    not sure, if correct...? HAF sole is more catering to the metrosexual vibes, imo?

    I got my Oundles in Whisky Cordovan D 202 on the 1st day of the pop in sale since that was what was available at the time for 11/11.5ers like me.

    Since I dont share USers fascination with cordovan if I could choose i would definitely have the Chestnut Antique D 888 shown above. As for the other three, no thanks

    In any case I have started my personal antiquing project[​IMG] so i expect to somewhat make up for the limitations of the original purchase

    I want to have a slightly darker tone in the toe box area. Currently the shoe color is completely uniform, which i find somewhat boring.in particular for a shoe with such a 'large continuous surface of leather'' as the Oundle. You can see the toe box antiquing on the D888 in Chestnut Antique shown above.

    I use what in the uk is sold as 'renovating polish' in a darker colour when i want to gradually darken an area of the upper. Plus some saphir creams in between applications. Eventually you get somewhere, where that is no one knows until they finish but i promise it will not look stupid

    sure, I install dark elbow and knee pads right after I buy jackets/shirts/trousers.

    They work both esthetically and like toe plates insofar as durability. You cant go wrong with this.

    does anyone have a lead on lasted EG shoe trees? prefer stateside and hopefully at a discount, which is why i've held off contacting EG themselves. looking for 82 last, 9.5/10D if if matters.
