Edward Green Claverton - chameleon antique with loden suede

This is one of my trio of Claverton's and the only with a suede upper - worn with a jacket (tweed) and trousers combo. Personally I would not wear with a suit, not even a black calf/suede combo; however, think it works well for non-work environments when you want to wear suit but dress it down slightly.

In terms of a black calfskin/suede combo, I think it would work better with a flannel suit.


I prefer this style of suede over suede-only, not fond of suede-only shoes any more; although I do have a pair of C&J loafers that are suede-only

I have seen some nice versions of this in the Caulaincourt attelier in Paris. They don't appear to be on their website though.

Thanks. The EG you linked is very nice looking.



I am still on the fence about wearing with a suit. At work most of the time I walk around without a jacket, and some guys wear ugly ferragamo type loafers so I could probably get away with it. The G&G's in my first screenshot might prove to be irresistible.

I would be perfectly happy wearing either of those pairs with a suit.
