Coincidentally, i was looking at the site this morning with many that I want. But I will need to sell some to make room.

Great prices and I think there are some sizes for fellow forum guys.

Just remember Canadian and English brands use different lettering to note widths. Ask us if there's a doubt.

Where did you get that made?

I plan on visiting family in Hong Kong in future, so might get one, or have a custom meen lap.

Happy Lunar New Year as well.
It's imported ready to wear bought locally here in Northern California. My friend import them from VN.

My wife's is custom made though.

Picked up another pair of 93605s as an upgrade for my current pair, which are quite a bit older and much more worn. This pair is from 1985. These are the closest to "new" that I've handled so far. They have about the same amount of wear as my Nettletons (I'll do a side by side later, the Nettletons are a much brighter red and also more chunky looking).

On this pair, the quarters don't seem to be broken in yet. I forgot to take a picture of the soles but the leather across the ball isn't worn down to the stitching. There's some wear to the heels but I'd guess these have less than 20 wears, maybe fewer than 10. Obviously, difficult to know. These are still drying a little from a few coats of Bick4 and VSC. More images to come... These pics aren't great since it's very overcast and we're about to get an inch of rain. :)

Me and my 93602s that I dyed with my sons are enjoying a gorgeous California day.

Those are really something else. I will have to find a pair to produce similar pair.
Thanks. It was a fun project. They look dark brown in low light. In bright light the red hues come out.

Not Vintage since I bought these new about 18 months ago. Just thought I'd post my very first attempt at doing a custom patina. They started as Walnut and I got some stain on one shoe that I could but get out. Not even sure what it was. Ended up having to lightly sand it to remove. They were already stripped so I said, fuck it. Just finished and shined!
