    terrorsquad: I think I was close to buying the light brown shoes with suede upper in July. What model are they?

    Take a nice 2-night weekend trip to Budapest! I took an educated guess and surprisingly my U lasted shoe fits fine (I would even say a little 'loose' when I wear thinner/summer socks). I bought a 40 and my low instep in combination with the high instep last of the U I think privides good volume to give me a nice fit and not have the tightness people describe. My experience contradicts most of everyone's experience with the U. If/when I visit Budapest I might try a 39.5 just for comparison.


    It cost a little more and figured why not. Personally, just for convenience, I will get the spring loadd ones in the future.

    If i'm not mistake, they are approximately 540 euros. I'm planning to order one myself in antique cognac and add a compartment for my Ipad. I forgot to ask if they make it using shell cordovan.

    Lavazza, they are called French Oxford ankle boots. Mine is dark brown with dark brown suede uppers. Lovely. They also have one in navy with scotchgrain navy uppers.

    Why would you use shell cordovan for a bag? Have you experience with how it wears?

    If I might stick my fat nose in, I can think of three good reasons:

    - cordovan has that awesome patina, which will get better rather than worse with age, even without much care, so;

    - you'll have a great heirloom for your grandson that looks even better than it did on the first day; after all your shoes might not fit him, and;

    - it's hard to scratch and basically indestructible, so it should last for generations


    All that said, I just love it in that cognac scotchgrain. Then again, I love pretty much anything in scotchgrain....I mean..who doesn't right?

    Both look great! I dig the details of the brogueing on the black pair.

    The only shell cordovan briefcase I've seen is that odd model on BB's Peal series. Since shells are not too large, a proper shell briefcase would have the seams be part of the style. Most likely it would be far too shiny and eye-catching when buffed-up, but simply gorgeous with a suitable matte finish. Vass sure handles their shell, they'd make a mean case with it.
