scarlet red laces work great with black shoes.  brown, not so much.  perhaps lilac or purple will add a bit more depth.  or maybe yellow for flare.

the shoes are of the wrong tone IMO, a light blue might look better, but for me this is a case of just trying too hard, why not wear a wig and a ping pong ball on your nose too

edit; perhaps colored laces will look better on suede shoes

Fritzl,

the Saint Jame II are realized on a fine leather with a form with verticals marqued and really narrow soles.
The laces came from my own choice.

we've been kidding about the laces... i've used red a lot, when i was young. actually those damned krauts wear red socks all the time, which reminds me of pippi langstrumpf and clowns.

i cannot see the benefit of a tight waist and none of the makers i used mentioned it. it must be due to the different tradition.

generally speaking, i like your pair. i don't care for oxfords, though. so, it's not on my list.

imo, good leather is mandatory to me.

In the respect that the old stuff is very dry and not too pliable, the new stuff looks similar to RL but will not dry out so easily. Plus Tony said its a better leather in his opinion

Does anyone else find the G&G sharp round, sharp square, deco and (most) bespoke lasts to be comically elongated?

Not at all - the shape is precisely why I prefer these looks to the look of more traditionally shaped English shoes.

Doesn't mean there isn't a place in every man's wardrobe for both looks by the way, and IMO.
