Corthay shoe polishing

Last month was our biggest ever on Permanent Style, with just over 330,000 pageviews on the site. Of course, numbers only mean so much – it is the quality of the readers that counts. So I’d like to say thank you to every last, beautiful one of you. Everyone that reads, shares, stops me in the street, and writes delightful messages of their own. You make it all worthwhile.
