Always liked Ravello but would prefer it done with antique edge trim.

I did not realize they would be that ancient, makes the state of preservation all the more remarkable. Seller also had an all leather heel pair of equally pristine shell cordovan Alden LHS for BB, someone got a bargain.

Thank you. cheers.gif

those are some FINE loafers. almost a shame to wear them at this point. they have survived so long in pristine condition (obviously in the box the whole time).

do any of you vintage shoe guys have recommendations for how to treat them before wearing?

NEVER a shame to wear. It's the right thing to do... provided they have truly "survived" the decades in storage.

Best to condition for AT LEAST a month before the maiden voyage. As long as the dryness is limited to the surface only, they will be fine.

Nice collection! I wonder why Stenchever went out of business with a great name like that? tinfoil.gif

HA! Many thanks for the compliment. Marketing was obviously NOT a part of company naming policy in the 1940's!

Personal favourite is the 1930s Wright spade B&W spectator. Beautiful shape!

Closely followed by the 7 laced taupe and cordovan spectator.
