Did you finally get your Guillaume, any initial impressions or review?
I'm still waiting on the pair. The head of operations, Daniel, reached out to me, asked me to return the pair of Chelsea because of a bad cut of leather, and promised me two properly quality controlled pairs. I'm assuming that's causing the delay.

Saphir Medaille d´Or Dark Brown is the one we use for CU Museum Brown 👍

I am posting some of the FALL/WINTER 2020 season models we have in Museum Brown so the rest of the community knows the type of leather we are talking about.

I hope this helps!

This leather also looks great if you polish with SAPHIR MIRROR GLOSS or SAPHIR PATE DE LUXE WAX POLISH.

Let us know if you have further questions regarding how to take care of this type of leather.

i'm pretty happy with the brown suede oxfords.
But just curious - what kind of suede leather do you guys use?
Can i expect it to last a long time?

Happy to hear you are happy!

The Brown Suede we use in all our models on our actual collection is the best Suede category (most expensive) from Charles F. Stead. It is not Split Suede.

If the Suede is protected from the beginning with SAPHIR SUPER INVULNER SPRAY and maintained using the Suede Shoe Care products the leather can last forever.

Of course, the way they are used is very important. For example, we recommend not to use the shoes 2 days in a row. Also that they "sleep" with Shoe Trees on. And if they are not going to be used for a long time (eg. summer) then keep them in the cotton shoe bags they come with.

By the way, what is the Suede Oxford model you have from the list below?

Brown Robert suede 371 w/ Dainite soles.
They’ve held up rather well but I don’t wear them more than 1 day in a row.

That´s good.
What about Shoe Care? Do you use anything in particular?
