Will let you know soon. I have some ravello nst boot on Aberdeen waiting at the house, will try them tmrw and report back.

What are those wingtips? RL Darlton/Marlow? Man, they look great. The new ones I just got are more cigar with a greenish tint and I'm a little disappointed.

Thank you my friend...

They will lighten significantly over time and exposure to light.  You are correct, they do look outstanding!

Thanks everyone. They are C&J Marlows... A cheap eBay score that has definitely seen too much light. But I still love them. Here's some better shots

Edit: lighting changes a lot... Half the reason I love them. I'm always looking down to see "what shade they are now" depending on location

wear your suede in good health

Thank you, Uncle. The new house has lots more closet space for my humble but growing collection. The suede promotes good mental health because it's so comfy. Hope all is well with you these days.

Nice shells. Gorgeous color 8s!! thumbs-up.gif

As I started my day today, it was supposed to be an ok day... Cloudy and overcast but no rain, nonetheless, I put a coating of Alden Defender on my very shiny shells...

As fate would have it (and taking into consideration the only profession I know of where people get paid for being wrong most of the time), I was coming out of meeting this afternoon and found myself in heavy downpour, teaming rain... And I look down at my shells and shook my head saying "Oh crap"... Made a dash... Got soaked ... Including the shells... I figured I was destined for chicken pox'd shells for the next few weeks with vestigial marks to remind me for years to come ...

I have to tell you, defender worked great, I wiped the shells down in the car, looked at them tonight and not a blemish to be found... Stuff works great... Thank you Alden!
