    I'm looking forward to wearing my BB Peal calf/suede specs this summer. Any thoughts on caring for these? Aside from carefully applying conditionner and wax on the calfskin, should I treat the suede with suede spray?

    PG,

    I saw those in the WAYWRN thread and I really liked them.
    I was particularly impressed by the way that you've apparently managed to match your bag to your spectators - are the corners on the bag navy like the specs, or black?

    C&J have a spectator called the Gerrard 3 on the 348 last in bracken leather and stone canvas in a UK E width. Retail (including VAT) is listed as UKP265.

    If I thought it would fit me, I'd buy it without hesitation!

    I love these Trickers that salsalocust posted a while back. I'd love to have this color combo made on the EG Falkirks.

    I cheated - I have a copy of the C&J catalogue for 2008-09 and it's listed in there.
    I don't know if any of the usual dealers have the Gerrard, but you should be able to order it directly from C&J, although their delivery charges are rather steep. According to the catalogue, they charge UKP30 for delivery to the US and Canada and UKP40 to the rest of the world.

    There's a picture here:

    Quick question: how does one care for the canvas part of the shoe? I've seen a pair of beautiful burgundy calf and beige canvas captoes and I'm considering them. What's worrying me though is the maintenance part.

    I sorta liked the EG specs on the 202 last (brown + beige fabric), tried them and was considering purchasing but finally came back to my senses and realized there's no way I'd wear them so purchasing is pointless. If you keep a tightly edited shoe collection and resell when you have too much specs are out.
