    Here are the shoes I was asking about a few days ago, purchases on eBay for what they would have cost in 1955, sadly 1 size too small

    Looking good. Yeah, bloom comes off pretty easy. Just takes a minute to get it off.
    Don, looking great in your Snuff Suede LHSes. I really love my pair. Enjoy yours!
    Chippy, I am very sorry to hear about your wife. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hope that you are doing okay, she will need your love and support. Let us know if you need anything. Nice LHSes bud.
    Fun project and they came out nicely!
    Your boots are looking good. Yeah, VSC is good and Alden Boot Cream (ABC) is typically highly recommended.
    They are in good hands. ;-)
    That's a nice pair of LHSes. Congrats on your acquisition, sorry they don't fit. -Mike

    First wanted to correct the brand name cuz I got it slightly wrong, ITS rubber company makes the ITShide commando soles. There was a 2009 SF thread that talked about this and some knowledgeable guys said that these were harder than the dainite version (despite my experience that it seemed softer and wore more quickly - maybe the Tricker's blue is some fashionable version?). BNelson was on that thread so maybe they can get ITShide? Not sure.

    PSA, I have a pair of Epaulet "To Tie Guy" snuff suede wingtip boots (size 8.5D, Plaza last) that I am looking to pass on. Will split my deposit if someone wants to take them at a discount (see signature), if no takers by this week then i'll forfeit my deposit
