Jarvis takes charge

It's important to have a good man taking care of your chaussures; not to end up in the same soup as Bertie Wooster did when the young blighter Edwin attended to Bertie's brown shoes in the time before Jeeves took charge,
To be able to protect his garments from dirt and shoe polish Jarvis will wear protective sleeves and an apron when doing the shoes and boots; the Morning Coat on the hanger nearby.
One could buy one's shoe polish or make it following the old recipe from Mrs. Beeton in her 1861 Book of Household Management.

My man Jarvis takes charge; attending to the shoes

Mrs. Beeton's book is gem of good advice
