Come sea, sand, storm and salt, you’ll always leave others in your wake with a Ladies Schooner Sailing Shoe in Navy Nubuck.
Hornblower: “Bring this scull round four points to lee’ard, Mr. Midshipman Brummel. Get your oars to pass! The monsewer’s a third-rater, I’ll be bound, and she’s squaring her braces and sheets ‘til the yard is athwartship. Get your salts get amongst her with belaying pins! Smartish!”
Brummel: “...Sorry, haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about. I was admiring your Sailing Shoes? SCHOONERS, aren’t they? So trim and smart. And in Navy Nubuck too. Such a change from the usual brown leather.
Hornblower: “...The deuce? Obey the order or I’ll have ‘ee keelhauled!”
Brummel: “’Keelhauled”? Hmmm. Nope... Wait, does that mean ‘rewarded’?” – from “Hornblower & The Admiral’s Nephew” (1936) CS Forrester.
