    Thanks Savo, I agree those suede are pretty close but those black US ones are not. As a sister with five brothers, the right clothes and shoes were a hot topic in our house. Everything from how shirts were ironed with sleeve creases in the right place, to which were the right shoes.
    My grandad had the handmade brogues very light tan size 11 huge things like boats, my dad, ex-army, was the one with the highly polished shoes, black wingtip or Oxford shoes with blue and grey suits, brown brogues with Prince of Wales checks etc.Later on his grandsons wanted his brogues because they were so well looked after.
    The brothers had the whole range from Chelsea Boots,desert boots, comos etc even had to be the right work boots.
    Suits were made to measure at Abrams,and tuxedos were worn when working the doors in city clubs.
    Grandads overcoat was a Crombie, he was over 6ft and it was incredibly long, as a kid you couldn't lift it off the hanger.Silk scarves, ties and caps etc were all carefully selected.Sports gear was strictly for the pitch and trainers for training.No slobs allowed

    I only ever wear desert boots, they are easy on the foot and wear well, getting a tad costly though, never heard of these como type though !

    hi savo, i was at cardinal allen school in honeysgreen lane in the sixties and all my mates had comos but i couldnt afford them. i pestered me mum for weeks and eventually got some (mine were black leather by the way). i've been trawling around the net for months and the ones iv'e found nearest to the design are the black suede. i realise that they are not exactly right but not far off shape wise. have you looked at the oxblood ones on fleabay (i left the item number) the photos iv'e put on are small but if you look at the ad they are a lot bigger. good luck and if i find any i'll be back! hasta la vista
