I'm thinking Cordwainer by Wright. Possible says arch preserver under that too.

Holy crap Wes, what a shoe haul.

 

 

Awww Yisssss. After not finding anything for ages I found some good stuff today. A separate post to follow once I get some photos done. For now can I get some verification help so I can return if need be? I was under the impression that this was the correct Balmain label, yes? (sorry for sideways pic, but you get the idea)

 

It seems a bit fishy to me. It's on a sport coat that's made in the USA. I thought that the vast majority was made in France/Italy and things like the jeans were made in Japan. If I recall correctly it was the diffusion line, Pierre Balmain, jackets that were made in USA. So is this just a label switch job or does this seem legit? FWIW it doesn't really seem all that well made. It feels like it's fused, although I can never really tell for sure. I haven't handled any Balmain before, but with the price I assume it would be fully canvassed no?

Are you on IG?  I like your clothing layouts; reminds me of my homies Steadbrook here in Denver.  Also, of course, nice finds on the BoO and RRL.

I don't know what IG stands for so I'm guessing no?

Ran across this in the local thrift. No fancy construction or anything, but I was a bit curious about the Ford thing. Any collectability/flipability?

Good luck on the MCAT. I took mine a few weeks ago and am still waiting on my scores. Stay calm. It's really easy to get freaked out during the test.

Also, that Canali Kei is awesome.

Off the top of my head.

Finally got a chance to take a look at this.

 

Looks like the "Dickson" was available from 1964-1977

Prior to 1964 the same shoe was available under the model name "Dick"

You might see a Rutgers Union stamp inside somewhere too.

Ha, I found you.  You have exactly 0 posts, 0 followers, 0 followings.  But you managed to post a profile photo.  Anyway, I think your method of documentation would go over well there. 

 

A quick e-thrift. LVC 501, 501XX, and uber rare N&F Low Tension Weave Selvage blahblah (N/A)

Thanks! I started to look through a couple of them last night but then my power went out. Just came back on this morning.
