    PSA just bought a pair of Ravello tassels from Pelle Line. They have at least one other pair in size 11E.

    Beautiful #8 loafers Uncle. You must kill them when they see those argyles.

    Ok, this is my last reclamation project for a while. A picked up what I believe to be a pair of calfskin NST's off of ebay for a shipped price of less than $100. They seemed to have good bones from the pictures, but looked like they needed a little love. A little Saphir renovater, neutral shoe cream, and considerable elbow power has produced these .......

    I cleaned up the edging and added the shoe/heel protectors. Look at how thick the soles are. These shoes were hardly used, just not well cared for. I am quite pleased with the outcome. They will also be added to my regular rotation. I thought I was through with non-shell for a while but I'm glad I didn't pass these up.
