You robbed her blind. You should be ashamed of yourself.

I don't think they are Florsheims, though.

Supposedly vintage Thom Mcan, a brand from which I would absolutely not expect shell. Vintage shoes intrigue me, so for $10 I will indulge myself. We shall see if these are in line with the quality of the '60's or if they are the K-Mart/Wal-Mart versions with which the brand is now associated.

I find it interesting that this last pair is decribed in the tag line as being "very nice shoes like Berluti," as though Lobb shoes would benefit from being compared with Berluti. It shows the power of advertising, I guess, along with the pull of "fashion" or what's perceived as "fashionable," rather than of extremely high quality.

Double-check on size on all of these as the sizes I've noted above are not definitive, but rather my best guess given what's been listed.

I have a pair of the 'City'. They're nice enough, if a bit uninspiring, but then I guess, they are just meant to be Oxfords

I think these are worth following-up on. These days, the Harvard is available only in shell cordovan; thus, these could be black shell. The soles are closed-channel, as on the Handgrades. I haven't seen this combination with C&J--shell cordovan and Handgrade-style soles--and it's possible they're old Handgrades (and not shell). But they're probably authentic C&J and could be worth a look and request for further information. They're new, and the misspelling of "Crockett" might keep them under the radar.
