I had a watch out on eBay, and some nice ones came along for a good price, so I snatched them up.

Although I agree with gdl that there is almost always a better option than black suede (or black shoes in general), it does fill a hole in my collection and I think there are times that they would work nicely. For example, I think black suede shoes would have looked cool with this outfit:


one of your better fits. the black turtleneck works for you like Steve Jobs wears them.

i know.

very cool. i like black shoes in general. atm, no suede as my suede contingent is not really existing.

let's stick to gregs proposal and see how they incorporate. i'm looking forward to it.

ps: if you ever have a gap for a pinkish grape suede. pls let me know...

i have enough loafers and driving shoes to make another circle no tassel loafers yet. i've always had this strong hate towards them but now i'm beginning to warm up to them thanks to SF. just need a good modern last and suede IMO

Although are these the normal pebble grain or more of that pindot style which is essentially smaller pebble grain?

Looks like a smaller pebble grain to me. I posted some EG Troon a few pages back which have a much larger "pebble" to the grain.
