    Check out: http://dandyshoecare.tumblr.com

    It's basically like refinishing them. So f you have a light color he can likely make them look however you want

    What would you have them do?

    If you want them to work on it, whats the point of ordering that pearl grey effect in the first place?

    Would be pretty expensive for just those changes, you might be able to do it yourself.

    Color matched? You don't like some contrast?

    Does GG even have a mink suede? I've only ever seen mole, fox, and polo. Wake me up if there is ever a Vintage Oak Antibes or GG06 Mink (Not mole) Suede Arran.

    My only holes now are pretty much the classics.

    I have some GG suede samples on hand (which is why I'm suede obsessed), and there is indeed a mink.

    I would be down for a Mink suede Arran on the GG06 last. Like you, I'm done with the dandy stuff, I just need some basics now...
