    HA! I've done that before. Thanks about the Shoes.

    They are Florsheim Custom Mades circa approx 1930. I'm a fan of vintage trees & went through maybe 20 pairs of vintage trees to find a pair that fit so well.

    By the way, I've been told that the marking on the sole may well be the original price. $19.99. To put that in perspective, in the 1936 Weyenberg catalog (who made very nice shoes then), the shoes ranged from $2.25 for the "Economy Model" to $4.50 for the "Deluxe Captoe Oxford in Kangaroo".

    Scaforas usually run at USD1600 or more. These were on sale at Yoox for USD600 or so from memory as were a few pairs hereabouts. Some store in Switzerland had some pairs. My understanding is that all Scafora shoes even RTW are hand stitched.

    "And before you ask, the formula is: good fit + lasted trees & proper care = no creases."

    don't even really need to be lasted, just well-fitting.
