One of you guys, I forget whom, swapped me a "made by hand" Polo in gray almost exactly like that (oh thanks again, that is such a nice jacket...and apologies for forgetting which person I made the deal with, and for what I traded...it all runs together in my jelly memory). And I bought a J Press one from another of you in person that is clearly more sportcoat-y but in the general herringbone ballpark. Neither have the gilt buttons or anything that loud.
NICE. I found some Nettleton shell wingtips in the wild for a few bucks, my only shell find ever. I loved them so much (once I started researching Nettleton and its pedigree) that I forked over $100 for some gently used vintage gator split toes ones on eBay myself that are more rockabilly than Carl PErkins himself. They go with anything, I wear them both to work in the rotation.
Next up for you (well maybe not but it was for me): vintage J&M Aristocraft lizard skin loafers on Etsy...
That brings up my next question: What is you all's favorite conditioner for these ancient alligator and lizard skin shoes we're finding? I've tried a couple things and am not particularly happy with the results (and you can't really polish them -- or if you do, do you use a special polish? Mine don't take a shine)
