    Nice job you did with them. I like the color. I oftentimes think tan is too light for all year wear.

    Nice look!

    Do you have more than one pair of Tan Pembrokes?

    The cavalry calf Pembrokes look really nice. How do you find they hold up? Do they tend to crease about the same as full grain, less or more?

    I'd like to see more pics in the wild if you care to post more.

    I heard something from the SA at the local RL store and was wondering if anyone else had heard anything similar. I've been working with him over a couple months to find the Cordovan Marlow wingtip in 9D hoping he can track one down at another store. There's been no stock for a while in that size and no recent returns either. He just told me a couple days ago that the word on the street is they will not be renewing stock of that model any longer. Once the current inventory is sold out, that's it. He said they've already discontinued the Marlow PTB. He said they will join the Lindrick and Gianni. As far as he knows they will be keeping the Marlow loafers however.

    Has anyone heard the same? How would he even know? If this is true it's a bummer.

    That would be a bummer. I picked up some Saphir Renovateur today and the Marlows were my first target. They are gorgeous shoes. Unmatched.

    Cleav - when you make your polish "homebrew" do you layer it on or just mash all the colors together? I'm a dark(er) shoe guy and think my Pembrokes need a bit of this treatment.

    Since they are made by C&J, wouldn't they be able to get those done? Just narrow down your UK size, right? The 325 last is pretty popular. I'd like to get some brown shell PTbs.

    just light layers of what is at hand, may be a first step being a brush over with something a little darker and see where it takes you

    it'll come off anyway if you don't like it :)

    This picture is pretty bad, huh? :)
    I've only had them for about six months or so, but I'll try to grab some pics, that show creasing a bit better.

    Hot!! What a great colour.

    I know it is annoying to be told this, but you should give the straight-across lace tying a shot. It looks nicer. I was told to do this by a friend, and it was quite annoying, as I thought I knew how to tie my own shoes. As it turns out, I had to watch 2 hours of Youtube videos on the subject, and still couldn't pull it off myself. I had to ask my secretary, who is good at braiding, and promised her the day off if she figured it out. That didn't work either, so I asked my wife for help. That seemed to work initially, but then I couldn't tighten the damn laces. So I had to bring them back to the store for a a tutorial, but I am still hopeless trying to do it myself. Now, I get the store to lace them up for me, as it saves a lot of grief. Who would have thought this would be so difficult lololol?!

    I think that straight bar lacing looks better on an oxford. On a derby, especially in that tan color, I prefer criss cross lacing.

    That is good to hear, as if there is a consensus that criss-cross works on a derby, it will be a helluva relief for me given my personal limitations in effecting the straight lacing.

    True beauties, though quite daring of you to wear suede in the rain! :)
