Check out the lasts my friend. Dundees are on the 1 last which is wider than the narrow 5 last.
He is probably referring to the AE Polish or Conditioner.
I'm not sure which c/c MWS is referring to but Saphir (Saphyr?)cleaner/ conditioner(Renovateur ) will not effect the breathability of leather . It does however contain mink oil which is often used as a waterproofing but not in high enough concentration to cause this problem .
Everything about that ensemble is awful; the tie is just one part of an otherwise frightening whole.
Tassel loafers in shell cordovan are terrifically classy; they are also, IMO, the most formal of the loafers (tassels, full strap, penny).
I am referring to Allen Edmonds Conditioner/Cleaner. As englade said, I don't think you need to worry about breathability of the leather. Unless perhaps you are using way too much.
Thanks. I'll give AE's a try.
In other news my Delreys in Chili came today!
(Before a good clean and polish)
Walnut Strands today.
perhaps but there is a stark difference between fashion and understated elegance.
To be honest I like it . I dont really follow fashion but I do find it stylish in a good way
Not exactly like that, but the discontinued model, Astor, is a wholecut tassel loafer.
Gents, I noticed a peculiar problem with my brown shell Patriot loafers about a week back. If you look closely in this picture (I apologize for the picture quality but my camera is not very good at taking macro shots), there appears to be a dent which looks like a crack in the shoe. This is just one of three on one shoe; the other has dents but not enough to become cracks.
I've applied renovateur and cordovan cream to challenge the idea of it being a welt... and it seems not the case. I've only worn these shoes about eight times or so; is this crack my fault?
I cannot see the crack you are referring to but to put your mind at rest there is nothing you could do to a shell cordovan shoe in 8 ,or even 80 wearings for that matter,that would cause them to crack unless they are defective . I am sure that if it is a problem AE will make it right If you are interested there is an Allen Edmonds /Horween promo video wherein the AE rep mentions the fact that shell cordovan has a tendency to crack during the lasting process . This could be what you are seeing
Anyone know how the size of the Sedona's run? They are on clearance now and I will pick up a pair for the summer. In most shoes I am a 13B, but I plan to wear these without socks so I might try a 12.5. I'm not sure whether to go 13 or 12.5.
