Went to a place I don't like to go to, cause I think their prices are a little high, guess I will keep checking back. Need to find that beaver collar, did not see it.

Dudes - need some opinions.

I thrifted some fairly well-used Lattanzi shoes the other week. They fit and overall are a nice shoe.

I reach out to Lattanzi about a complete re-crafting and was quoted $450. This includes new soles, new "interior", slight size adjustment (if requested), etc. Basically they will "look like new" according to them.

Worth it? Seems like a shit ton of money for a recraft, but third parties will likely not do as thorough and complete job as the original manufacturer... right?

you'll never get that investment back if you sell, so if you love them enough to pay "retail", do it.

I finally got to wear the suede AE longwings I bought a few months ago. Every time I've wanted to wear them, the weather's been bad.

Break on the trousers isn't as sloppy as it looks. They fit well, but not perfectly, since they only have button side adjusters. I'll add brace buttons now that I've decided to keep them.

Unknown camel SC. Well made. Hand button holes.
PRL shirt.
PRL Made in Italy tie.
KW linen square
Marshall Fields flannel trousers.
AE McGregor suede longwings.

All thrift but the AEs, which were clearance from Burlington ($80), and square (eBay). Considering I found $100 bill in the pocket of the SC, total cost of this fit is probably under $10.

That car is amazing.

My grandfather had a 50s era Caddy that I will forever associate with him.

Yeah, that's a princely sum.
My guy is charging me just $80 for a complete redo, by hand, of the welting on a pair of bespoke Fosters. This includes new heels, full soles, on both shoes, leather conditioning and shine, etc. He will likely give it some interior conditioning too. He does good work.

I am thinking of maybe sending them to B. Nelson, but not sure about the work they do. I do believe it's no more than 1/3 the cost of what Lattanzi quoted.
