This week I'm wearing a new addition to my collection. These spectators were made by Lee Kee, the famed bespoke maker out of Hong Kong. They look to have been worn just a handful of times, and came with the original box and receipt from 1958. The construction is excellent as expected, but what really impressed me was the leather, which might be the smoothest I've ever felt.

I wonder what the exchange rate was back then.

For the first time in months I found something decent at Goodwill. Nothing mind-blowing, but bread and butter stuff like these 92604s, Tony Lama belt, and Diesel jeans. I need to get more items listed on the 'Bay.

They count in my book. Really cool
I was shocked that baby shoes were gyw in the 80s. Lol. I was secretly being prepped!

Visited my mom for Christmas and she asked me to moisturize these as they've been worn for three decades. Had to give em a little love to keep them supple.

looking for a little help with these Nettleton Traditional loafers in Alligator I believe. Any info as far as sizing or model has worn off. My google searches for gator loafers has turned up nothing. These are pics I have, can take more if you need more info.
The Tweeds are a sie 10 and maybe a quarter inch longer than the nettletons, so my guess is 9.5-10 on size.

I've had several pairs of these Nettleton loafers over the years. On the older pairs, the size information was hand marked, so it's possible the markings wore off. The machine printed size information does not wear off easily on Nettleton shoes.

Your pair looks to be in quite good condition, so its entirely possible that your pair was not marked, or they're not marked in an obvious way, although for Nettleton that would be unusual.

When it comes to size estimation, I've found that these loafers run on the narrower side, which can further complicate estimating the size. Without a good host of other shoes to compare to, I think it will be challenging to narrow down what size these shoes are precisely.
