Spectator Porn - Page 30

post #436 of 750

I just got these yesterday, the Marlow by Herring. I fell in love with them the minute I saw them.

Spectators, a modest collection. Thought I might revive the thread.

Great collection, CH. Plenty of colours and textures.

Thanks, VR. I think I'm going to take up swing dancing so I can get a chance to wear them more often.

I think I recognize some, but could you ID them for me? I've been thinking about taking the spectator plunge, but haven't yet. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks for the IDS! I bought some Sargent leather/tweed captoes this summer, so I guess I have a pair of spectators after all.

Gorgeous. I never fully realized what a vast variety of specs is out there.

Just discovered this thread, after wondering where Close Hoarse got the shoes in his display pic (Herring Fencote?)

 

I'm in!

 

Herring Henley II in grey canvas and chestnut calf - surprise gift from the Mrs the other day.

 

 

 

 

And their "sisters", the original Henley, and definitely one of my favourite shoes:

I don't know anyone else who likes spectators; maybe that's been holding me back.  But seeing your collections has inspired me once again...there will be MOAAAARRRRR....

Getting ready for Summer.

 

I just ordered a pair of C&J Hamptons.

 

 

Hope to have them by the end of the week.

The internet needs a close-up of those Paul Stuart's the next time you wear them.

So what products do you guys use on you Spectators? I would imagine Saphir Reno would be Ok on the white portion of the shoe, but do you guys use a white shoe cream as well?

Nice choice for your new shoes.  They really are beautiful.

 

I would recommend using the renovator of choice (go, on, say "renovateeeeur" just because it's a French one!) - I use an all-natural-but-no-dead-minks-in-it one called Renopur, which is awesome.  But whatever.  Use that all over. Wipe off any excess with separate cloths on the brown and white parts until the cloth comes up clean.  Then use a tan/brown cream on the dark parts, and again buff until the cloth comes up clean.  Then use a clear wax all over to get the shine.

 

I think that's the best way of maintaining colour on the toe without risking any overspill onto the white once you get into the polishing stage.
