    It is the same script as Hanover, but it would have been much farther back and stamped longways on the sole, rather than across. I have seen some others with the same scripting, struggling to recall who though.

    That second oxxford :drool:

    What are good brands for narrow shouldered people by the way? As much as I thrift, I might as well be on the lookout for a nice suit.

    Mr. Wes, size now!

    I have handled quite a bit Hanovers. These are not. There is still possibility of Church's since Barrie used them, they are marked custom grade, and quality is similar. However the script is like Alden's and it has four more nails than Church's.

    just wondering: you guys with those sweet cigarette cases, what are the measurements? could those be the coolest possible iPhone cases ever?

    B-b-b-but Incotex is made in Romania!

    But yeah, that sounds sketchy. And being the good German I am, I don't trust anyone east of Poland.

    I've got several thrift finds on my eBay and on myself at the moment.

    Thank you for selling those to me for my personal use. I appreciate it.

    I wore (or at least attempted to wear) them for the first time out to dinner. Unfortunately, they didn't fit me as I have short but wide feet. It was a struggle to put them on and take them off. I only wore them for no more than 2 hours and my big toe area was inflamed. So I'm trying to sell them on Ebay. But, if you want them back, I'll be happy to ship them to you at no cost to you.

    Again, I really appreciate the fact you proxyed them to me. [​IMG]

    No reason for the big text. I have too many shoes atm, so do what you have to do. I was going to be upset if you were solely trying to flip since you previously had not even indicated to me that you received them. And just for future reference, unless you're selling to your neighbour, it's pretty much impossible to ship shoes for $5.

    Size on that baller Oxxford plaid? I've wanted one ever since I found that crazy red/sky blue one. IMO the one I found kicks the shit out of that one, but that one is still awesome, and I would love it to be a 42/41S :)

    Has anyone attempted the oxy method on a silk shirt? I'm planning to do so as a last effort.
