Picked up these Hanover loafers today. Love me some shell. Black, 11.5D. Available (but prolly hitting eBay soon):
Also grabbed a couple nice brandy snifters. Can never have enough of those.
I cant make the insole numbers out on the Florsheim Royal Imperial tassel loafers, but do the rolls in the leather and the lack of fine creases say shell to the experts here?Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I vote shells.
Ahh, I glossed over the large size. The button stance is really that low, even though it's dated 2002?? Hmm. It's your call, but I think I'd probably still grab at least the suit. Assuming that's a European size 60 (50 US...if not, then clearly this belonged to Andre the Giant, not any of the mere mortals in your picture), it may take awhile to move, but it's too good to pass up.
Also, the blue orphan jacket sounds like it was a suit at some point in the store and the pants just got separated, since it was priced at $45 while the birdseye was only $6. If you decide to get the Poole tux, I'd probably check over the store for the pants to complete the blue suit.
Yeah, all 3 jackets look like they were made in the 80s until I looked at the make tag. I was a bit surprised to see they were recently made. I will bring my tape measure next time I'm there. Hmmmm, maybe the birdseye was a SC that's why they listed as $6? Nahhhh, they just fucked up! lol I think if they are there next time, I'll at least pick up one...
Those are beautiful!
