    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    The leather has been sanded down, removing the topical grain of the leather, giving it the surface feel of a suede or nubuck like leather. So these shoes are likely an incomplete project by their previous owner. An additional point of evidence that these shoes have been modified is the color of...

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

    I have seen this on shoes that I have owned several times. Yes, there is sometimes a difference between the heelpad script and the outsole script on RLPL shoes. These are legit RLPL shoes, but I don't know the model name.

    Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions

    I would recommend adding the word "shoes" to your title. If you search for Alexander mcqueen shoes within the men's dress shoe category, your listing is not returned as a result. I would also fill out every recommended item specific as best you can. That will help drive more impressions to your...

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

    These shoes have been previously restored (resoled) and the heels look very rough. On shell cordovan it's been to inspect the shoes very closely for rips or tears. On these shoes, at the instep notch is the most common area that tears.

    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    Generally, the same features that make high grade vintage shoes stand out compared to good modern shoes. Upper and sole finishing, the quality of clicking and closing, the welting. More abstractly, the balance of the shoes, the lasting and shape of the last. It takes a high degree of skill...

    Vintage Dress shoe appreciation, tips, maintenance and advice

    The J&M are near bespoke quality ready to wear shoes that sought to emulate details of some of the best American dress shoes ever made. Edward Green makes great shoes today, but there are many shoemakers that have come and gone that have made better shoes than current EG ready to wear.
