I see no reason why one should be offended or upset by this. A well respected member noted that he saw what he thought to be sighs of wear. I just noted that it is understandable to have those questions based on the corner fraying to the tags and tailoring. Seller responded and said the suit is new and unworn.

Anyone on this thread has seen hundreds of similar cases when the item in question actually WAS worn, and the posters here pointed it out (saving any potential buyer/SF member aggravation).
This time seller is being honest, apparently.

Business is business, and no personal affront is intended.

Well said. I am very surprised at all the blow back on my comment, especially considering that I only said that it does not look new to me.

I never said that a suit with pressing creases, hemmed pants, frayed tag, faded tag, altered jacket, altered waist could not possibly be NEW. foo.gif

Sadly, not to wear. Cracking like that will be accelerated when worn on the street. Looks to have been sitting for years now. However, for the price you paid, I'd love to take a reciprocating saw to them and see what the construction was like.

His user name makes me suspicious...

I don't know what can be done about leather that's cracking from dryness. But I saw a review of dandy shoe care at permanent style and the leather treatment photos looked impressive. But I have never used them and have no idea as to price.

That site is amazing! I don't know if they can do anything for your shoes, but if anyone can it sure looks like they are the ones! Some of those shoes look nothing short of miraculous! I know my pops has been hanging on to a pair of alligator Brioni shoes with a few issues, although not as bad as those Lobbs, and I am going to email him about the Dandy Shoe Care place right now! Thanks for sharing that.

It almost looks too good to be true.

Don't have the link but check the review by Simon Crompton at permanent style. Although he did not have leather treated for tears, the repatination of his Weston's looked amazing. I was thinking of having that done to a pair of my EG Windsors.

Great work, by Dandy Shoe Care. So, he's doing this all with dyes, creams and polishes?

Dyes.  And of course, sealed in with polishes.

Other specialist (less artistic than Nurulaeff) are the guys at Shoe Shine Coach



DSC and Hom Nugyen are artisans.  SSC and Talon Rouge are just a notch above cobblers.  And EG/Berluti are just peasants of the patina world.

 

And unfortunately, not enough stripping/decapage info in the shoe care thread.  No bleach, no acetone, no sand paper, no art.
