    (is there any 'automatic' way of cross referencing posts on SF to avoid load on server?)

    Goodlensboy - You made the right choice - the Tom Fords were not worth the extra change. Sutor makes a great loafer. Are they lined? Sutor often uses a bright blue or red lining - which adds a little extra fun for the wearer.

    Simplico - Very nice, you've put my lowly Finsburies in shell to shame. I hope you are a young man - because those shoes will last at least 30 years of steady wear.

    Thank you for the kind words. I will use the break in method and the Mac method. Yes, it is my plan to wear these shoes for the next 30 years. That should take me up to 73. By then I might not look so hot, but I think the shoes have potential.

    It's a sad day for any man when he realizes that the leather on his shoes is soon to be more supple than the leather on his face. But it beats being underground!

    What is the break-in and MAC method that you guys are referring to? I got a pair of these that I haven't worn yet either. My first cordovan shoe.

    ^ That takes a lot of beating to wear down the fully nailed heels like that.
