Anyone know how long Drakes take to deliver?

I think he has very generous conditions
Tres cool, n'est-ce pas
Sorry - don't seem to be able to edit at the moment.
The comment above about generous conditions was about the workers in the Brunello Cucinelli factory - may explain his CRAZY prices.
I reckon burgundy is a great choice. I have two pairs: some dress monks and suede brogues. The dress shoes goe really well with navy or grey suits, and the brogues look terrific with jeans, or slacks in navy or charcoal.
They are very nice - I did a bit of searching and most MC people say that burgundy is even more versatile than brown, so I think I'll buy--these are the ones im looking at:
For me I don't like those - too shiney and I don't like the shape etc - I don't think they would be versatile. . Thats personal not objective view. Still they are better than most shoes and each to their own as they say.
I've got 4 burgundy - 2 x chukkas and 2 x shoes.
I tend to prefer a very muted burgundy these days and feel some of mine are too bright and red-ish and shiney.
But that varies - sometimes I just wear shoes I don't like for a day* and then I find they aren't as bad as my mind imagined them while they were hiding in the cupboard for 6 months.
Subtle burgundy is very versatile and goes with almost anything - in fact all I can think of it doesn't work with is my pink/red chinos.
Its one of the few ways to make black pants really work outside of the melbourne/rockdog look.
* I've now started to wear whole outfits, and combinations, that I don't think work in my minds eye and have been unworn for 12 months. Surprisingly a large amount of them work out ok. Unsurprisingly some of them are wrong, just wrong and not good.
Can i see a pic of your muted burgundy - i also struggle with my redish shiney carminas...
and on a side note - I can never get brown to work with black!
Brown and black can work, but I find it needs to be a greeny dark brown, not a reddy brown.
Is that corrected grain I see before me?
"Leather from which the grain layer has been partially removed by buffing to a depth governed by the condition of the raw material and upon which a new surface has been built by various finishes."
I was going to suggest a pair of Alden Color 8 plain toe bluchers or, if after something more elegant in shape, a burgundy shoe by Carmina. Just my opinion, but either of these options is nicer and will stand you in good stead for longer than those CP shoes.
I must admit I'm a sucker for a rubber sole....comfort is a must for me. If the Loake Badminton came in a burgundy I'd be all over it.
All of the above
Imported park av's ? I think so, may be seen around Sydney starting tomorrow.
