Wow, great choices @medtech_expat I'll everyone of those.
I should have done a before and after in the same light, but I mixed in black on these and it made a nice subtle change.
Looks great! Is the underlying color more of a mid or cherry red?
What's the material code?
Very nice colors..compliments.
Thanks, and it is CRU611. LS photo...
Shouldaville - those are really beautiful.
Thanks Roger! Now if I could just get four more in the same day like medtech.
Those burgundy Austerity Brogues are a favorite.
Great picks Medtech, I especially love the brogues.
How does the Kudu suede feel, may I ask? Softer than calf suede? Is the leather also quite thin?
The kudu suede appears to be thicker than that of calf, with a more dense and raised nap. I'll be totally honest that I picked it more for color than for any appreciation of any inherent qualities of kudu. Phillip made up a pair of tasseled loafers for me last year in the exact kudu suede and it's held up really well.
Random plug for Saphir suede spray. I wore these very suede brogues for the first time today and it was quickly assaulted by coffee dripping from a Starbucks cup (ironically, this happened at the G&G boutique... go figure). Happy to report that the coffee wiped off completely without any trace of discoloration.
Total win win. Congrats on ur choice.
Great shoes Eddie! Congrats!
