Punctilios: Lacing Style
My burgundy wingtips came laced as shown, in the standard crissycrossy way. (Shown here with A History of Men's Style, my Christmas gift from a delightful gal who, for reasons not obvious to me, has been spending time with me for over a year now.) I prefer a different style--instructions here.
The Valet folks prefer the style shown, but I find the "straight across" style conveys a more serious attitude. After all, the crossed style is basically the same as the way you lace your running shoes. Nothing like a whiff of the gym to send me to the drawing board.
