Just taken delivery of some wonderful EG leather & beige twill cloth shoes. Any advice on treatment of the cloth prior to wearing would be greatly appreciated as would tips on cleaning ( my previous red wine stain removal testing on various bits of carpet apparently resisant to red wine stains due to Scotchguard etc. proved ineffective). Many thanks!
Similarly lost a good jacket due to moths - bought some naphthalene moth balls & put them in the bottom of all suit carriers after that. If not moths then might just be cigar/cigarette ash embers causing those holes.
I'd put the Grenson Rose collection above Barker and Loake and perhaps slightly below Cheaney and Church, C & J mainline products. The Masterpiece stuff comes close to EG in terms of leather quality IMHO. The Rose Chelsea boots I have use reasonable quality leather and were a well made BNIB ebay bargain (sub $100) - representing a lot of shoe for the money so I'd suggest you have a look there. As an entry level shoe you won't go too far wrong. Unfortunately it will just...

Most multi-purpose shoe I own is Churchs Shannon in Burgundy Cordovan, works with many different colours of suit + blue/black jeans & grey/khaki/brown casual trousers. Not quite Vass but they were 50% off when bought 16 years ago & still get regular use. So kind of ideal for me.

Not often one can say that - so worth bearing in mind when thinking value for money. Also check Ebay.co.uk = Graftons...

I may be wrong but I thought the little sign to the right of him in the scene was Churchs? I remember thinking he just made $100M -> $1bn and I love Churchs but maybe he'd be at Cleverley or Lobb getting bespoke? Belated Happy New Year by the way, lets hope for a better 2011 for all of us.
