Check the bunny ears in the breast pocket.

Hugh Hefner would be all over that.

Were florsheim's ever decent? Occasionally I see a nice pair of burgundy brogues on eBay.

Yep - back in the 1980s and earlier, Florsheim made good shoes. However, for various reasons - a move towards disposable consumption, cheaper offshore competition and so on - the quality dropped precipitately in the 1990s and has never really recovered. Their current Royal Imperial line sometimes has a couple of reasonable-looking, Goodyear-welted shoes but even some of the Royal Imperial shoes use corrected-grain leather.

I've got a pair of "vintage", made-in-the-USA, Florsheim longwings that are very, very solid and well made. They have a v-cleat heel which is prized by some people but is actually quite suicidal on slippery, tiled or stone floors.

Here are a few shots that I've posted in the past:

^ Spot on. Florsheim made awesome long wings in the 80s. Good quality leather and built to last.

I bought some shell Florsheim Imperials on the 'bay late last year, and even with decades of age and a good five years of wear on them, I'm pretty sure they will outlast me...

tried to get a photo of my herringbone 3/4 trench but lighting in my room at 630am was pretty poor and had to get really close up to see anything ... either way here is a plug for one of Jase's ties

Yes, the top of the pocket is cut at an angle. I wonder if the window panes make that more apparent. A not uncommon thing. I had a look in the SF market place and quickly found a Belvest and Kiton sporting the same rakish breast pocket angle. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Heads up, we've just received back in stock the navy and charcoal Cashmere smart gloves, that allow you to use smartphones and tablets without taking them off, thanks to a conductor in the finger tips. $59.95 AUD, Made in Scotland and available HERE

For anyone that pre-ordered, they will be sent out tomorrow and anyway that is waiting on sizing questions to be answered I will PM/email you tonight with the measurements.





And we also just re-stocked this Cashmere scarf that was sold out as well.

I can't say enough good things about the cashmere gloves. I have a pair in navy and use them all the time. Useful whether you're using a smartphone or (for the folks in Melbourne) topping up your Myki card at the machine.

PSA Melbourne gents. The RL shop on the 4th floor of Myer City has a RLBL suit for $800.. 1 only, size 42R, drop 7, slim cut. It's on a display dummy, not on a rack.
