post #22516 of 51871

Anyone else interested in anything from Epautlet over in the US? Thinking about trying their chinos for some variety in my casual trousers, and might as well split shipping if anyone else is keen.

The Rivet chinos?

Brooks Brothers Shell Cordovan Bi-fold Credit/Card Case in Cordovan

 

700700

Wow, I usually don't feel inclined to comment on a wallet/card holder but thats damn nice, tip of the hat for picking that one up.  Does the ebay seller you purchased that off have any others going or was that a one off?

 

Is there anything that doesnt look good in Cordovan, sure doesn't seem like it.

I wont mention price but the ebay seller had it marked at about 33% of the Brooks Brothers original price.

Ahh Sunday night ironing... Made only slightly more palatable by the presence of the cricket.

Where it says 'black-polished' on the herring shoes website does it mean the leather is inferior to what they list as 'black calf':

e.g. Reading compared to Severn

or  Glasgow compared to Tamarhttp://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=7&catid=59&shoeid=2806&selectedsizeid=3&selectedfitid=3&stype=1

And would you guy's buy any of those above; looking for a black wingtip or semi-brogue? Am gonna send a tracing of my foot to get sizing; thanks for the width advice guys really appreciate it :)

Black polished is corrected grain. CG leather can be used to make up for worse leather an is generally though of as a less elegant choice. To be entirely truthful I'd steer clear.

The rest of your question is a touch vague, but I'd go the 2nd shoe if I had to chose.

New shoes (sort-of)! My bedroom slippers have well and truly bought it so today I bought some red fake denim-y espadrilles from Target. Not bad for $10 smile.gif

 

Not sure what last they're on ...

post #22526 of 51871
Corrected grain has its place. FXH wrote a nice piece not too long back on its merits, but for mine, I want nothing to do with it. I think it's inelegant at best, and feral at worst. If high shine is required, I'd hope to invest sufficient time and effort to bring a gloss finish to calf, or earn enough to pay someone to do it. Otherwise, I like calf a lot more. If wet weather is a concern, then cordovan or a waxed calf is always a sound option.

Or suede.

Thanks guys based on this I'm down to the Tamar and the Severn; it's pretty much blucher or oxford. Personally what would you guys choose?

post #22529 of 51871
The Oxford style.
post #22530 of 51871

I like the Oxford as well.
