    Nice Soph, really nice. The U Last toe looks best unadorned, I think. It's like the long hood of a classic British roadster.

    ---- I'd have to agree other than perhaps their medalion. Vass's 3 eyelet London I have is probably my favorite shoe in red cognac. The vamp is extraordinary yet not over the top. I really love that shoe. I will buy one in dark brown also. Highly recommended.

    Just checked in after a 2 day absence. Great chukkas!! I think I've just decided to put a pair of tan suede chukkas on my wish list.

    Great boots. When I first read the title of the thread, I was worried that you are injured the great boots and was prepared to offer my sympathy. Glad I was wrong and that you can enjoy the testaments to simplicity.

    Now do I get an exacting belt in dark suede?
    It might be a bit much, the more I think of this rule?

    Thoughts?

    Actually I'm getting one today, as I guess it won't look too much and probably spot on.


    Soph, go for the belt. I ordered several belts from STP last year and one of the belts they shipped was wrong--it was a Robert Talbott chocolate suede belt that I didn't order. I decided to keep it, even though I didn't own any suede shoes at the time, because I knew I would eventually buy at least one pair. Now the belt is indispensible with my chocolate suede C&J wingtips. I think you really need a suede belt to wear with suede shoes.

    Thinman,

    Agreed, I just purchaed the CnJ dk brown suede, as I felt the color looks to match the best and the quality is probably of a higher grade.

    Sutor Mantellassi and Orciani also make damn fine suede belts.

    ---- I didn't see anything at Lance's that matched[​IMG] but the CnJ seemed so ideal and my size [​IMG]

    Matching is the tricky part. I've actually started having EG make up belts for me with my shoe orders to avoid the issue.

    Yes, I got lucky that my Talbott belt matches my shoes in both color and nap of the suede. I think matching the nap is also important and is even more difficult on the web than color matching.
