It’s been a while. But I thought I’d share these
31 year old Church’s Custom Grade Semi-Brogues, discarded as “too beaten up”, brought back to life with Pure Polish Cleaner Conditioner, Burgundy Cream Polish, Burgundy Paste/Wax Polish, and High Shine for the final buffing. Laces by Fintoco.

I was watching a similar pair on eBay recently and thought they were cool but no way I could pull them off. Seeing these, I might have to reconsider. Those look great with some jeans!
If a brother here can pull them off, then so can you.

Vintage J&Ms with a cool feature: the tassels are sewn into the laces.

Needless to say I tore the rack apart looking for more goodies but all I found were some meat and potatoes quality shoes. AE Park Aves for one of my sons and 8 1/2D Sanfords.

Day 2 of 5 for trials this week. Yesterday I wore Loake Laxford (not vintage) which are black captoes. The prosecutor showed up in Carmina shell monk straps.

So I will mostly certainly outdo him with my Herbie Butler custom Florsheim shells. I really should have bought the entire lot. 5 pairs of NOS shell, for $150 USD per pair. Sigh.
