    I bought these recently to add to the vintage collection:
    French ATLAS Miami Spectators NOS 1920s/30s.

    Decided I liked these Moreschi spectators too...

    Rare as hen's teeth, I imagine.... Trickers 'George' Marron Calf / Milkshake suede on a country last ( 4497S)

    Uber retro, most certainly.... and I can hear the cries of clunky and inelegant from certain quarters [​IMG]

    Ooo totally forgot about this thread - here's two I had custom made a while ago. Nothing extravagant, but I guess not the run of the mill specs

    Burgundy or dark brown shoes are awesome.[​IMG]

    Here's my two pair - nothing too special since I couldn't rationalize a big layout for a one-season shoe

    I love this style. Peal by Brooks Brothers carries something similar. If only I went to more garden parties!

    That might be the most ridiculous medallion I've seen.

    I like those specs! I went to the BB site and couldn't find them - where's your source?

    *EDIT* Forget it - found the listing.

    I thought the same, then I realized his shoes are matching her dress.

    Of course his shoes match her dress rather than matching his suit, shirt and tie. The boy's pussywhipped. He's engaged, isn't he? He had a choice to make: either spend big coinage on those shoes or cut off his balls in exchange for those shoes. Well, we all know how that turned out, right?

    Pussywhipped? I haven't met a man who's happily married who isn't... Here's some advice: if you find a woman who'll marry you, make sure to use a rusty old blade to cut off your balls. Women seem to like that as a last display of manliness. Coinage. [​IMG]
