Here's an example of the work done here in HK:

Given the rather light colours of the JL for Paul Smith shoes, I'm sure a custom patina would look awesome and at the same time, unique!

How much is that please, if you don't mind sharing?

Buy first. Ask questions later. Color is an easy fix.

I am fortunately enough to have those shoes not in my size.

I can't believe you guys let a pair of suede Jermyn III's sit out there unattended...

Oh and someone please tell me those sold out St Crepin 2009's weren't available in 8.5 or 9. I've been looking for those since....well, 2009

There was one pair on sale in B&S just this year, used.  And the other time was sometimes in 2010 AFAIK.

 

I bespoken mine.  A. Meccariello does apple peel style wingtip as well.

The Meccariello version is much nicer.

A very soft leather designed for comfort and easy maintenance. This leather does not crease
