Made nice footwear in the 60s. Maybe before then? We would ride up to Chicago in the late 60s and buy their lizard shoes from Chernin's for $30. That was a lot of money for 18 and 19 year old young men. Doing that time, most high end shoes (Bally, J&M, Nettleton etc.) cost $30 to $35. Nettleton alligator shoes were only $75.

Back in the day there were many a time that I found myself at the order counter at Jim's in the wee hours trying to decide between a polish and a pork chop sandwich (smothered in grilled onions), before finally getting both. shog[1].gif

Jeez, what a circus that joint was at 4am.
