I recently purchased these from the Crockett & Jones factory shop, but I've decided I'm unlikely to wear them and would rather put the money towards a new digital camera. They are a lovely shoe in a black pebblegrain calf with a raised split-toe welt, and a durable Dainite rubber sole that is perfect for the winter months or those who prefer to walk. For that reason, I'm offering them on to SF members for what I paid, otherwise I'll return them on my next visit. My...
A little surprise bump - fabric No. 2 wasn't quite what the buyer was expecting so it's back up for sale. It will ship from the buyer's address in the US. With thanks to the buyer, below are some high-resolution images. For completeness, the buyer's comments were "Quite a luxurious hand as I expected but unexpected was the color.

Photos to follow, but I picked up a lovely 1969 Dege bespoke suit in a vintage store today - 13/4oz grey pinstripe, single breasted with fishtail back trousers. More impressive is the fact it fits! (I'm 6ft 3in, 38in chest)
PM sent on No. 40
SOLD - THANKS FOR THE INTEREST I have three leather weekend bags, and as one of them was purchased for me by my wife I have little to no chance of ever using this in anger. Fantastic '72 hour' / long weekend Da Vinci bag by the Canadian label WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie in 'Burnt Henna' leather. 53cm x 33cm x 21cm. Handmade in Italy from top-quality leather. Has both carry-handles and a shoulder-strap. Used on one trip, hence in excellent condition. Sorry for...
