    Damn suede shoes are a bitch, wore them out for a day yesterday and (being very careful) got a few stains and even a brown colored scuff which I have no recollection of.

    PG posted this image from Loro Piana a couple of weeks ago, and I can't get those suede tassel loafers out of my mind. The colour of the suede; the rather discrete size of those tassels; perfect. Most others I've seen have too prominent tassels for my liking. I imagine LP charge an arm and a leg for them (I might check out their shop on Bond St next time I'm passing just to see): does anyone know where I might find something similar?

    LP claim they are made of something called "waterproof suede" - is there such a thing?

    Won these Cheaney wingtips on eBay a few days ago.

    Now to research cleaning suede while I wait for them to arrive.

    Not too pointy, not too bulbous. In other words, "just right".

    I just spent a few minutes going over this thread and have decided that my lack of suede shoes is a deficiency that I will have to remedy in short order.

    Yes. But it is simply treated suede that you can do yourself. I had a pair of Heschung suede shoes that were waterproof. I wore them everywhere in the rain. They were rather dark brown and never showed any spots. However, if I walked for a long time in driving rain they would get wet similar to a regular finish oxford.


    I treat all of my suede shoes with waterproofing spray as soon as I get them. It often darkens them slightly but I rarely have a problem with stains or spots that won't easily wipe of with a metal wire suede brush
