    How much? I brought my suede lunargrand wingtip to CH Shangri La last Sunday to have it cleaned, but they don't have the cleaning kit for suede material. I'm thinking of bringing it to another branch or just buy my own cleaning kit. Have you tried it already? Effective ba? :)

    Here, they sell colored laces for $17 a pop.
    This made me think of a way of getting more of them for less - eBay!

    Plan on ordering at least 5 different colors :)

    Here's the link by the way.

    This is just P495 and is already my second kit. Don't use any cleaning liquid on suedes, just 'erase' and brush off

    Ooh, even better!! Rustan's is a nearer (cheaper) option than eBay! Thanks, sir!

    Thanks for the eBay link, too, PJ!

    The Fifi flat. Love that there are some options for us who don't wear high heels.

    Hi Sir,

    Does the P495 tag include the complete set as per your picture? Did you buy this in G.H & Bass Shangri-La?

    Thanks!

    Yeah, everything you see on the picture :) Bought this at Robinson's Galleria; I'm sure it is available at all their stores.

    Thanks for this guide!

    I think it also depends on how tight the width of the shoe is on your feet.

    The laces I got from Traffic measure about 70cm, which is a tad shorter than the stock laces that came with the shoes. But it still fit fine coz the width is just right that there's no gap to show the tongue. They also have 90cm length so maybe I'll get those next time.

    ^Looks wicked!

    But I'd think twice wearing it regularly, as Metro Manila's "dirty" pavement and rough streets might ruin the sole and scratch the edges.

    My Lunargrand Apron Oxford has arrived. Good fit. This will be my new office shoes. :)

    [​IMG]

    It came with a $50 discount card which can be used up to January 31 (for purchase of $150 or more, and not to be used with other offers). Anyone who needs it? Just shoot me a message so I can give you the promo code.
