HRH Prince Charles and his old bespoke shoes



It seems his HRH Prince Charles cherishes his shoes very much, earlier on this blog I wrote about HRH recycling a pair of bespoke(Lobb) oxford's, which has been in service for more than 40 years. Apparently HRH has a few pairs which are older than his sons and he does use them after all these years. From the below pictures one can see HRH wearing a black straight cap toe, then a burgundy punched cap toe. Followed by a very beautiful burgundy or oxblood  coloured full brogue.


I anticipate that the full brogue is the same pair of shoe, so all in all we see HRH still recycling at least three pairs of bespoke shoes, which are well looked after and cherished by his HRH Prince Charles. 
Note the well polished & patina on all shoes, that glossy spit-shine. 


Message to all shoe-lovers, Shoe AristoCats is: "Look well after your shoes, and they will serve you for decades to come".
