My first pair of thrifted shells. Nowhere near NOS, but they are Bostonian saddles. Like eazy said, shell is damn near magical in coming back to life.

Grabbed a shoe shine box full of brushes, PRL shirt, D&G shirt, NWT Robert Graham, another RG and a few other more mundane pieces this past week.

Of particular note:

Guessing 80's from the label. Far from perfect condition, but couldn't pass on the first W&G piece I came across.

Nothing crazy today...

Did find a NWOT Metolius chalk bag (any other climbers out there?). Also two ties that seem nice (Pierre Balmain and Italo Feretti?).

Any suggestions on the age of these? I don't do dress shoes much but found these and really liked the quality. 

Bostonian Wing tips from 60's?

Hucklecat...that is what is referred to as a V-Cleat or you'll hear the nickname Suicide Heal.

thanks jkidd!  I'm just starting to get into vintage dress shoes, it is amazing the difference in "older" models vs. the new stuff.

Not sure I ever properly bragged about these. I'm so in love with the "new shoe" look of the sole, I've refused to wear these anywhere but carpeted surfaces. Because when I wore my C&J boots and Barrie LTD shells for the first time and scuffed the soles to look like normal mortal shoes, I damn near cried. True stories all.

Fred Perry, Uniqlo





Ties... Talbott for U of Virginia, Gitman Bros, Pierre Balmain, Italo Feretti



Crazy vintage 80s Hawaiian shirt



Metolius chalk bag (my favorite, since it was in with the purses. Fortunately, I can spot that logo from four miles away!



And a little something for myself. Gap Selvage.
