    Ive been reading the forum for a while now and have been inspired by all the information. Today I picked up a pair of Bruno Magli loafers, Ocean, at goodwill for $2. Im excited to start cleaning them up and hopefully making them wearable.
    My question is if anyone can point me in the direction of any information about the shoe? I am just curious to know a little about it, possibly when it was made and quality of the leather. They are dark brown leather possibly cordovan? If they are cordovan they would be the first pair I've ever held and wouldn't know the difference.
    Thank you in advance for any information you have.

    I'm not really aware of Bruno Magli doing significant work with shell cordovan.

    I'm not sure if you've already seen it, but this thread should be pretty inspring.

    The reason I figured I would pick up some shoes and see what I can do with them.
