Got some comments on here earlier about the shoes I'm picking up being too trashed. To continue that theme, here's a recent (e-)thrift find    Sold as unknown maker but I recognized them from the Loake 1880 series.  [[SPOILER]]  Also picked up some shorts for an upcoming FL trip, nwt PRL and some Gant patchwork madras (not pictured) Offwhite, side adjusters, split waist, pleats, tons of MOP-buttons. Not quite sure how to wear, but I love them.  
   Too late. Nothing wrong with them though, they just need some trees and a cleaning. Picked up for personal use but I'd be surprised if I didn't get 10 x what I spent if I decide to flip them.
Can anyone id the maker? Thought Florsheim at first but seems to be wrong. Lining has been replaced and covered most of the markings.      
Haha thanks, that's quite the compliment! 
Thanks! Lovely buttonholes and details but unfortunately no pants. Any idea how old the C&Js could be? Thanks! Natural light works great in the summer. Winter not so much...
Lost all time and motivation to thrift when I started a new job about a year ago and I've only been out occasionally since. However started to flip some old backlog and went out a few times recently - love it.   Some recent stuff:        
 I use a suede brush every once in a while, nothing else needed. (assuming they're waxed?)
 Did anyone jump on this? I was confused by the sizing (supposedly UK, but recommends sizing up one), and was unable to make the purchase in GBP as the currency changed after entering my shipping address.
   Thanks guys! Wasn't sure if Alden did any further coloring on cordovan, hence the question. PS Prepster that is a beautiful shoe! Will post some better pics of mine after brushing out the shell bloom.
Hi guys, first time posting in this thread. I just picked up my first pair of shell Aldens and wanted to ask your opinion on their condition. Both shoes are pretty uneven in color and they both have what looks like dye stains on the lining and sole. Is that normal? Never seen anything like it. They are also way more purple than my other color 8 shoes that are more red/black-ish. Got them for a good price on eBay so I don't mind the stains, just wondering if I managed to...
