Brand new 'seconds' quality Whitehouse Cox 'Bill fold wallet with coin purse' in Havana dark brown. Retails for £163.33 on the Whitehouse Cox site. Will age and develop a beautiful patina with use, and is very solidly made.
I have two pairs of Barker Blacks which don't fit. They are both brand new in the box with bags. For those who've not handled a pair, the leather is of very good quality and the last shapes are great. At this price they are a steal - retail is in the £500 region. Haraboro captoe lace-ups in black calf. UK8 / US9. SOLD Wolfe loafers in black with 'bones' horsebit detail to the front. UK7.5 / US8.5 Asking £125, shipped from the UK at cost.

Mostly lurk here, mostly lurked today. Thanks to all though - good to see some stuff in person. Getting on a plane to London now, otherwise I'd have stayed longer and sampled some of that drink and cake...
+1, welt is cut closer than I have seen before. Great making.
Agreed - that looks stunning, find a reweaver (if necessary pay to ship it to someone highly reccommended) and pay what it costs to get the job done properly.
Well what are the chances - am in town that week. Will attend Friday if my schedule allows
I'm curious - for those who have shoes (or indeed other leather goods) made from this, what do you use to condition / polish / care for it?
I purchased this last year, but it's very similar to a Zegna jacket I have so it's not seen much use. Tobacco brown, four flapped / buttoned patch pockets, fairly heavyweight cotton with the usual unstructured and unlined style. 3 roll 2 buttoning. Plenty of pick stitching. Garment washed and gently distressed along the seams - note the size tag looks tattered but this is due to the garment washing process. Tagged as a Medium. I'd suggest this is about right for a 38 /...
I have too many cufflinks, so I'm hoping we can find a good home for a few pairs. I've picked these up from antique dealers over the years: 1. 9ct gold-mounted dog enamel portraits, with plain gold backs attached via a chain. Weight 6.53g. Looking for £100. SOLD 2. Carved amethyst faux-buttons, set in hallmarked gold (hallmarks indistinct); yellow gold to the chains and mounts, with white gold 'button holes' set with small mine-cut diamonds to each hole. Identical on...
