    Hi @FrankCowperwood - thank you for your enquiry.

    The boot is approximately 15 inches high including 1.5 inch heel. The forepart of the boots is a smooth calf leather, the leg is a grained leather. The last is perhaps just slightly narrower at the toe but basically similar to the 4831 in fit, they would expect the same size to fit the great majority of the time, This is as supplied to military all over the world - so for the price point we would not question the quality of the leather or the construction.

    Please let me know if we can be of any further assistance?

    Kind Regards

    Mike

    Hi Mike,
    thanks for your kind reply. no worries as I am keeping them. It must be a faulty product from CS but it is what it is.
    Regarding the patination, I understand now "wine red" is more about dark antiquing on edge/corners, maybe it is hard to achieve on belts. As for the brownish colour, I can see other retailers are also experiencing this issue on "wine red" styles, seems they run out of red dye recently.

    Hi @WilYa
    Thank you for your understanding on this matter. We don't have any stock of the wine colour - I've just ordered some more - I'm interested to see for myself. What you say about darkening at the edges makes sense and perhaps that explains things. I am also seeing our Carlos Santos rep tomorrow - I'll see what he has to say about it.

    Hi All

    I have just finished seeing Bill Perry, the UK Carlos Santos rep. As well as a brief chat about the Patina belts (see above) we looked at possible MTO styles for our Edward and James brand. Carlos Santos are such a great brand to work with - they are so flexible in terms of what is available. It will be a while before the ideas discussed today are put into production but we are excited about the possibilities.

    Patina Belts
    We like the Patina belts and judging by our customer's response we are not alone. @WilYa raises some important points above - and we will have a look at our new stock to ensure the photos we are showing are representative. Bill and I suspect part of the issue is as WilYa has highlighted - the lack of 'edges/corners' means the Patination is not quite as spectacular as is seen on the footwear.

    Existing Carlos Santos - Edward & James Collaborations
    For those of you who might have missed them - we currently have two styles in our own brand Edward and James which are made in Portugal by Carlos Santos:

    The Holcott boots have proven very popular in our offices - many remarking that they are one of the finest MTOs we have had made. A combination of handcrafted quality and contemporary styling ensure these boots are a pleasure just to pick up and admire - and they are even better on the feet!

    Made on the gorgeous and popular Z401 last, our suede chukka is made with a studded rubber sole. The Z401 shape along with the acutely angled facings add a contemporary touch to the perennially favourite brown suede chukka boot.

    Many more updates will follow as the Autumn season gets underway.

    Hi Everyone

    This is the first of quite a few updates for this season. Jeffery West is back at Pediwear. We particularly like the chukka boot and monk shoe - so we asked our photographers to design a banner around them. All of the styles exhibit the decadence and flamboyance associated with this unique brand - so please take a look.

    retailer-range-cheaney-banner.jpg Hi Guys, I thought fellow Cheaney fans might like to know about these four specials we have just had in from Cheaney. The quality to price ration is perhaps even more favourable in this range. Made on the 205 last, and using colours including our Cheaney favourite, Dark Leaf they represent exciting opportunities for new and existing Cheaney fans alike.

    Hi All

    We are very pleased with one particular Carmina addition to our range this season:

    [​IMG]

    We have called it the Alaro - but it is the 80105 Oxford on the Simpson last, in brown museum calf. The Simpson last creates an elegant Oxford, and the museum calf is a delight to behold. See more on our site https://www.pediwear.co.uk/carmina/products/9454.php

    Yes, one slight correction though - they are actually brandy calf, not dark leaf. However, it isn't far off the dark leaf colour and I think we might actually prefer it to dark leaf. Glad you like @wurger
