Lovely, as always.


For some reason I especially love the flat laces on the Grensons.

With the Mackay I'm starting to think you're running out of styles of shoes to get so you get unusual leathers... Nice in the summer though.

Oh, if only that carpet could talk, the tales it would have of fine shoes that have rested on its elegant fibres to be immortalised by the camera to feed the pr0nographic desires of the filthy savages on SF... (including myself )
P.s. love that Grenson! Edit: Oh crap, I am almost at 1k posts. Err, I better get some actual work done

Thanks VR...The Grenson is a wholecut and a really beautiful color too. The AE's come courtesy of another Forumite, thanks John!

Much aprrecited! The Mackay photogrpahed hideously with all the detail basically lost. I've got to improve the lighting situation so that I don't ahve to use my flash which washes out (and lightens) everything.

I'd have succumbed to the Grensons' wily charms if they were available in my size

Thanks for the kind words! I actually prefer lighter color suede and will were these with basically any color suit or trews. I only wear dark suedes with dark colors like charcoal and darker browns and olives.

Doc and Skalogre...The Grenson's are quite elegant and a beautiful color too. IMHO, these compare well to the John Lobb "Fardon" Prestiege punch captoes that I have. And your spot-on Doc, they were a steal and the seller literally got them to me from the UK in three days.

Very nice. I love the suede Mackay, and the Bradley holds its own quite well in that group, I think. It looks surprisingly Aldenish in the picture.
