    So I saw these when I was out yesterday. Anyone ever seen these before? Cole Haan Imperial Grade... V-cleat looks like Florsheim Imperial.

    Hahaha always appreciate a quick bid!

    Hey guys I really wanted to do a give away of this Hartmann Tweed Luggage (1 piece) that I found but I dont know if it against the rules or anything. I was thinking for the SF member who spends the most on my auctions I will send it to them for freeeeeeeee! I have been banned on this site numerous times over the past years and have not sold anything on here since the transition of the new B & S Software. Please let me know if you think its a good idea and I can get pictures of the Luggage posted by tomorrow. Again I would prefer not to get banned and pay another fine, so if this is against any rules then I ll go back to being a quiet observer :violin:

    Similar to this but mine is Brown:

    I'm sitting this one out. You can call it a rocking chair and it's fine by me. :)
    I will say one thing..now I borrowed one of your photos as a reference....

    The BORG logo was very prevalent in the 1970's and will provide an indicator of its age. Best of luck with the sale. It looks like new.

    Waxed cotton needs to be re waxed.

    Available if anyone wants it, includes a packet that contains the brochure, warranty info and care info that came with the jacket. [​IMG]

    Hey guys, does anyone think I can get in trouble for this?

    ebay

    I probably should have just not bought them... or thrown them out once I bought them... but I didn't. I have no idea if they're real. The more I research, the less I believe that they are, although I'm impressed if a replica would go to the effort of using a stitched sole.

    despite what many say on streetwear and denim most don't by common projects becuase the stiched sole

    alot of brands have stiched soles

    they buy it mostly becuase of the cordovan leather sneaker and exclustivity of them (only some celebs wear them) etc

    Say what? Cordovan leather sneakers? I have yet to see that... anyhow, yea I even have a cheap pair of adidas with that and it's pointless anyways because you're not going to recraft the sole.

    Where does it say they are cordovan? My CPs most definitely are not, though the leather is still quite nice for sneakers. Sole is starting to wear funny and it's freaking me out because they aren't that old :fu:

    Awesome find!! :slayer: Those are old. Seems I recall someone on ask andy with a pair and the consensus was they were at least from the 1950's. How were the uppers?
