Rosewood cc reminds me of a Spalding basketball.
@thebeebs HeHe .. Yeah .. Must be due to a "leather dots" all over and a similar color..
Called the Jermyn store yesterday, wanted to order a Walnut/Mink Galway with shearling I saw in their catalogue online, however they informed me they don't stock it nor they will, and it has to be ordered at 1,000 GBP/ 1,700$, no VAT deduction for me.
They will start receiving a Galway Rosewood country in October priced at 850 GBP, though one can purchase it cheaper here right now:
Wow, I'm quite surprised about the reluctance towards suede oxford brogues. To me they seem like a very classic, almost conservative shoe...
I totally agree. Suede oxfords are great and versatile.
Looking great! which colour is that? And I don't think a full brogue like the Malvern would be any less versatile
Thanx! It is actually a Vass in mid brown. Agree on Malvern.
Nice. Would be sweet if we at some point could get a GMTO going, though I reckon it'll be uphill after the Nevis MTO-spamming. And moreover I would probably need F-width on the 888 or 82
Hey - it's only money.
I share the reluctance of those on this thread. IMO, suede is better suited for derbies and casual boot styles.
+1. suede oxfords make no sense to me, unless you're a pimp.
Does that mean that I must become a pimp, because I already have the shoes?
Hey, it's what all the top pimps are wearing! Pimps must dress very differently indeed in certain spots. I've been told my black and grey Vass spectators are pimp shoes as well. If I ever decide on a change in profession, I am footwear-ready.
I don't own a pair of suede oxfords, but they are on the list.
Good info! I know nothing about that trade but I'm here to learn Seams that I should but a pair of spectators as well so I'm safe when I make the career switch. Or maybe I should just sell the suede oxfords...hard choices, think I need to ask my GF
in which universe is a suede oxford a pimp shoe?
the only suede shoe I couldnt wear would be any combination of balmoral and wingtip*
*unless i got a nice price on it of course
