    Seeing all these posts about Venetian Cream, does anyone know where one can get it in Europe? I've found one place which ships to Europe, but it's $39 in shipping alone.

    Generally, you'r right - if you're standing and your pants are a proper length, most likely no one will be able to tell the difference. Other times when your pant leg slides up sitting, or cross your legs, etc. - the boots will be noticeable. For me, I love the boot aesthetic. And, yes, I like the flash of the boot when I'm sitting. It's just a novelty that I like (especially since they are so rare). But, if you can only afford to get one, I suppose the shoes are more versatile, especially if you're not someone who's comfortable wearing a boot or your environment prevents them.

    Since both are so similar, my thoughts on their applicability (especially after having had them in rotation for the past year) is that they both work great with odd jackets and with suits that lean towards the casual. I feel they're just a bit too chunky for serious, professional suits. As a matter of fact, I just purchased a pair of C&J Brunswicks for just this very reason ( see post here ) That said, I've worn them with almost everything and I don't think anyone besides me worried about it, unless there was an SF'er present I didn't know about...

    If that is the case, don't worry about Venetian. Get the Saphir Reno. Ive used them both and its actually better IMO. Scratches come out with it and buffs up nice after use.

    BTW...Im still on the hunt for RL Cordo full strap pennys in size 8. Have cash ready.:D

    Thanks for your thoughts. I'm comfortable with and also like the aesthetic of boots, and my work environment certainly permits them. I do happen to run hot, so that is also a consideration (Marlows might be a touch cooler). I'd wear either shoe casually with chinos and denim most of the time, but when I was considering the Marlows, I realized that they might also be able to be worn with a suit (people wear LWBs with a suit, and the Marlow's last is sleeker than the Barrie). So, I was contemplating whether the Lindricks were just a bit too informal to be worn in the same way. It's not a terribly significant deciding factor, though, since you're probably right that a "suit shoe" is best for conservative suits, and otherwise the Marlow and Lindrick would work equally well. Whichever is more drool worthy in person is likely the right choice.

    The smell of Cordovan is getting stronger.





    They must be getting closer to my house.

    I hear the sounds of little horses galloping in my head as we speak.

    Please don't be. I was able to negotiate with them to order just 1 tin and even with the additional charge for shipping, it came out to be cheaper than the earlier link. So thanks!

    :cheers:

    If anyone has ordered a Lindrick in 11D which they are planning to send back, please let me know.
