Dark Green Consuls on sale SOLD OUT IN MY SIZE...:
I remember you selling a lot of your beloved Aldens... I'm interested to see where you are now with your direction.
But not in mine. Copped a pair. Can't wait...
I dunno... that looks like their bookbinder leather. Kind of shiny/plasticy looking...
Yeah that made me a little nervous. I guess we'll see.
Derby wings of any description - altho not so much on the 888
+1 on the sodding- I cordially hate a chisel, but these
Having a hard time to pick out new velvet slippers. These 2 got my eyes:
1: Purple Label
2: Crockett & Jones
...and now for something extremely rare: NOS Edwin Clapp full wing derby with single leather soles and nylon heels. Mid-brown reddish grain leather with leather lining in same shade. Note the very contoured heelcups and aggressively curving full wing. I do love this pair.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Damage as in dent in your bank account, not in need of repair.
I see, thank you for the clarification
Wow, that's a good looking shoe with a great overall balance of color, texture of the leather, and beefiness of the overall shoe. What year/decade are these from?
1950's to 1960's.
