Quite so.

Glass half full, glass half empty, or just the wrong sized glass?  It's an interesting angle, Mr Booth. :)

That norvegese adds just the right amount of excitement to those, IMO.

The Holy Grail of US Vintage Shoes (really)...

1940's NOS Edwin Clapp Flying Wing Spade Soled Oxford Wingtips.

100% Handmade elegance.

(I can't believe they are a HUGE size 13d! What a rare size for Vintage US Shoes, where most are too small for the modern foot to wear)

Many Thanks

Those Clapps INFURIATED me with the fact they are waaaaay to big for my feet. Took consolation in these (which, ironically, come from a very good friend who was told they are a 10 1/2D but they ended up being a full 2 sizes smaller)...

1940's NOS Oxford Caps

The Natural Patina on the upper broguing and stitching comes from the color of the brown stitching slowly bleeding (ever so slightly) into the upper leather. 100% natural.

Absolutely incredible.  Let me know if you ever find a 10-10.5!  Sad to say the cap toes don't quite live up to these, but they are special: something about these vintage shoes always impresses me - the welt stitching/fudging on your cap toes has such a skilled, hand-made feel about it.  Love it.

+1; makes them more manly somehow.

Isshi, you must know what I would say. You just keep on delivering.

Perhaps its just the angle but that looks like an EG HAF sole. Great find, Issh.

My Church's shoes from Yoox have arrived, but it was not the "Lancaster", but apparantly a model called "Auckland". They look almost like the "Lancaster", and the color is "Walnut", but they must be out of production now, so they have probably been in the box for some time. Does anybody know this model, and know when it was produced? It is not corrected grain or polished binder, but there seems to be a weakness on the side of one of the shoes where the leather wrinkles, so I'm not sure I will keep them. The tongue is also partly stitched to the side of the shoe, and I'm not sure I like that, but that could just be removed I guess. Does anyone have experience with this? I will probably post pictures tomorrow.
