    Now that the weather is cooled down a bit and I'm losing a bit of weight and I've started dressing again, I'm wearing my inside dress shoes. These are NOS vintage Wright Archpreservers--never worn outside. I'm not sure when they were made, but I'm guessing 70's or 80's. I think they compare quite favorably to my modern Crockett & Jones penny loafers in terms of style.

    Nuts--I'm still struggling trying to figure out how to post photos since they changed the forum.

    I think you can look at them on this link. Maybe. Let me know.

        Thanks. I guess I'm going to need to sign up for photo hosting site. Crap. Another website.

        Joe -- if you're listening (reading)--storage is cheap now AND I for one would be happy to pay a small membership fee if you had a "premium" membership option that allowed me to directly upload photos. I bet I'm not the only one.

          Took the Iron Rangers out for a ride. Great Fall boot.

            Wearing my Jack Erwin suede chelseas today, where the top lift came off of the heel when someone stepped on it from the back. Hard to believe I've had these for 5+ years. But year, if there was any doubt what they used for heel blocks...

              kongmw back in the days when I took the bus to work (wow, imagine that!) someone stepped on my dress shoe and I was mad! When I managed to get off the bus there was a big scuff from there the person stepped on the front of my shoe. So I hear ya about the heel getting ripped off. Not cool. Hope you're able to find a cobbler to fix the shoes back up again.

                Dropped them off at a shoe repair shop this morning. Having both heels (heel pads?) repair is going to run me $40. The uppers still look good so hopefully they can soldier on with the new heels for another year or two.

                      Those are great looking! Not at all like the bourbon color I had.

                        AE calf bourbon is markedly different from Horween's bourbon shell. My Daltons are roughly the same shade but burnished a good bit more.

                        The shell will certainly age well over time, I'm very excited to see them patina.
