Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1058

post #15856 of 19808

Very nice, is it a shrunken chrust or an "arlington" leather?

post #15857 of 19808

Is this Inca leather or Shrunken Calf?

 

Ha... SDolina beat me to it.

Vass tricolour (three shades of cognac) oxfords with Goyzer stitch.

It looks to me like 'Inca-leather'.

My guess, 'Inca' is an embossed calf to look like llama leather (Inca - Llama - geddit?)

Here are shoes in genuine llama leather:

Bengal is probably right. Truth be known I do not know what it is. I had a look through the swatch booklet with Mark and originally chose an ox-blood hatchgrain but then changed my mind and rang through to change it to the dark brown I spotted at the beginning of the booklet...

I'll drop them a mail to enquire.

Cheaney "Cavendish"

Nice, cheaper alternative to the EG Sloane...

Pretty sure the St. C are shrunken calf.

Leffot ran a MTO for the 505A in what appears to be identical leather (apart from the grain being slightly more pronounced)

Nice read, but little mention of men's shoes...

In the spirit of "damage report"... Can these be repaired or do I need a full resole? In either case, any recommendations in San Francisco? Thanks.

I will ask the cobbler to execute a full resole. It has already reached its end.

I would appreciate any input on my shoe decisions as I'm beginning to put together a better wardrobe even though my industry is quite casual (IT).  I have over the last year or so had a handful of suits custom made here in Atlanta ( http://customsuitshop.com/ ).  Dark Navy, Dark Charcoal, Black and Light Grey Windowpane suit.  Plus the usual light tan dress slacks.  I picked up the AE LaSalle in Chilli last year and wear this with my Navy suit and tan slacks:

Also picked up the AE Carlsbad in Walnut, wear with Tan slacks (not sure how i still feel about this pair).

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF6612_1_40000000001_-1

 

I picked up these two pair based on what seemed to fit my foot at the AE store - one to replace a black Ecco pair.

 

AE Harrison in Black and AE Flatiron in Bourbon

But these C&J had caught my eye as well:

Would greatly appreciate any feedback on these as i had considered looking at the C&J line, but figured since i had a local AE store plus could purchase twice as many AE vs C&J thought i'd go this route first.  But these last two haven't been worn and i do have the option to return if the feedback is the C&J or another line is worth getting just a pair or two now.

 

I also would value any input on which pairs / colors go best with suit colors that i now have or may look to purchase. 

 

Many Thanks.

Seriously? These are less than 3 months old.

Maybe you are walking too hard, due to bad sizing. It is not good to apply topy when there is a hole on the shoe. You can do that afterwards.
