    I'm not exactly sure where to ask this, so I'm asking here:

    I just bought a pair of RL suede loafers and wanted to know the best way to care for them. I know the basics, keep trees in them at all times, don't wear them in the rain, and other basics, but can any of you give me a more in depth way to care for them so they last as long as possible?

    I would spray with a suede protector, then brush with a suede brush now and then. Clean stains with a suede eraser if needed. If the shoes get very dirty, wash with suede cleaner, let dry, then use protector.

    They are slightly tighter around my instep than expected, but the rest is spot on. I imagine they'll wear in nicely.

    Yes, sir. I was just taking a picture of the undercollar dart on a Dries Van Noten suit.

    These are Adelaides in what looks like burgundy / oxblood, but the image doesn't capture that very well. I will try to post better pics later, all I have now is my cell phone [​IMG]
