    how long have you had the tetbury? They look more worn than the rest. Is it because of the nature of the antique nubuck?

    Wonderful set overall.

    Well done Holymadness!

    Wonderful set.

    Wonderful set overall.

    Thank you. [​IMG]

    They are all relatively new except for the Lowndes, as the idea of creating a small but versatile shoe collection on a single last only became my goal recently.

    The Lowndes (burgundy) is probably about 2 years old and has been recrafted once by C&J.

    The Westbourne (black) and Edgware (tan) are brand new, just back from the cobblers and have been worn once each, I think.

    I've been wearing the Tetburys pretty often for about 3 weeks. The antique nubuck is extremely supple, rippling quite a bit more than calf, but not in an unattractive way. The creases are very fluid so they aren't nearly as prominent in real life as the pictures suggest.

    After a 2 day trip to Chicago...Imagine being surrounded by drunk girls at a club spilling drinks left and right.

    I don't understand why the need to wear suede to clubs. I've always worn shit beater shoes and I don't think people really care about the footwear when its so dark.
