Picked up a pair of unlined snuff suede penny loafers from the ShoeMart irregulars. Hopefully it's something minor and the shoes actually fit me. I have the hardest time finding loafers since I always get heel slippage due to my skinny heels.
I am inches from pulling the trigger on the 966 but I'm not sure of sizing. I've been told that they run unusually narrow even for Aberdeen. The nice lady at Leffot (I think it's Che?) told me she would go with a width wider (i.e. 10D to 10E). Haven't been able to try on yet. They do seem pretty close to my J Crew tobacco waxed LWB, but the flat welt and aberdeen last make it easier to dress up. At least that's wjat I'm telling myself.
270-degrees can be sleeker. I don't think you'll find much difference otherwise, unless it's something like the Alden 404 that needs a 360-degree welt because of the storm welt. The shoe will have a steel shank regardless of the welt.
does Tarrago Nano Protector affect the color?
i know the saphir Super Invulner suede protecter is safe to use on white suede, but would Tarrago Nano Protector discolor white suede?
