I've worn suede bucks since I was 10 years old.  I have coveted these shoes for several years now.  I would probably drop $900 for a pair of these BNIB.  Hell, I'd trade any pair that I currently own for this make-up (BNIB).  :worship:

Following row (l to r): 4060 #8 captoe boot , AoDC cigar Captoe boot, Leffot black Alpine Grain Graintrippers

Bottom row (l to r): Leffot #8 LWBs, AoC cigar LWBs, Frans Boone Chamois/snuff saddles

It's too bad the lighting is terrible in this room. There's some good looking stuff in there.
Still have that empty shelf up there so there's still room for the collection to grow smile.gif

Finally finished sanding down and coloring the edge on one of my AE Patriot loafers, I figured I better stop and take a few pics before attacking the second shoe.

 

I used Saphir fawn cordovan cream as the base color and then finished with two coats of AE chili edge dressing. I did not want to do full chili as the color is quite red by itself. Unfortunately the cordovan cream kind of blocked the edge dressing from making it an even color. I was not sure what to think at first but the splotchy finish kind of suits the casual look I am trying to accomplish. The uneven color also hides any black dye underneath that wasn't quite sanded off and it helps the transition to the black welt.

 

Overall I am pleasantly surprised at the end result and looking forward to finishing the second shoe this week, what do you guys think?

 

 

Before and after, cordovan bloom and all.
 

 

 

Comparison shots next to Alden antique edge.

very clean work!  But too much contrast between the light edge and the dark welt, no?

Long time lurker, first time poster.....  I have really appreciated all of the amazing information (and photos) from all of the kind contributors to this forum. 

 

Looking for assistance with recommendations for a good cobbler in the Orange County (or Southern California) area, who can work on shell cordovan and put some new heels on a pair of #9015.  

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thanks!
