Perfect Gloss Paint Finish

I'm trying to get a perfect finish on my front door. I put the second coat on today, but there seem to be lots of little bits in it. Paint brush was clean and I had just sanded the door with fine paper and wiped with a cloth. Any suggestions?

Cloth was not a dust free one.
I wipe down with a shammy leather dipped in turps and then let dry for half hour before painting.
Wet&Dry it in a couple of days to get it smooth again wiping with shammy, then paint.

Another thing you can do after the wipe down with the chamois is to filter the paint from the can into a painter's kettle through a pair of ladies tights (washed of course) - it is amazing how much gunge gets filtered out. Then use a well cleaned brush to apply.
