    Received a compliment on my penny loafers today:

    (a dog had just pooped in the grass but the owner did not pick up its shit. A stranger, who also saw this stopped me to point out what had just happened)

    Hippy Janitor: Did you see that?
    Me: yeah, what the fuck is wrong with people?
    HJ: i'd watch out if I were you. Your shoes are nice, what are they, like $80? You dont want to get shit on them
    Me: :sarcasm:

    Considering the guy might have already been a seasoned janitor when the Hippy era came, accounting for inflation, the novice estimate of the gentleman seems about right. :D

    Good point. I forgot to mention it was a poodle.

    A, I sold/returned all of my duckies. A DB rep even contacted me to arrange an exchange or refund or gift card but I decided against it. just sent the black beauty back to Gilt as i didnt foresee myself wearing them. Afterall My $80 shoes weren't going to wear themselves

    I thought there was an 'all sales final, no returns' type of deal on the Gilt ones?

    Polo model name is Alton. Don't know what C&J name is. I have only once seen this shoe under C&J name, a pair in brown calf offered recently by A Fine Pair of Shoes.

    Just got a hardly worn pair of the Marlow penny loafers which I'd been thinking about ever since I saw this post. They were a little dry when I got them so I've followed the instructions in the Leffot video and they seem to have come out really well - the sun hasn't risen yet over here so I've not seen them yet in natural light. I'll take pics later but I'm a happy camper! The brown on these is really special.

    Please excuse the lower quality of the phone camera pics. Here they are:
