The British summer is full of weather related sartorial challenges. One of the perennial problems is that suede shoes, perfect with a candy stripe seersucker summer trouser, are not best suited to the sudden downpours of torrential rain that accompany any snatched sunshine.
The ensuing city grime, murky splashes, and smudges from other people’s shoes all create suede havoc. Help is at hand from Woly. Woly make a terrific range of leather cleaning supplies, including what appears at first glance to be an outsize old-school eraser (that literally rubs out dirt) and a peculiar rubberised sponge for absorbing greasy marks.
If you own suede shoes, you need Woly in your life. We get ours from the delightful Barbican Dry Cleaners where they also stock a full range of protective waterproof sprays and splendid Woly coloured shoe creams (more on these later).
