    Those look amazing I have a pair of City II's closer to that color and they look even better as they have aged.

    Wear them well

    Thanks, Im hoping they will get better with age :)
    are you using neutral or brown cream/polish or mixing them for your City IIs?
    I was thinking to go pure neutral to get them slightly lighter in color.
    As you said, inside they look black.

    thanks.
    I'd be interested to see how they look now. If you could take some pics and post here or PM me I'd be most grateful :)

    These are a little older but have gotten significantly more wear.

    Now I look at it however you might have a darker brown starting point.

    How would you guys say the 9795 last compares fit and sizewise to, say, the EG 888/202/184 lasts? Or maybe the C&J 337/341? Thanks!

    Agreed. Andy as far as GY welted RTW goes (I.e. not including vass, st. C, or others), JLP blows everything else out of the water. No way is Edward Green's finishing as fine as this.
