This is good if you like antique UK fashion http://www.old-town.co.uk/galleries.htm
Just remembering my grandfather - James Henry Boots 18th Division First AIF. Gallipoli Veteran wounded and repatriated from Lone Pine.
Yes it's Saturday Sydney time, so this morning I had a chat with Nick Pascuzzo the local Manly cobbler who is a trained shoemaker despite being only 37!I set the task that I want him to do.A complete reboot - but the real task is to save the patina etched into the uppers. I want a shoe that keeps that upper patina but rehabbed from a shoe perspective inside and below.Nick is going to strip the bottoms off, hand re-welt and patch the odd hidden spot from inside and resole...
Just one early snap of a renovation project I am going to post on SF but which reinforces DWFII's comment on real antiquing vs fake.My mission (should I accept it) is to save the antiquing... whilst rehabbing the shoes.These are a 50 year old pair of C&Js 10.5 E UK I picked up this week.They is the Real McCoy. A product of 50 years of applied love. Incidentally they were Topyied too!

A stunning and unique Fosters thing. The cloudiness of the sun damaged look is what I really like.
It's all Ameruca's fault.
