    I think the lighter suede is known as "Fox" - and the toe treatment is nicer. I'm not a fan of the gum soles (or whatever they are called) but obviously that ain't relevant to this discussion.

    Pulled a few shots off google of non-boot polo suede in non-denim fits - and I'm still not convinced the color is exceedingly versatile:

    ^^What do you regularly wear that those color suede shoes can't be worn with?

    With respect to the slightly reddish "polo" suede, here are two pairs of mine:

    They are fantastic in the summer with lighter grays and beiges. I love love love the color.

    Yep. The Noodles/Formosa topic is getting really, really old. And the last couple of pages's worth of comments on the subject were mostly made by others, not Noodles.

    So just leave the guy alone. He made a mistake, he accepts that, seems to me he's moved on. So should we.

    Regarding those shoes, seems to me the pebble-grain STBs are slightly more formal than the suedes. And I really dislike that last pair in mustard suede - the colour just looks really off in that photo. IRL it might be different I guess.

    I really like both of these trousers. Anyone know what type of fabric they may be?

    Fuck me, looking at all these yummy suede shoes confirms that I may well never buy another pair of calf shoes again (provided the ones I own last the rest of my life).

    Not a fan of red-brown suede. Nothing wrong with it, I just don't care for it. I also wish Carmina did more with the Robert last and less with Forest. Forest is fine but Robert is similar and I think much nicer looking (I have both).

    I love suede. I also want a pair of split toe bluchers. But for the life of me I can't understand the appreciation for the suede split toes shown in this thread (my preference is pebbled grain). I don't like the way the stitching looks against the suede, but maybe I just need to see a pair in a chocolate brown to get the appeal? It's especially strange because I happen to like the Alden suede split toe boots I've seen. Folks, please keep posting more photos to help me figure this out!

    (Also Darkside, I'd so be in but I already have a similar pair of chocolate suede oxfords from Carmina, and I love them - their suede is incredible!)

    Please stop. You did something dumb, and people are going to razz you about it for a while. Then people will forget, for the most part. Occasionally, someone will still bring it up. That's life. Just deal.

    Question for tailoring. What would be an approx cost for having the waist and seat let out in a trouser? Obviously there is a tailor thread but figured didn't want to get into a huge discussion with pictures and why the alterations are needed.

    Also if anyone has recommendations in the Bay Area prefererably in the South Bay area :)
