With sorrow I'm passing on this great find as one sleeve is shorter than the other.

Horn buttons with working buttonholes -- when changed, the jacket becomes a blue blazer. All hand made in Chicago. Like new: no tears, fraying, smell, spots or...

Bengal, you lucky shoe nerd! The last looks extended. Did you request it or is it the house style? How are the leathers?
That bison hide is the gnarliest I've seen, just right for a nice pair of roaming boots, chukkas would show off the texture best. If it moves and has a hide, Antonio can likely turn it into shuus.

Oh, please, jump suits are, like, totally sooo last season. I mean, like, that Winston Church-something dude wore them, like, totally for many seasons back in London or Goad knows where. I'm totally waiting for chastity belts to hit the runways and groins come next fashion week and stuff.
Meister, I'm sure G. Snr. meant that their shoes will last 30 years of wear. If your 80+ shuus have been sitting in a closet for most of their existence, a comparison may not be drawn. I have two pairs of Edwin Clapps from the '50s or '60s and both are in excellent shape, but neither has been worn much. What I can compare, however, is the upper leathers used on olden pairs and the ones I see on mid-tier GW factory shoes. The old leathers, on average, are superb, but I...
