Pasquale cordovan loafers. Alas, they are too small and have been returned to Mr Porter.

^ what were your impressions? odd looking shoe but I like it. RL make a similar loafer without the kiltie. Love the stitching on the toe.

I haven't yet, but given the posts here, I'm sure I will join the club eventually. Somebody in the thread, waaayyyy back, busted it right after they took them out of the box and tried them on once or twice.

If you pull at the tongue to get into the shoe, it will break.

Everything you would ever want to know about shoelacing methods.


For the wingtips, I use this one: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/straighteuropeanlacing.htm

me. very first time. has happened to both my pairs of C&J boots, 4 boots total. I honestly thought they were there as factory decoration or something, like the sleeve tag on suits.

It broke because I was too lazy to unlace the top two laces. I'll need to whip out the old thread and needle

Eh, mine broke almost immediately on both boots and I haven't missed them. The tongue stays in place (for me) just fine. I'm happier without them being in the way as I get the boots on and off.

In all seriousness, I think they are just there to be broken and make the shoes non-returnable. If C&J were serious holding the tongue in place I think they would use something more than this flimsy little stitch to do so.

Anyone have a picture of the area?
I'm curious

They do seem like the Marlow tassel with a kiltie. They seem to be on a narrower last though.
Definitely would have kept had they fit.
