    Dayummmmn @SpooPoker, I think you're looking at at least another Ferrari's worth of profit on that haul!

    I don't even smoke, and I'm going to need a smoke after looking at that pile .

    Sweet that's the best haul that will ever be. Right place right time and a ballsy gamble. Hope the dice work out that looks like a shit ton of work. I mean the pressing on all of it will take a weeks. How the hell you going to drive that truck with all that shit on the drivers side? But in this case you could always shove it completely full and tow the truck. Lol

    Did you see anything that WASN'T quality? :D

    Grats man, when you get it sorted out, i'd like to get on the long list of interested parties for maybe 2 or 3 suits.

    I'll see if I can make something happen for you. I still owe our last contest winners theirs...and I need to drop eazy one in the mail.



    Never! Really cool find, they're an old maker. I saw their store a couple of times, but never the inside. They made boots/shoes for a lot of Austrian royalty. How did you come across those?


    Dibs on Kirkland and Stafford! I'll fight the forum for that stuff.

    Insane though, congratulations.

    Went to the flea market this morning and spotted these from a distance. Walked over to them and the guy starts talking to me. When I go to flea markets, I look like a homeless guy, not one interested in spending money. Anyway, the guy starts talking to me and I found out he used to work for Ludwig Reiter, so he obviously knew the retail value. Still worth the purchase, but he wasn't interested in budging. All Ludwig Reiters and 3/4 had trees.

    I bought these Allen Edmonds in Cordovan at my local thrift store yesterday for $5. They even fit me!

    Want to trade? Can't swear the roll will be as good as yours, but I've been working on learning to handroll edges, and I can promise to pick a cool fabric to start from.

    That pair you are displaying is not Shell Cordovan, maybe cordovan color.
