    Lachy, my navy odd trousers are a true navy, like the second option that you posted. I wear them with light blue, grey, cream, sand, or brown odd jackets.

    I also have a pair of cotton, herringbone weave trousers in a slightly lighter blue that is more like the first blue that you posted, but I find that they are more difficult to wear with anything other than a matching jacket (as they are part of a suit, although I sometimes wear them as separates) or with a brown jacket.

    Here's one example:

    Probably crushed heels more likely. This is the main reason why there is demand for faux lace-up shoes.

    Cheers. Yup agree with all of you, darker navy is the way to go.

    Is that photo the darker or lighter pair? Very nice outfit

    Depends what you mean - and where you are - all you need is Wapro Conditioner and Collinol shoe creams.
    Available from almost any cobbler.
    Even at bEastland.

    Friday night and no Rugby OMG just have to resort to Neil Young 'on the beach' and Bay of Fires Pinot Noir.

    Mod a very British Style by Richard Weight is a highly recommended read.

    As fxh said, you should be able to get Waproo and Collonil at nearly all cobblers. Saphir is not the only option.

    Sorry if this is posted before buy from the tmlewin.co,uk site? The geoIP functionality on their site keep redirecting me to the .com.au site where prices are more expensive and i cannot find a private proxy to fake my location.

    You should be able to select the UK store from a link at the bottom of the page. In theory their sites aren't geo-locked but they seem to periodically have 'technical issues'.
