I can pronounce Terre de Sommières. No idea how to pronounce diatomaceous though.

It might be a challenge to get the stuff here.

Japan is a major producer of diatomaceous earth and that should, geographically, be closer to you?

 

In my personal experience I am not convinced that at this late stage it is going to pull up any of the oil, though.

Have you considered having them cleaned? You can do a full water wash of the shoes.

Tomorrow Pitti Uomo starts again. I've started a new Pitti 90 thread today, and will update the #Pitti90 tag with new threads throughout the week.

I'm not quite sure what you mean, but I have a couple of Il Bussetto business card holders like this one from Stag: https://stagprovisions.com/collections/il-bussetto/products/il-bussetto-business-card-holder-orange. Actually, I've got a number of small leather items from Il Bussetto and I'm fond of all of them.

It almost rhymes with booty-licious, which is conceptually much more highbrow.

Nice ok.

I am looking for a credit card case. Browsed Il Bussetto and they have. Any other suggestions as well?

I have a really nice one (I think!) from Smythson (http://www.smythson.com/men.html?cat=751&limit=all). They usually have a bunch of different styles from the quite large (holds 12 or so cards) to the much smaller. Mine is basically a 3 + 2, though I rarely carry more than three (think it's the "Mara", but if not, it looks like that). Nice leather, fits perfectly into the breast pocket of a jacket, minimal bulk.

I like this one from No Man Walks Alone http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/leather-accessories/sol-brown-humphrey-leather-card-holder-949.html  $60 after SF10 discount.  I've been very happy with it.

Gentlemen, any thoughts on these shoes in comparison to one another? The first is the Herring Richmond brogue, the next is Pediwear (by Barker) Craig brogue.

I'm looking for an inexpensive dark brown Oxford, and with Loake unavailable in the US, these are the best I've found so far. I've avoided Meermin due to quality control issues.

In my experience buying shoes online, quality control is superior for Herring branded shoes compared to Barker, which I've also purchased from Herring. From what I've seen, Barker's finishing standards can be a little sloppy. While Herring isn't perfect, they'll usually bend over backwards to ensure you're happy with Herring branded shoes, providing of course your expectations are comparable with money paid. Personally, I don't risk buying Barker shoes online anymore, since I've not yet seen a pair I'm happy with (have had to return twice in the past). If I could buy in a store, where it is possible to see a pair prior to the purchase, I wouldn't necessarily have the need to avoid Barker.
