    Great looking shoes, Andrew. Glad you decided to keep them and nice to see you posting.

    337 last? MTO, I assume? Very nice, all of them.

    Thanks guys! The C&J are on the 337 but aren't MTO. They have a model name that starts with a B, it is escaping me right now.

    The Westfields (from the catalogue) have some brogueing and a medallion, and are in Tobacco Calf Suede. Different last too: 341 - benchgrade. (Sorry for the list, nii.)
    These seem to be Espresso. They look like Hallams, but on the 337 last.

    Ladies, Gentleman, and srivats: I present the very first pair of suede shoes posted in this thread, these Lattanzi loafers:

    Suede is a napped leather buffed on the grain surface. What you boys have here, page after page, is reverse calf, where the full grain is simply turned inside out. It is not suede.

    It has been a pleasure visiting all of you.

    The jacket buttons too, or are they just plain reverse calf?

    (Corozo, right?)

    I thought nubuck was the grain side and suede was the underside?

    contradicted by every popular source on the web. both are sanded or buffed to produce the nap nubuck is buffed on the grain/skin/exterior suede is buffed on the opposite side

    Nubuck is a napped leather buffed on the grain surface. What you boys have here, page after page, is suede, also known as reverse calf, where the full grain is simply turned inside out. It is indeed suede.

    I believe that my post is pretty popular, judging by the response so far.

    That's all you got?!? What happened to the snark. You mock 522 posts, 35 pages of thread - you call out srivats (that was kinda funny) and that's all you've got?
