Something like this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/ALLEN-EDMONDS-BELT-STYLE-TWIN-STITCH-CHESTNUT-SIZE-36-/251168962220?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Belts&hash=item3a7ad636ac

 

 

 

 

Doesn't need to match exactly, just be in the same ballpark.

Actually C&J is one of my fav brands. But after trying G&G I don't think about it anymore, but from time to time I buy C&J (can't spend G&G money all day long)

Your call - depends on how you want the patina to develop. When I can be arsed to polish my (chestnut) Skye, I often use burgundy cream and mahogany or medium brown polish. Have a play around, you can always change course if you don't like the results. Neutral is too boring for my liking; I don't use it at all. Adds nothing to the character of the shoes.

They are not on crockettandjones.com maybe it's a bespoke shoe from them?

I took delivery of these guys a couple days ago and have not wore them yet other than on the carpet, indoors.

C&J Selbourne in Chestnut calf, handgrade on last 358, size UK9.

Even though true to size, my size, now I wish I have bought them 1/2 size smaller, they look sooo long

Just polished them a bit, other than that factory finish.

Will use Saphir mahogany cream combined with Medium Havana to buid up a darker patina (I have both creams).

Photos follow; thanks for looking

I think it's the same loafer as one I saw on eBay recently (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Crockett-Jones-Dark-Brown-Grained-Calf-Leather-Loafer-Shoes-UK-8-US-9-D-RARE-/360495778480?pt=UK_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item53ef390ab0) but in suede. Never seen it anywhere else. The fact that it is sized in US sizing suggests that it was made for the american market.

Maybe, or an old collection that C&J don't have now. They look ugly there (I don't think it's the same) those in suede was so awesome.

Beautiful.

 

I use burgundy cream + tan/dark brown/black wax polish on my tan Chepstows.
