. Porter  has released their weekly journal segment and this edition features our colleague Mr. Justin Fitzpatrick,  AKA The Shoe Snob (He's actually very nice and humble).  In this short video with Mr. Porter the shoe shine extraordinaire and proprietor of the Gieves & Hawkes shine booth on Savile Row shows us how to properly maintain your shoes.  This is actually one of the best and least boring "how to shine your shoes" videos we've seen in recent memory.  Well done, Justin.  Stay shiny.
