Unfortunately, last one cost 2 1/2 times the first one. frown.gif discount was only 16 pounds. Would totally jump all over it if it was aroung 150 pounds. Personally just don't like spending too much on suede.

I'll spend a little on suede shoes, but understand why some are hesitant to do so. Too easy to mess them up.

Nothing wrong with the first pair either. I like Chukka's, but find I don't wear that style much anymore.

suede (at least good quality suede) is much tougher than you think.

Always pre-treat with a little spray protector (non-silicone variety) and you are good to go.

of the 3 i like the hatfield, check on the C&J for seconds tho. usually the damage is negligible, like inside the lining or not even anything visible, but worth making sure. they make it clear in the item description, they dont hide anything. good peeps.

acc to resident expert DFWII or something like that, suede is actually extremely durable, and easy to fix up. who knew?!

Redgrave is nice and is part of the newer Exclusive range. Leaning more towards the Hartfield since the toebox is not too elongated; the C&J might look too much since it is a plain toe. The thing with the 348 is I know it fits well. Trying a new last (Hartfield) is always a bit risky. I'm sure I will make a decision soon...

Ok I admit "too easy" was not the right way to express it. Yes good suede is durable, but it's still a material that you have to be a little more careful with then straight calf leather. I own some nice suede shoes that I have spent a pretty penny on, but know others who are hesitant to becaus of this.

good man. it's much more difficult to get rid of a spot on calf leather than on suede. the shoe care thread is full of this sh.t.

+1000 on this.

How do you see people WASH calf skin shoes?

Steven at Leffot washed his Alden suede chukka under a sink without any ill effects. I did this too with my suede chukka.
