Peal closed its doors in 1965. The SA and I had the conversation in 2012, and he was convinced Peal was still in operation. I just let him talk. biggrin.gif

That reminds me I need to watch the video. Only read the article like everybody else.

Looks a lot better namor. The world didn't implode when you used shoe creme on cordovan as some have adamantly said strictly not to.

What type of shoe cream was it, in case we get in the same situation?

Btw the shoe cream worked great on the dry shell. Feels smooth to the touch and stays smooth after 2-3 min of brushing:
 

 

What cream did you end up using? They look nice and healthy now!

I have a quick question. I currently have the Lindrick and Marlow PTB.

I know the Lindrick with a navy suit doesn't work well.

Now, how about the Marlow PTB? Does anyone feel the Marlow PTB can be used with a suit?

When I wear my Lindrick with jeans, I feel good with it. When wearing the PTB with jeans, I feel it is a tad bit formal for jeans.

I don't wear suits very often (maybe once a year) and have a standard black oxford laceups for those occasions. However, I like the dark brown cordovan color of the Lindrick and PTB and think this color of shoe would work very nicely with a Navy / Grey suit. Just the shape doesn't seem to work.

Can someone give me a quick primer on how to determine if a shoe works with a suit? Does the shape/last has to be more narrow near the toe? And are cordovan shoes/boots relegated to casual wear only? Are there any cordovan shoes out there that would be good for suits?

I am sure others will chime in, but the general thought is bluchers are only appropriate for suits in more casual fabrics, specifically flannel. For a true navy business suit, a blucher like Lindrick/Marlow can look out of place.

 

That being said, 99% of the people around you won't notice/care.

Thanks for posting these pictures, Namor. I LOVE these things. I thought it was Barney's or Bergdorf that sold them?

Is this particular pair for sale somewhere?
