Actually they are blue. Leather is "Deep Sea" Baby Calf. Was hoping it would come out a little lighter to show up some antiquing down the track. But I need them to be dark enough to wear to work later so happy anough with colour anyhow. Laces obviosuly need to go though. I assume they are just cheapest possible placeholders for the fitting process

Thanks Romp and JM.

It's a suit I'm eying off, in navy with brownish stripes. Absolute stunner but would only get worn half of the year in Brisbane, which I suppose would assist its lifespan...

A heads up before I put these on B&S and ebay.

 

If anyone's interested, I'm selling a pair of Church's custom grade Darwin penny loafers in brown calf. Marked as a UK10G, I reckon they would suit a UK9 with a medium to wide foot.

 

I'm a UK9.5 or UK10 and these feel too short - the width is fine. The shoe is on the 93 last.

 

AUD120 including shipping within Australia.

Thanks for the responses concerning ties. I'm really happy with the way the tie has come out, bar the bump. If you feel it it's as though the lining has bunched up. I'm considering asking my tailor to open it up and see if he can fix it, or try it myself. I will try your method first, fxh.

And here you can see the bump on the top piece.

Talc powder? Something to absorb the oils rather than smear them all over. I reckon pour on, leave for a day or two, then dust off. Seems to work for most oil stains on my clothes.

foxy - hard to tell without feeling it (as the actress said to the bishop) but it looks like as if the lining has twisted and / or been ironed into that shape?

You could easily undo the tie stitching yourself - c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y - possibly fix it and then stitch it up yourself - c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y -

Definitely.

 

I once got a laksa stain on a brand new Zegna tie. Sent it off to the dry cleaners as a last ditch attempt and it still haunts me to this day.

Items include C&J Connaught, Henry Carter pocket square, Ateseta tie, Zambelli shirt and Anthony Squires suit.

 

The missus said I scrubbed up all right.

Besides, you ice the area, then scratch off protein stains! 

 

Blend the powdered form into one's protein shake. Waste not, want not, as my grandmother used to say.

On topic; brown suede penny loafers recommendations. Have at me. Almost wearing through the heels of my driving mocs that I've been wearing casually, and wanting something where I can replace the heel once the rubber is worn down. Next level heel walker, reporting in.

There are many choices. What's your budget and what kind of brown?

 

LIke this?

 

Darker like this?

 

First is Kimber, the second is Carmina.

I don't like the split toe much.

Probably got me on that one :(

 

Seriously though, I like penny loafers. The Aldens are a classic, though I don't mind the C&J Mertons either.
