I like this... the burgundy and the tan elastic are perfect bedfellows!

I never understood the appeal of pebble grain, scotch grain or any of these simliar treatment. Wouldn't it be better to just go exotic if this is the texture you want? I guess that might have something to do with the fact I wore suit pretty much all the time, just seem too casual too me.

Can someone advise what the best generic shoe tree is for the 348 last and 236 last? Seeing as the C&J trees aren't lasted, I don't want to spend over $100 on a pair of shoe trees if they can be had for a fraction of the price and fit better. I assume most people would recommend the Epic shoe tree but I'm afraid they will be too wide for the 348.

Very nice Cliffords. The 337 last is stylish, but probably not my cup of tea. That said, it's affordable: EG is about £200 more.

I just have the proper size AE shoes trees in my 348 Drummonds, they fill them out nicely without being to wide. You can get them for $19.95 with free shipping from AE....

This shoe is also on the 348 last.

Does someone know whether these are MTO or a new model?

Fantastic! I love Connaught.

May I ask what sort of polish you use and how much time you had tp spend getting them like that?

Hi NDD

I think it's perfect as a first affordable, quality shoe. It hits that sweet spot between price versus quality. All products used are Saphir MdO. As I already had a mirror going, it took just six thin coats; this over a previously applied layer of Renovateur. Total time was less than 20 minutes. Each top-up thereafter will be about 5 minutes.

I know how derailing threads is frowned upon around here, so I'll simply point you to:

All the info is there smile.gif
