    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    Someone just noted that the creases on the shoe in the right pic make them look more calf than shell, and I sure think he’s right... So I guess 2 questions now: 1) thoughts on the maker? 2) am I right that these look more calf than cordovan (if so, I can still nix the purchase!)

    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    I’m interested in a related but tangential question (and I’ve been reading here for a couple years, so no problem w lack of familiarity... though maybe I missed a key exchange)- What is the [market price / thrift price] multiple you look to find in order to justify a kop? Not the 10% rule— to...

    The Official Thrift / Discount Store Bragging Thread Part III (Sept. 2018--)

    Wait a second- I’ve been reading this thread for a couple years and contributing very sporadically.
