The antiquing looks superb.
beautiful loafers! Love the mild spade sole.
Interesting and sad aspect of that shot of the lasts is that the great Polish leader and hero - General Sikorski - had already demised in a suspicious plane crash in Gibraltar in 1943. That last really should be remitted to Poland as a national treasure.
What shoes are you wearing their mate? The look like 40s vintage spades soles. Whole look is sharp.
What I can't understand is the discrepancy between pricing in the Salvos stores. The prices in petit bourgeois Gladesville are higher than the Norvern Beaches so they end up with so much unsold stuff 6 months later the $100 Hugo Boss suit is $10. Can't work it out.
A lot in Sydney like it when you take it in there and they see it's clean and ready to go on the rack. Biggest problem is splitting up the suits so it ends up as rags. Huge mistake brought on by paying nothing for it. Some management idea that better to get a quick sale for some bottom pair of suit trousers than keep the items intact. At the same time the number of people patronising op shops seems bigger than ever. Users and flippers.

'Nuff said and thanks for that cogent analysis.
