Please either put them away in a cupboard or delete the post

:inlove: :drool::fistbump:
Not 10.5, nor close to an E, so back the the cupboard!

well, more likely off to Japan via the ‘Bay if I ever get round to it.

J&M was one of the best, and not just for the Handmades. Great lasts, leathers and top notch finishing was the order of the day.

Oh yeah, and those Handmades...
Absolutely gorgeous ! :)
This is called the "Regency" wingtip.

Still looking for a new/mint condition "Handmade 100", it's probably my holy grail as far as vintage shoes go.
I was able to find few pairs over the years, but they're pretty rare at this point.

I found some JM Handmade alligator cap toes on Ebay. They were wonderful and came in an original box and bags IIRC. Sadly, they were too tight and I could not wear them. I rest easy in the thought that they are safely in the @madhat closet and being looked after correctly.

How bad was the fit for you to surrender a grail pair like that?

Today it's Sears shoes made by Hanover. These are heavy and solidly built. I really need to take them to the cobbler for a good cleanup but they're super comfortable and tempting to wear. Size 12E. "Sears, Sears, Sears, where America shops for value" In fact, now that I look at myself, I'm wearing Sears brands from head to toe: wristwatch (Structure), shoes, socks (Craftsman), shirt (David Taylor), jeans (Basic Editions). As the song says, "I'm wearing all my favorite brands, brands, brands, brands"

Man nobody is, seen a post about them on buy and sell forum from like 10 years ago. Dude said their like a middle of the pack brand. Found these at a thrift a city over. I enjoy them.
eBay has three pairs of this brand currently, a size 7 and a couple 10s.

Thanks, I never knew it was a regency. I was into vintage shoes for awhile and found several pair over the years, never in my exact size though. Might pick up the hunt again after about a 10 year break...once I get on with some downsizing.

Any pictures of those you've come across?

In addition to a nice J&M Hand Made, the New Englander in (10.5 D) from Edwinn Clapp is high on my grail list.

I have those in black, they are solidly built.

Mine didn't even complain when I stretched them from 12 to 13.5, using medieval methods.
