Pre 1973 93605s off of Etsy for $54 shipped. They are in transit. The heel counter is a bit of a mess and they look dry. I figure it’s with the risk for the price.

Wow, such great finds. I got the thrifts every week and there is nothing but turds.It is black cap toe clean-up day; two pairs of H.H Brown Canadian military oxfords and a generic pair of well made English shoes (on the right). The English shoes are a bit of a mystery. They are marked in US sizing, but the sock-liner just says "Shoes". As you might guess, googling "Shoes Made in England" gave lots of results but was not much help. I suspect they were a private label offering for a clothier made by a decent British manufacturer. They have pleasing lines in comparison to the military shoes IMO. I am cleaning up the "Shoes" for a friend who has discovered Indochino suits, but not decent footwear. I picked them up for $10 and I am hoping he will buy me a $12 Thai lunch to cover the purchase and my Bicks 4 and polish.
We have a great hobby. I have been to the gym today, done my grocery shopping, my wife and girls are out, and now I get to spend the afternoon listening to music, drinking tea and working on some shoes. Perfect!

Wow. Very cool (for a law professor). lol.WOW! The shell game is strong today!
Dang those Bourbon shell boots are GREAT! That's a gorgeous color!
HA! I know exactly what you mean. I have never been cool either. In fact, I noticed something that proves this.
I caught a reflection of myself this morning in the elevator. I guess I had not noticed the whole thing before I left my house. I have, apparently, turned into one of my law professors.
I knew I wanted to wear my vintage suede Florsheim wingtips today. And it is a little cold today so instead of wearing a coat, I wore a tweed Sport coat.
SO, I'm wearing 1960's Suede wingtips, with a Tweed Sport coat (with elbow patches) and I need a haircut so my hair is at that middle-aged-man-trying-to-capture-his-rebellious-days length. If I was smoking a pipe and driving a Volvo I would be a caricature!

Those are most certainly Sanders shoes. The large S on both ends of the insock stamping stands for Sanders& Sanders of Rushden. The shoe is a British Army parade dress shoe. Sanders is the primary producer of GYW footwear for the MoD, and approximately 50% of their total factory production is devoted to it.
That is so cool to know. Thank you very much. It is also wonderful that I ended up cleaning them up with twp pairs of Canadian Army dress Oxfords. Appropriate.Those are most certainly Sanders shoes.
