I have the cambridge in shell as well (I believe it was only ever made in shell). Fantastic shoe.

I picked these up on ebay on a whim and used them as a restoration project. They were in really rough shape when I got them and I did about as much as possible to get these looking nice. Can anyone tell me anything about these in particular whether they might be bespoke. The seller advertised them as such and they have that swoopy bespoke shape but otherwise I don't see any tell tale characteristics of bespoke.

I initially bought these ties for myself but I've been trying to clear out some of my inventory these days and thought there might be some here who would like these. They are NWT Holliday and Brown ties which most of you know are excellent quality and tie a beautiful knot. I'd like to get $55 shipped CONUS for these. The first is baby blue with a yellow and white flower pattern. I didn't realize until I got home but I believe this is a 7-fold? tie (Please correct...
I guess they are real I just can't believe the number of pieces they have. The leather in the sofa seemed too rough and old not to have ANY cracks which made me wonder about its authenticity. It sure would be a fun job to be one of Ralph's "people".
