Check out the lasts my friend. Dundees are on the 1 last which is wider than the narrow 5 last.
I am referring to Allen Edmonds Conditioner/Cleaner. As englade said, I don't think you need to worry about breathability of the leather. Unless perhaps you are using way too much.
I would never judge anyone for wearing tassel loafers, but I can't see myself owning a pair. I find them to be quite 'dandy'. I like the way penny loafers look on the shelf, but every time I've tried on a pair I've thought they looked rather odd on my feet. Maybe I'll go the monk strap route for a no-lace shoe instead. Though, the simplicity of slipping into the Hillsborough was appealing...especially when it's raining, due to the rubber sole.
Has AE ever made a wholecut loafer? Something like this...
They have the Ann Arbor on the clearance list currently, but it has a cemented sole.
Not exactly like that, but the discontinued model, Astor, is a wholecut tassel loafer.
Gents, I noticed a peculiar problem with my brown shell Patriot loafers about a week back. If you look closely in this picture (I apologize for the picture quality but my camera is not very good at taking macro shots), there appears to be a dent which looks like a crack in the shoe. This is just one of three on one shoe; the other has dents but not enough to become cracks.
I've applied renovateur and cordovan cream to challenge the idea of it being a welt... and it seems not the case. I've only worn these shoes about eight times or so; is this crack my fault?
