    I would attempt to polish them with black like the old Churchs "cherry reds". It will tone them down a bit and give them an awesome antiqued effect. But of course I forgot they are shell. Will that take colour?

    No. They are something which one busts in another's gluteus maximus.

    I can confirm that returns to Mr Porter are free as I've personally used this service.

    Cloakroom does Grenson as well.

    On Mitchell Ogilvie, they also tend to get in the worst possible examples of those brands which doesn't help.

    On buying OS, I'd suggest the popular forum thoughts on buying AE & Alden is coloured by how much easier they are to get in the US, along with the ease of recrafting there.

    Finally its worth mentioning Deer.

    Thanks for your suggestions mate. I wasn't thinking when I ordered them. I intended to wear them at work (office environment). I think you are right about the dark blue pants. Hopefully midnight blue pants will flatten the cherry a bit. I found a belt which I think may work.

    Yes, I've seen Naka's suede shoes and they are excellent.

    That is a ballsy colour. I think it would look amazing as it antiques. Don't bother matching the belt with these shoes as it will be much too matchy matchy, even if you did manage to find a belt in the same colour.

    Re: Trouser colour, I would wear these shoes with practically any colour trouser. The great thing about getting shoes in such an FU colour is that they go with almost any colour I reckon, it's just the tone of the colour which you may need to look out for. Just go with what looks good to your eye. If you mess up, consider it a learning experience.

    I checked out the loakes at DJ's in the city this afternoon and they were pretty good. I had a look online and they are within my price range :). Thanks for the suggestions.

    On a different note,

    Does anyone know and have experience with a good alteration place in Sydney besides Hayel?

    I've used Hayel for many2 years now and in general is quite happy with him however I would just like to see if there are alternatives.

    Thanks

    I walk past the Cloakroom in Sydney super regularly -- what are the prices like for Grenson? I've always been reluctant to head on inside -- I feel like they dick-ride virtually every online trend they can, and a little too late at that.

    The Pistols at Dawn stuff looks okay, though.
