Cortez '72....no brainer
post #30873 of 51252

Been away awhile.  This thread is seriously on fire!  After the intense feelings of jealousy, it has inspired me to get back in the field daily.  Anyway, here are a couple of my recent brags.  Most are n/a except for the Versace:

 

Probably my most valuable find besides a Tom Ford a found a few years back.  Sold same day it was listed.

 

Rocky Mountain Featherbed with what looked like fox fur.

Cannot ever go wrong with some cortez. 80s - 90s models are where it's at though. So, if ever any of you see a model in that date range and think damn, what grown man's foot is that small, think of me :embar:

Looks wise, Cortez are a great looking shoe. Around here they tend to have a stigma as a gangbanger shoe, so that certainly doesn't help things. I always liked them regardless.

 

I knew I had a pic saved of these. Sold these probably 5+ years now. My favorite Cortez I ever found. Blue suede from 1990.

Odd request, but does anyone happen to know the artist who did this piece? No markings, but it came from a gallery in Chicago.

^^^ why do you ask? 

 

there are ways and ways and ways to research this sort of thing, but you gotta be as specific as you can and basically cross your fingers that the artist rates any internet presence at all (which isn't always the case). try to figure out what the medium is, what era, subject, etc etc. if it's from a frame shop or gallery or something in chicago i guess that helps but really you just gotta know art inside and out or flat-out know how to research...

 

for instance:

As much info as you can give would help. Pic of gallery sticker, any signature/monogram/initials etc

Thrifting has been slow lately here in Blighty, but I did pick up a pair of J M Weston loafers today in excellent condition. 10 D and available.



Oh, and an Anerican Apparel collared jersey for the summer.

Big shoutout to @freehand for an excellent deal on those Cucinelli long wings he posted a little while ago. Once I've given them a condition and polish I'll post them up. The man also sent me some ties too just because he's a stand up guy. Thanks again smile.gif

While we're on the topic of art value, here's a great example from a book I've been reading.

...I'd unframe and see if anything is hiding under the matting...sig, watermarks on the paper, etc.

Hey when we do the cheapies the year can we do something like the Christmas deal where the people who enter hook the winner up with a prize and do a $5 charity donation? Just a thought
