GJ Cleverley Shoes w/ Faux Laces? - Page 2

post #16 of 56
Fantastic looking shoes. If you've already got the other bases covered, it's an interesting option.

I really honestly tried to like this style of shoe, and considered it for my most recent order from Koji Suzuki. I looked and looked, and finally identified this pair and this pair as being the most appealing. In the end, I realized that I would like them even more if they were actual lace ups, so I didin't pull the trigger. I do like loafers, and hope to have a pair of elegan slipons like the EG Bamford, so my dislike is not due to a general aversion to slip ons.

I have ordered a pair like these. It will be medium-brown suede with an elastic only on one side and without brogueing. Should have a fitting at the end of December or beginning of January.

I didn't think I liked this style, but both of those pairs look terrific.

Its half the price of bespoke, the quality of construction compares favorably to the finest stuff made by G&G, the leather quality is excellent and the fit is fantastic due to the forgiving nature of the side gussetting.

If my latest Clifford Roberts experiment does not meet my expectations, I'm running to LSBH to purchase this shoe in my size.

The shoe looks way nicer in person. The smaller brogueing & punching, coupled with the gorgeous last shape make this the finest RTW shoe every made.

Thanks - its not a bad idea. Though I believe the shoe is available only in black in RTW.

They are beautiful in person. A unique looking shoe and I love the AC last. I have a pair and always get nice compliments when I wear them. The LS website says the Churchill is coming out in burgundy next year.

i'd like more w/out the faux laces.

after seeing the 2010 i must say that i liked it better in the photo...i don't like the lack of stitching on the buckles...

Can someone explain the appeal of these shoes to me?
