You are correct. A TRUE austerity brogue has no perforation. But, these are pretty close.

These are Allen Edmonds and are really called the “Tom, Dick, and Harry.”
Ahhhh that makes sense. It has a vague resemblance to the Chester. Guessing it was made during the same general time frame. Going to have to look out for a pair of those.

So here I am in Maui thinking…
What do we do with our shoe collections when we pass away? My wife thinks they cost around $10.00 each! She said she’d send them all to St. Vincent de Paul. Horrors!
Can we not engage a group lawyer to draft a generic will so they would be passed between the brothers? Donated to a museum?
In fact we have at least one legal mind in the group but we may need an American locum to take care of our southern neighbour.
Just a thought.

I say: Your flesh belongs to you, but your shoes belong to the Shoe Brotherhood.

My shoes are to be sent to @mariusscott to be consigned. My kids get first dibs at pairs they want to keep.

Otherwise, name a person, or persons you trust to sell the shoes at value.

I really am not fearful of my imminent doom, but given I have a rare shoe size, and if I was involved in any communities (like this one), I'd bequeath them either to any of my family that have the same sized feet, or would offer them to this community at a reasonable rate. Currently, I do not have any such family members, but here's hoping a future Mrs. JFWR would birth some sons with fat feet for me to give them to down the line.

Like @smfdoc and I are 11.5/12 EEE guys. I'd rather a friend of mine like him have my shoes, than just dump them at good will.

Kosmo approves of today’s shoe choice for her walk: Executive Imperial by Mason. These were the first vintage shoes I acquired on the open market (vs cultivating my own from original purchase).

If you hear of my assasination, expect a gigantic delivery of shoes.

Thankfully, the great Oxfords Worn Casually War has concluded without fatalities.
