Turns out it appeals to *provincial wally who shops in out-of-town retail park*. No surprises.

This ‘provincial’ really is the strangest banter. As if you come from somewhere oozing with class but if that was true you wouldn’t dress like DJ Steve’s on an End clothing sale rail binge Cool

Thanks guys - opted for the black. Managed to finally get the £40 out my Topcashback account, so the 20% off on the green was no real saving in the end!

Nay, there's a reason these things are still available in an almost full size run, after being on sale for over a month

Ordered these:


But they look more like this, the burnished effect (which I think is hand-applied) is a fair bit darker…


I don't think they make them in plain brown at the moment. Thirsty for some casual loafers as my Alden Cordovan are a bit smart.

The thing is they actually look more like this:



Nothing like the pictures on the Gucci site (the profile one above) which are pretty perfect. Their online customer service is shocking as well.
