    The Finsbury is one of the best brogues out there IMO.

    Looking good, Gdot. You've really been on a shoe spree lately, haven't you?

    These remind me of an elongated PRL Darlton. Maybe it's a narrow size?

    Ich Dien - Thank you! I'd have to agree with you about my excellent taste! :D

    Forex - OMG yes I've been on a total shoe replacement spree this fall. I cannot continue at this pace much longer - but year end profit distribution came out yesterday so I think I've got a few more up my sleeve in the coming months.

    Anden - The Finsbury in Cordovan was purchased off the peg from the C & J Store on Jermyn St. Although doesn't seem to be in their current catalog. Damage was 470 pounds + lasted trees and minus VAT at the airport.

    Rikod - Thank you!

    Achilles - Standard width. The last is a bit enlongated, which is my preference.

    Thank you. I would love to have a pair of both! Do you find the double sole to wear a bit warmer in the summer? My Darltons wear warmer, but maybe it's the shell cordovan...

    Achilles - Today is the first day that I've ever worn a double soled or shell cordovan shoe in my life. So I have no frame of reference for warmer weather. To my eye they are such a 'winter' shoe visually and color wise that I currently imagine they will rest in air conditioned comfort during the warmer months while I wear the single soled Italian loafers to which I am accustomed.

    I'm currently working on the premise that I'm 'English in the winter and Italian in the summer'. :embar:

    You have to be when you live in the South. My cordovans sit in the closet in the summer, they are too hot to wear.

    I think perhaps we all deserve a shoe cerkle with all your purchases this year. Feel free to wait until you're finished at the end of December.

    I was going to ask this very question a week ago. When polishing my Conistons prior to wear when I rubbed them over with a white cotten cloth a darkish brown color came off on the cloth, not lots but a bit and was a bit concerned. I did get to thinking that maybe some shops may apply some cream to shoes if they have them in the stock room for a few months to stop drying of the leather although the reply from Northhampton Novice makes sense. My boots were perfect otherwise so I did not worry about it too much.
