I hate to disappoint you but if you're wearing a black or very dark navy tux, only black shoes would work. Why don't you just buy the C&J Weymouth cause they fit you? Unless you're renting your tux, you do need a pair of black shoes and I'm sure the Weymouths are a very solid pair that will last you a long time. Also, there will definitely be occasions which call for black shoes only.
Any photos?
The Beijing is part of the City Line which AFAIK has been discontinued. It is made to a lower standard and offers polished binder only.The Houston is part of the Office Collection which is made to Custom Grade standard but slightly cheaper than the Classic Collection shoes.
That's strange. Have you tried shoe creams as they contain more pigments? I had similar experience (though not AE) and a bit of shoe cream followed by shoe wax did the job nicely.
Well, since we've been talking how one should price brand new G&G shoes for secondary sale, thought I would chip in with this example(not mine of course); NIB Gaziano & Girling Grant With Lasted Trees - 10.5UK Will Ship To: Anywhere $825 (USD) http://www.styleforum.net/t/519996/nib-gaziano-girling-grant-with-lasted-trees-10-5uk

No, please don't. You only use it when the mirror shine on the toe area is broken and applying more wax won't bring back the mirror shine. That's when you strip off the old wax and start afresh.
Reno'Mat is for stripping old wax. Absolutely no need to use it every time you shine your shoes. Otherwise you would be subjecting your shoes to very harsh treatment.
Why would they abandon their core competence? Makes no sense at all.I just called them up and yes, they still make shirts
Here's a video on a half sole replacement: http://youtu.be/DR5yogwrItg @DWFII - would a half sole replacement be better than a full sole one since there is smaller disturbance to the shoe?
