Had to google that but is definitely an apt description. If I could figure out the pronunciation I would definitely be adding it to my vocabulary.
I hope that day does come!
And in addition to letting out the arms, my tailor is replacing the buttons with a nice MOP instead of the plastic matching buttons.
No offense taken!
I really need to get into picking up shoes more.
I always check them now since my nearly-new John Lobb loafers last year and its helped me net some good shit. Came up on a pair of also nearly new Edward Green Nutmeg Suede Tassel Loafers a couple of months ago.
Anyway, Im curious. Do you guys leave shoes behind that have nicks/cuts or scuffs?
If so, will doing some simple cleaning and shining hide that type of stuff and make them wearable or sellable?
Im asking because I routinely leave shit behind because of flaws like that. a week or 2 ago I left behind some current Magli's and some Church's because they had some light to moderate scuffing.
I once found a pair of shoes that I suspected of being high quality but couldn't read the label on the inside.
Once I paid my $10 for them and got them outside, I could just barely make out the words Edward Green.
I am still kicking myself, though, for leaving the shoes I found a couple of weeks ago that I now suspect were Grenson.
Exceptions to every rule though...desirable makers should still be considered.
Example - dont forget to check out the soles.
