Speaking of cordovan, there's a pair of cool looking plain toe boots on the Tricker's outlet. (http://trickersoutlet.com/mens/9047g-cordovan.html). Size 8.5. They seem to be set up to refund VAT after you pay like the old ebay shop, rather than remove VAT when you're paying.
RL Giannis. Some pairs of cordovan shoes just do not want to take a shine. This is one of those pairs. I've tried to remove the excess polish that was on them since new via brushing and buffing, but it seems like every time I buff them, more comes off. I've not wanted to use anything to try and strip it off. Maybe I need to get a horse hair polishing wheel for my drill.
I would disagree that this is a recent phenomenon. People have been doing this since forever. I recall many years ago a guy at work asked me to review his design doc. We're SW Engineers. I made comments and also corrected his misuses of apostrophes. He addressed my comments in the contents of the document but also reverted all the apostrophe corrections. I've hated him ever since.Relevant Bob the Angry Flower.
I take the same size in Rain and 348.
Unless you're ordering more than $800, you don't have to worry about customs.
Cordovan is a tougher/stronger material. It's scarcer and more expensive. There's little if any practical advantage to it and for me it's about the aesthetics. I like the smoothness. It does wear harder than normal calf/cow. Small scuffs or scratches can typically be brushed, rubbed out to look as good as new. Tricker's mostly uses Comipel cordovan from Italy. The jury is still out as to how tough it is as compared to the benchmark Horween cordovan. But it has served me...

Nope.End charges US orders in US$. They have a separate US price for everything which is higher than the UK prices without VAT.For CP, End prices are about the same as US retailers.Tres-Bien, Kafka, etc are going to be cheaper for US customers.I've bolded some of that for you.
It was actually sort of sunny today. They're a bit darker in normal light.
