    Calf/canvas wingtip spectators by Edward Green for COLE HAAN - Size 10.5D. Starting bid $125. Soles look like shoes were worn one time.

    Edward Green for Cole Haan - when was this?


    Now only $190 (and hopefully soon mine!)

    Pfft ... I am out - not bidding against YOU! Lost of good Ghurka stuff for sale to match the shoes, however ...

    Great shoes - EG Malvern spectator on the 202 last, by the look of it. They are my size on the 202 last, too. Sigh.....

    The seller has some other nice shoes, including a pair of virtually unworn chelsea boots by JM Weston:

    The A&F leather animals, which I used as a footstool, were prominently displayed in the old A&F store on Madison and 45th in the '60s. Many of these preppy fads have vanished or on their last legs (Antartex sheepskin coats, monograms on your no-pocket Brooks button-downs, 4" wide Chipp regimental ties, the clock at the Biltmore, tan o-ring harness belts). The Anglophile snobberies associated with many of these items have also mercifully expired. Without these historical references, the leather animal is ridiculous. Leave it to RJMan, with a nose for archaeology, to post this item. I wonder if the Italians are also involved in this sentimental time travel (e.g. the navy regimental striped ties at the E G Cappelli shop would not look out of place 50 years ago).

    It appears that our own AnGeLiCbOrIs hit a freaking AE shellgasm. All new, various sizes, various colors ... Did you rob the AE truck or something?!?!

    AE MacNeil $325
    AE Leeds $325
    AE Bradley $325
    AE Strand $349 (my favorite, and he has my size [​IMG])

    I had thought about bidding, but I think I am going on a moratorium for new purchases... at least until I thin out my current possessions and free up some space.

    As another solid 10.5D I too refrained from tossing my hat in the ring. Despite the obvious attractiveness of the pair in question, the lighter spectators of that type simply remain just a bit too special for me.

    I recently got junk mail from Scully & Scully in NYC and saw the leather animals in their catalog. Someone also mentioned the animals are still made by a co called Omersa.
