Green Suede Spectators

two tone spectator

A deep green suede can be one of the most attractive leathers to use on a shoe, particularly if it is done right. I, myself, have been searching for the right one, but have yet to hit gold. Found an olive green suede one, but it does not quite hit the nail on the head in terms of tonal perfection! Oh well, soon enough. This model here on the other hand, which I am not positive on who the maker is, but I am pretty sure that it is Edward Green, uses a shade that is simply sublime! And if it is Edward Green, it makes a lot of sense as the suedes that they use always seem to be of the richest and most elegant shades. Jealous!!

Anyway, I do love a spectator and wished that more of the rest of society did too. I can just imagine how cool it was when they were the norm and you were looked at as un-stylish if you did not have one. Those were the days. But if history repeating itself is a concept that rings true, then hopefully one day soon (preferably in my lifetime) we will get back to that frame of mind. Probably a fat chance but one can dream….

I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend

Best
