I think, you can add a lot to this thread by now, Alan

^Perhaps, although I'm minor league around here.

Here are a pair of shell MacNeils after a recraft. I specifically requested that they not refinish the uppers, as it has some nice patin...er, character:




These are some Alden LHS's that I thrifted for $4. I have worn them like crazy. Currently I can't wear them as the heel cover leather is flapping. I'll likely send them off to Alden for a recraft soon:



I'll try to post a few more.

Briiiian. get out of here unless you post some shoes...man.



Alan, just to clarify, I wasn't talking only about patination. We're talking scuffs, scrapes, nicks etc. that come with normal wear & tear. Shoes that look even better with those beauty marks. Patination is a definite plus!

Nice Tom, thanks for sharing.

^I understand. Genuine patination, I would consider it. That's what I had in mind for my original thread, really.

I'd be interested to see some bespoke shoes in this thread. I'd like to see how they wear differently--one would assume 'better'--than lowly RTW.

I'll try to snap some more pics, including the patent pumps.

Yes, it would be good to see well worn bespoke shoes.

OK, as requested, bespoke shoes that have been worn a lot. (Approximately 2-3x per week in the roughly 6 months I've had them.) J.P. Myhre, bespoke wholecut derby, brown grinded waxed calf:
