Im still after these laces, the ones from this link from Percy Trimmer above. I dont speak French, and cant decipher how to check out. If anyone in France is willing to help me with this, Id be more than happy to pay a proxy fee.

Those do look interesting (black shoes w/ brown laces)... could you get away with a brown belt w/ those shoes or would you stay w/ a black belt?

Tried this bunch?

I've been amazed at the difference that a change in lace color can make to the look of a shoe. It can really dress up or dress down a shoe in ways I never thought.

Thanks for the link.. seems like its more athletic shoe inclined. Im looking for thin, waxed laces for business shoes, though.

I can't remember the details but I think at one point another SF member was looking for something similar (bigbris, maybe?) and I think he found someone. If it was bigbris, it might be worth PMing him.

I have only seen colors like that with some tennis shoes like the youth wear, not really appropriate for business wear or antyhing other situation really.

I sourced some perfect waxed shoes lace, and basically can buy them in any color. There are two versions, the round ones as shown on the photos, and flat ones (5mm or 0.2" wide). I can get some pairs for you at $1.5/pr, but minimum order for me is 5 pairs in each color.

What lengths can you get?

Any length as long as I can place an order of more than 5 pairs for each color, each length and each shape. But I think 84cm (33") works for most dress shoes. Correct me if I am wrong.

Paul Smith has some colors available on their website.

I'm not sure if they're the style & color you want and, even if they are, shipping from the UK might make it too costly. Still, might be worth a look.

I am running this pre-order thread for a group buy for the laces mentioned above in my posts.
