Florsheim Guardsman today. I wore them to my son’s little league game. Here’s a shocker: I was the only dad there with vintage Florsheims.

Imagine seeing another guy on the bench wearing another Guardsman. Would you slide up next to him and put yours in his view?
Uhhhh... probably. I’d chew his ear off about shoes too.

Oh man! I am so excited. I got pictures back from the Cobbler on my Florsheim Bison LWB and the 1959 Florsheim Alligator/Crocodile Derby.

You had doubts on you stitching colour choice the other day. I think it's spot on! It's "light" enough to be visible and contrast to the welt and upper. But it's not too loud.
Great job by the cobbler as well.

I stumbled across a US maker called Stone Tarlow. They apparently made golf and dress shoes. I have seen two photos of shell PTBs and a split toe. These are 10.5D and are NOS from our forum pal. Link

They also apparently had a line of shoes that were elevators for the short guys.

Anybody an 8EEE? Someone is selling a pair of 97625 that was just redone by Steve. Looks nice!
