    It's a shame they don't do the cottesmore in a very dark brown as I'd definitely buy it then!

    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.

    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

    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.
