Is that their cavalry calf? What's the main difference?

No, the Pembroke comes in cav calf. Swansea is regular calf.

I believe cavalry calf is their nice term for corrected grain leather

As for the Swansea, nice pair.

I returned mine, however. I found them to be too pointy. The 325 last is much more ideal for casual wear. I picked up a pair of RL Marlows instead

AYO!

but seriously, you posted it to solicit everyones ideas, and i am saying i do not like it, and would not recommend buying it.

but, if you want to buy it, and then wear it, and then post 600 un-spoilered crappy pics in 25 different threads all across the forum asking people to share feedback on the fit, hell, by all means go for it.

Hehe, that's a good point. Would be a shame if these were only used for suits, as I seldom wear suits. But we will see how I like them worn casually once the temperature drops a bit.

You misread what I said. I said I don't like them for casual wear. Too pointy.

No, I think I got the gist of it. You thought the shoes were nice, but that the last was too pointy to be worn casually.

 

And I was trying to say that our opinions on that might be different, but I don't know if that came through in the text.

Unfortunately the shirt is defective. Not only is it much trimmer around the waist then the blue version, but it's also got one less button so it stops buttoning above the waist. Trip to a Brooks retail store tonight for sure.

frown.gif that is a scandalous and mightily unfortunate discovery.
