Before cleaning and rehabbing.



A famous 1960s comic used to advertise them by saying:

"You know they're hurtin' when you wearin' Raoul Merton.

In fact, they are so comfortable I had them on all day. Minus the suicide hobnail heels though.

This... but the Italian/EUR stuff is just miles ahead of even the top British stuff for elegance and wow factor when seen en masse like this. Thanks for going to so much trouble.

I have seen this on ebay, said it was ferragamo special edition, this series supposed to be made by paola scafora, I actually own a pair(split toe derby norvegese), best leather(and veg-tanned) I have seen.

Hi Jesper, Very nice and wise collection ( A.M, L.M, J.M and R.B :slayer:).

 

What could you say about Yanko´s quality.  I just bought my first (and lowest quality) pair?.

 

Thanks.

post #20123 of 20858

Jesper, Superb!

Thanks guys!

 

Yanko is great for the price (especially here in Sweden where Skolyx sells them for €280/$310 (and if you're outside EU you can deduct the 25% Swedish VAT as well, making it a real bargain). Close to Carmina in quality as I see it, maybe not quite there, but yeah, great for the price.

Awesome as always Jesper! Are you making it a point to stick around 25?

I feel like that's a good number

Thanks! Haven't really planned it that way, but it seems like I'm pending between 20-30 pairs, and agree that it's a good number in many ways. Maybe will go abut higher with the years as all pairs will fit good and be shoes I like and wear regularly, we'll see.

Here is my contribution to SF.  First time I take pics for myself of all of my shoes together.  To lazy to name all the shoe models posted but they are well known. I own 4 spanish brands; Carmina, Lottusse (wing tip brown bootie), Hierro y Albero (suede boots) and Yanko (the plain black oxford...latest adquisition  :)).

Here's a little something we don't see too often: camel skin uppers. These are vintage NOS Saxone plaintoe derbies with single leather soles, linen lining, and what appears to be fiber insoles. The sole sticker dates the pair to 1968. I've no idea how the shoes have kept up over the years, but the camel skin is now supple and nicely shiny after treatment, and hardly shows creases after use. No cracks either. I really like the natural grain of this hide and my sources tell me that camel is several times stronger than calf as it has more collagen fibers per square inch. Well, if you care for such nerdy details at least. We need more camels in shoemaking.

Those are nice. I read the sole sticker as 89/11, rather than 11/68 - it is a price sticker I think (89 shillings and 11 pennies; an abbreviation for £4 9s 11d - £4.49). That still dates them to 1971 or earlier.
