The Goodwill store at Fillmore and Geary has an interesting collection of Henry Maxwell shoes. There are probably about 10-12 pairs, all between $18-$24. Unfortunately, they are on the small side, probably 7.5 or 8. But they are from the glory days of Dover and New Bond Streets and include the custom shoe trees. I'm sure they would clean up nicely. There are some nice slip-ons and brogues in brown and black. My favorite was a dark brown cap-toe w/ medallion. I hate to see these just disappear into the ether. The lot is probably made for one of those incredible Japanese shoe fetishists, but I just don't have the time or energy.
At their best the Henry Maxwell shoes were second to none. I'd really be lamenting my fate if I hadn't managed to acquire a couple of dozen pairs over the years. I think (like Pooles) representatives from Maxwells must have made regular visits here back in the day.
BTW, there are some interesting Henry Maxwell riding boots on ebay right now, apparently from the 1930s. Might be just the right thing to go with some of the more flamboyant RLPL stuff.
