    Is rain really a problem for suede if you just give it enough time to dry, and after that a little brush?


    Edit: check #5 in this Santoni booklet:


    not at all.

    it's just sf group...


    +1. Been wearing suede boots most of the past winter (rain, snow, salt - you name it) without any issues at all. I actually prefer suede to calf when it's wet outside.

    Handsome shoes, and fun laces, but you really need to learn how to tie them properly!

    How do the Dulwich fit? If I'm an 8.5D should I buy an 8 or 7.5UK?

    To me they are tied properly, I agree with you I could care a bit more about this secure knot that my father taught me. And a slight excuse, the laces are new and a bit stiff. But if you have any suggestions, you are welcome.

    How do the Dulwich fit? If I'm an 8.5D should I buy an 8 or 7.5UK?

    I have no idea. In UK sizes i have 6 1/2 F on those, they fit perfect; in C&J I have a 6 1/2 E; in G&G a 6 1/2 E; in EG a 6 1/2 or sometimes a 7 E, about a 7 in Berluti and in European Size a 40 1/2 in Vass.
    Hope that helps,

    Adrian

    It's a makeup for BB. Never seen it before. Very sleek last, for BB. I got them from a friend of mine.

    Those are terrific. Great for summer.

    You know what? I've also realized that I prefer the look of oxfords. They *do* look much cleaner.

    Mine are dark brown. Probably my photography skills at work again. Sorry.
