To be honest, I'd tend to believe that it is in fact florecent lighting that "fades" the color on these shoes. I'm no expert but mine were almost surely a "floor" model (bought on fleaBay) and I think they must have spent a good part of their early life under store lights. I do like it but I'd hate to say sunlight does the trick and have someone ruin a beautiful pair of shoes unknowingly.
Maybe someone wants to take a photo of your shoes in an exact location (and time of day/lighting), then leave them out as long as possible between wearings at say, your office, under florecent lighting and then take another photo to match the first. Maybe settle it once and for all. I can't help as mine are already so light

i am very happy you answered my question, mr. sheep. thanks for the info.

i was hoping though that you had some kind of secret sauce for aging the shoes like yours. oh well, ill have to try some of these idea.

thanks again!

Stitch just wear em. No need for "aging."

They look much lighter outdoors too

Thanks RTP! I'm so used to looking at Alden cordovan options that these are a true change of pace. Shined up really well too.

Happy to help (or at least attempt to)

I would say try leaving them under florecent lighting. Luckily I doubt that will hurt them but I have heard on fairly good authority that it will achieve your desired effect. And if not, no harm done.

Best of luck... But most of all, the previous advise is basically perfect... Wear them!

Stitchy, aren't you behind the curve to be picking up Marlows in late 2013 or is this a replacement/alternate pair?

Whoa.

Whoa.

48.7k posts and First? Shell? Purchase? You really are an anomaly.

Alright then, congratulations! You certainly picked a fantastic pair to jump in the pool with. That said, let me plant the next seed in your mind: Lindricks.
