    a good example of what thrashed suede can look like. looks pretty cool, imo. like they've really lived.

    how does one even get it to be like that in those places? is that just normal wear?

    Yep, they sure do... In black and No. 8 shell, they refer to the V-tips as an Algonquin blucher... They're nice, I bought them in both colors...

    Denim hems rubbing against suede have done that to various pairs of desert boots I've owned.

    I just bought some snuff suede PTB's from Epualet and sprayed them with AE waterproofer. They seem to have lost a lot of that rich texture they had before I sprayed them. I've brushed them for a while after they dried, but it's just not the same. Any advice?

    Was told that the American Bar Association has provided a corporate code for are all if its members nation-wide to use during this BB Corporate promotion (30% off). Any lawyers out there using this perk? If anyone is looking to pick up some shell tassel mocs, I'd jump on'em soon. Contrary to LS's characterization of the perf cap toe oxford/bal, I've heard the true attorney shoe is in fact the tassel moc. BB may have a depleted stock by the end of the week!

    I bought a pair from Amore Clothing last year, around $575, tax included. I think Rob (Robert) was my contact person.

    The suede spray? or did you get something else? I used their suede spray on two pairs of shoes, and it had no adverse effects.
