Sup G! Cottesmore with a single application of brown saphir creme
It's a shame they don't do the cottesmore in a very dark brown as I'd definitely buy it then!
Where you been man!
Cottsmores look terrible!
Just kidding! They look good! It's amazing what a few coats of color can do!
I agree. My goal is to darken them to resemble a dark brown. thus every application of creme/polish will be a burgundy or brown. looking forward to the progression
I have this same shoe in a lighter cinnamon color. I love it. But I also like the color of yours. I've owned a lot of suede shoes and your color can be very forgiving. I recommend spraying them with a water proofing spray. It will keep them looking their best fo a very long time.
work, stuff, life, etc. SF wise, im spending a lot more time on the SW&D side. i guess you could say im spending more time with the sneaker crowd. today i wore these:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Them shooz has they own purse!
Namor, Those look Much better!! How did you apply the polish? Brush? Cloth? Would the darker polish "streak"? Have you attempted to darken further?
First off, I totally encourage you to experiment with coloring if you want to try. It's pretty hard to completely ruin a shoe. But I don't think you will be able to get it this dark unless you do one of those acetone strip and restain, etc.
I used to have a very light tan pair of CJ Polo Jodhpurs, they were one of my favorites but they fit odd, that is the only reason I got rid of them. The color was great.
lol. im 25 so whenever I go out, I attempt to dress age appropriately. cant wear my C&J austerity broque wingtip in cavalry brown at da clubz. da purse comes in quite handy... chapstick, credit card, keys, etc
not yet. ill post a pic after the next application
Tarmac, I agree with your point. Im not looking for a brown. a light brown will be just fine for me
Those shoes are just FANTASTIC...!
Cheers, PSG. I actually saw them in your post about your go-to items and pulled the trigger shortly thereafter. I've wanted a pair of suede captoes for a while and never pulled the trigger on suede McKays a few years back when they were on sale and regretted it.
I'm trying to ID these. They sort of look like C&Js with the brouging but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated. They do have 6 lace eyelets though...
ETA: I actually meant how the toe angles down toward the front, it's a compound angle that is kinda unique, i'd think. They are quite comfortable.
That's the most bulbous chisel I've ever seen
Doesn't look like CJ, doesn't even look like a chisel.
