    The burgundy ones are amazing, would get over brown all day every day.

    Also they look much better in person than those pics which seem to distort the true shape of them.


    did you order them directly from quoddy? i would love to see a pic. i think i'd be happy with either the brown or the burgundy. just don't wanna wait for months to get them though...

    They're pretty cool, very unique in person. I think they would look great with denim, might try them on if I go down there this weekend. The rings are a nice touch.

    jet, what'd you think? i need to plan when i can get up to SW to try them on too. maybe a Barney's sale --> SW --> vintage shops trip.

    I don't have them because my size sold out a long time ago, I just handle them whenever I go they're lovely and dirt cheap imho. The burgundy is beautiful, I would never get brown.

    I think you should check them out, they're one of those things that if you try them and you like them, everyone will follow suit. I have too many shoes so I'm cutting back myself.

    Has anyone picked up the brown/burgundy boat shoes w/ the siped (white) sole? I'm curious what these look like with darker denim and/or shorts. They look great, but not sure about $125 great :p

    Thanks!

    can anyone recommend some kind of leather protector to apply to my quoddy's? or is it even necessary?

    I would say it isn't necessary with a boat shoe. They look better with character.

    Character and cracked leather are different all together.

    Condition them with a leather conditioner and a clear paste polish every now and again. Don't be afraid to get them dirty and dusty but, cracked leather just makes anything look cheap.

    If I need a 7 1/2, where do I buy these without having to wait two months?

    And by these I mean bluchers in either brown or burgundy.

    I think Quoddy just recently increased their prices by 30-50%. And South Willard just sold the pair I was interested in. ;_;
