If anyone ever finds an old Dallas Mavericks one I will take it! L or XL. Die hard fan even when they arent that good!

I'm always highly suspicious of the obvious logo stuff, the horse bits on those would be the most frequently faked print.

I've never seen dates on shoes, would love to see you drop the knowledge on that shoe code.  I always come across stuff and take a guess on the date, but it's purely a hunch unless you can really do the research.  Militaria is a little easier because of contract numbers and active collectors.

If that was ERDL, it's be worth a mint. That looks to me like RDF transitional (transition between ERDL and Woodland), used between 1978/79 and 1981. Still pretty rare, as most M65's are woodland or OD green. It's a great find!

Picked up 6 of them along with 5 of the standalone pant hangers, all for $6, so I'm not complaining at all. Just curious.

I kind of wondered that given some of the stuff that I was coming across on the racks. (never hit that location before). I was in rush and didn't have time to check everything out so may head back again sometime. Cheers,

These actually had the full date printed in them (Nov. 22, 1944). I wish there were shoe codes that revealed dates of regular vintage shoes, but I've never heard of any except for the florsheim one that only gives the last digit of the year, which isn't that helpful. To my knowledge the only way to really get a feel for dating shoes is just looking at as many old advertisements and handling as many pairs as possible. It is of course impossible to get an exact date, but at this point I'm usually fairly confident on general era.

Same day I left the Canalis I picked up a pair of lacoste selvedge for myself. It's hit or miss like anywhere else but in the last couple years I've been going there there's usually Zegna and Canali, I've gotten Alden Shell, Versace leather , 2 kitons, Brioni etc. Definitely the best store in town for consistency

Yesterday I thrifted a pair of Ede & Ravenscroft black patent evening dress shoes.
What I've been able to find out, both Edward Green and Cheaney have made patent shoes for Ede & Ravenscroft.

These are marked "Savoy" inside the tongue, and have the number 1689, which I'm guessing is the last.
They look very similar to the EG Carnegie shoe.

Does anyone know this Savoy shoe and if it was made by Edward Green?

^ Someone can correct me, but those are Edward Green, I believe. Nice looking!

Haven't made it OUT much, but damn my e-thrifts are on point. Checking this one off the list. $49? I'm too hyped right now. Couldn't sleep last night.
