Gave them a quick cleaning, but will do a more thorough job before spring arrives.
Very nice. Yes, that is the Malvern. I think that the spectator version is commonly referred to as the Malvern II or III.
I know that it is subjective, but for balmoral (or oxford) shoes, I really prefer the "bar lacing" (ie laces that go straight across over the top of the eyelets) style - which you've used on the first pair of black wingtips you photographed - rather than the criss-cross, under-over lacing style. The latter is fine on bluchers, but just jars with me on balmorals.
