FS Bostonian Cigar Shell Cordovan Loafers 9.5 D, Schlesinger Triple Briefcase

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Selling some stuff to scare up some cash. First up is a relatively rare Schlesinger triple gusset briefcase. It's in burgundy leather. It has two end compartments zipped at the top with a center allaround zipper compartment which allows it to open completely flat. The center compartment also features the pen holders and pockets as shown. I have no idea what the middle pocket is for originally but its great for a Blackberry or an iphone or other cell phone. It's used but in good condition. I haven't used it, I bought it vintage like this. It has the Schlesinger leather tags on both of the zippers. The zippers appear to be brass and are branded C&C. Need to sell this quick, $70 google checkout shipped conus, international you can PM me, perhaps we can work something out. NOW $50.00 Next up is a very rare pair of nearly deadstock Bostonian Crown Windsor loafers in stunning Cigar or brown shell cordovan. Bostonian used to make some crazy shoes, I am sure this is one of their last ones from that era. This is a classic design still used by everyone from Crockett and Jones to Alden. It is full goodyear welted and looks to have been worn once for a few minutes. Full dovetail heel. They are size 9.5D/B US and I believe they run true, 9.5D is my size. Sometimes you see off-brands use more seams in their shell shoes (made of smaller pieces of hide), but this does not have any of those short-cut seams. The construction pattern is the same as the Aldens. Even the tassle and lace is shell, as it should be. $225 google checkout With flash (they are not this shiny, they look like normal whiskey Horween shell):

Bostonian did indeed make some great shoes - I have some vintage pebblegrain longwings that are very sturdy. Those loafers are beautiful - GL with the sale!

FWIW, those are more like a #4 than whiskey, a lot of red. Beautiful color though.

Crap! You know what, I meant Cigar, not Whiskey. These are not in any way like whiskey. They are close to my Darltons but more reddish. And you might be right, I have never seen #4 or #6, it could be one of those colors exactly. here's the cigar pic from shoemart for comparison
