I do too! it is easy to take care of and has better character to me. I love the texture it adds.

I don't baby my shell but water marks are a bother to me. I love the patina and creasing that it gets but those water marks can be a pain. For very casual wear, i'm fine with it but I'm not a fan of using them for dress wear at all.

Is suede harder wearing than I realize? I spilled something (beer or liquor I think) on a pair years ago, tried everything I could find online to get it out with no success, and never bought suede again.

yes it is, just use a suede protector like tarrago nano protector or other water proof spray.

This exact model and last (12056):

I'll be honest, this looks like a potentially very nice make up. I really like the apron.
But I'll quote someone wise (I can't remember who) who once said,
"But I need another pair of loafers like I need a hole in my head."
Lol.
Good luck though, I hope you find your 2 other guys.

Guys, we still have pretty good stock levels of a lot of nice Edward Green staples like Berkeley (wide fit), Asquith and Inverness (my personal favorite Oxford from EG). Help me clear these out. biggrin.gif

We're aiming at mid-February, but it's still undecided.

I agree, there's a huge difference between a nice patina and a bunch of unsightly water welts.

 

 

I find that "newer" shell tends to be more prone to water welts. As the shell ages and the patina develops, water welts just don't happen as much. That's been my experience, at least.
