Alligator / Crocodile Shoes - Page 64

post #946 of 950
Thanks for chiming in, all. I've settled on a pair of nice brown and plain croc oxfords I first saw on Apparel Arts scans of yore, worn in spring or summer with plain fabrics. Croc has enough pop as is, and broguing or busy trousers will only lead to an eyesore. Too many Italian makers add frills to croc or gator, when the leather should be all.

I don't know about Italian makers but that's probably a good philosophy to begin with. If you begin with good quality leather, it can "speak" for itself.

^These I shared a year or two ago:

Hide matching is poor but I cannot complain much as these were a lucky eBay find, with some patina to boot.
