Cheers for the tips ^! I've never even tried on a pair of loafers, I did see some chap wearing some extra bulky burgundy leather loafers in Charing Cross that looked pretty good.

Is the Trickers outlet in Northampton worth the commute from London?

The Crockett and Jones factory shop is a short walk from the Trickers outlet and that's great.
Open very odd hours/days though so definitely check before you go.

Can anyone offer some shoe care advice, please?

I recently bought a pair of Joseph Cheaney shoes that were ex-display. One shoe is slightly paler than the other as a result of being exposed to sunlight. Any ideas on how to get the two shoes to match? There's the obvious ones like exposing the darker pair to more light, or polishing the paler pair. Will applying lots of cream/polish restore the lighter shoe?

These are the shoes in question:

Thanks.

Yes. Took a punt and bought them from eBay. They're perfect in every other way. I could live with the slight difference in colour. I was hoping there was an easy fix to even out the colour slightly.

Sorry, didn't see this. Was a few years ago I went but prices were very good.
I got some loafers for £130 that were seconds and I genuinely can't find anything wrong with them.
Boots were about £170

There's also a Churchs outlet with same prices as Bicester/Cheshire Oaks etc

Just wear em as is mate. They'll even out over time and until then if someone asks you about em, just say they're an EG or Eent collab.

Any ideas where to buy CDB replacement shoe laces / flat ~70cm beige laces?

As far as I can see the options on eBay don't look quite right.

cheers.

Was the difference mentioned in the listing? If not send back for a refund. Then either resell honestly (probably for way less) or chuck em. Life is too short to compromise on some things.

I'm pretty sure it was West Country inbreeding which messed your feet up.
