    My sweater is olive - just a bit darker than the shoes.

    I'm green with envy Gdot. :fonz:

    How do the Septieme Largeur sizes run in U.S.? I am an 11.5 U.S. but the sizing on their site is in UK sizing which I have found can be between a half size to a full size different.

    Isn't it possibly to spray suede with something to hide the scratches a little bit? I mean they are beautiful shoes but those scratches, damn...

    Don't be too envious. They are really not 'all that' in terms of quality. Although they sure are fun! And I'm happy to own them. Mostly it's fun to get your own custom patina finish.

    I sized down one whole size from my US size and that worked for me. This is typical for me with most UK sizing.

    They only have a few last shapes so sizing with them seems fairly uncomplicated. Or as uncomplicated as buying shoes online can be.

    Nice shoes Gdot. Not a lot of room for playing with the lacing pattern however, and the grandma knot, well... I tie mine the same way.

    These are actually Cole Haan.

    I do not own any Cole Haan/Nike lace up dress shoes, but I do own some Cole Haan loafers from the Bragano line (which are made in Italy).

    These loafers are also made in Italy, although not part of the Bragano line. The croc is actually pretty good quality on this pair of shoes (and priced accordingly).

    Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life......

    My granny knot tying days are over.

    I can only thank powers greater than I can comprehend that I have been enlightened to the error of my ways. :tinfoil:

    I have these same shoes Harrydog, Vintage 2005. I posted a pic of them in this thread around the end of december.

    Yours have much more of a two-tone effect than mine. Did they come that way or did you induce the effect?
