May Shoe Damage

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just to keep the forum running hot My May '06 additions to the collection.



Front row: Polo (C&J) Henley Saddle Oxford, Lobb Darby Blutcher, RLPL (EG) Camden Monkstrap, and C&J Westminster Oxford
Back row: Tom James (C&J) Barton Oxford, Polo (C&J) Benton Oxford, Polo (C&J) Alton Blutcher, and Lobb Kipling Loafer.

Must resist further purchases and wait for the EG sale at the end of the month.

Wow, very nice collection. I've never seen the Polo Benton in a clear picture before - I like the look and may get a pair. Thanks.

Very nice collection, I especially like the Darby and Camden.

Great collection. I really like the Camden, it looks better in your picture than in Polo.com. I am kicking myself for not snatching them up during the MAY18 sale. I notice the toes darkened a little bit, were they like that when you bought them?

The toes and heel counters were a bit 'antiqued' when I got them - the effect continues to be refined over subsequent polishings.

Ebay - Grapevinehill had a ton of them. Still a few left - 8.5, 9, 9.5 and 2x 10

I like the Lobb loafer. You bought all these in one month? And I thought I was addicted to shoes.

The Lobb Darby is sex on a foot. EDIT: I'm just waiting for everyone to take that literally now...

I have those Tom James Bartons in black. They're great shoes. Another ebay score?

It looks like a very good month!

The Bartons have made the rounds of SF and AAAC... I believe I'm the 3rd to possess them. Seems they didn't quite fit the others.

Hi, my name is Tom and I'm a shoe addict. I find it impossible to resist a bit of broguing or a sleek last. I someday aspire to the heights of the exhalted aportnoy.

A beautiful assortment of fine footwear Tom! You are clearly on the righteous path to enlightenment. I will be sharing my newest additions upon the delivery of a few items meandering their way from Europe touch down in NYC.

Congrats!
