wool is the same as silk. Lowest setting and a pressing cloth. Also iron your wool inside out because even the lowest heat settings can turn your wool shiny and gross. Only go in straight lines. Start at the top and work your way down. Let your wool sit for 10 or so minutes before putting it away.

So, I'm an English major, but only because I was sure I wanted to study law. The more research I did and the more I learned the more I realized that being a lawyer is extremely shitty and the 200k debt to go to a law school wasn't worth it. So I was stuck with an English degree and realized I'm really good at writing persuasively, researching and analyzing texts.I realized I was perfect for PR and marketing related stuff. The communications isn't an official minor, just me taking those electives as much as I can.

Carmina has much better quality than Meermin, especially when it comes to the leather they use and their quality control. Carmina's leather generally ages much better than Meermins (less weird creases, better shine etc.), and I have never had any concerns with Carmina's quality in stitching, heel stacking etc. whereas I have had multiple problems with both the Meermins I have had.

That said, Meermin is still the best brand in its price bracket in my opinion with other made in Spain brands like Morjas, Skolyx and Myrqvist. But to compare it to Carmina is just silly.

I wouldn't rate Edward Green as high as, for example, Vass. EG mainly uses Goodyear welt while Vass shoes are handwelted. I think EB are also handwelted though.

I could be wrong, but I believe it is a Drake's tie. They typically release a "tumbling squares" motif every year in various colorways. You can either browse what they've got out now, check ebay for older Drakes, or alternatively check ebay or etsy for similar designs. A lot of Drakes more modest ties are just a redux of the classic repps, stripes, and foulards that have been made since forever. Quality ties are probably one of the easiest items to thrift/ebay.

I do not have experience with the two other makers, but yes, I believe Berwick is behind the Swedish brands I mentioned. Berwick is generally quite good from what I have heard, although I have found their leather quality to be a bit subpar (just one pair of shoes, so poor sample size) on my loafers. Their lasts are also quite wonky at times, but that could also be a case of some online shop doing MTO on the wrong last (looking at you, A Fine Pair of Shoes).

Berwick on sale is a great purchase, you can get them for 130-140€ at El Corte Ingles.
