Never liked flats for dress, they belong to cassuals & sneakers imo.

A brown fullbrogue is "not" a dress shoe, imho

It is more casual traditionally, but I make it work & always get a ton of compliments on the shoes.

Lotusse balmoral plaintoe, resoled with a full Vibram sole. Has served me well for the last 15 or so winters. Lottusse simple plaincap, served me well for close to 20years. Resoled once. Have a Church Consul as a replacement, but stil wear this on occation. Lottusse undestitch loafer around 10years now i think. Just resoled in France, quite pleased with the work.

Moreschi Gold Line, slightly less than 10years. Pollished binder, resoled twice. I realy like this shoe (even if its PB), have been past several brand carying stores & the factory at occations but no more ...

A persuasive argument for well constructed, resole-able shoes as any I've seen. I mean, being 10-20 year old yet they all still look great. Damn.

Thanks for posting.

BRUNATE shoes are relabled Dario Doldoni. But to different an more traditional styling imo. These are quite reminicent of my santoniFAM, these are about 8years where as the santoni are no more than 3. Pondering wether I schoud resole these... I stil enjoy wearing these slightly more than 10years now. Get a lott of compliments to resoled once.

Thanks for the picture. I had never actually seen a pair before. Those things are legends.

Thank you!

Thank you for the topic. You gave me a good laugh with your answer this morning.

I am glad to see, that people start to move away from the sterile world of new out of the box shoes.

No offense to portnoy's and VR's shopping competition, but I am missing something... At least some passion.

Lately I started thrifting "again". I bought around half a dozen shoes which were in different stages and some of them would not meet my standard in their construction.
But, who cares. At an average price of 10 bucks and the same amount to "recraft" them I am happy to say: Variety counts

I'll post some pictures here within two weeks.

PS: Hey Speed, nice collection. Soul to sole
