I went to the Alameda Antiques Market today and picked up a nice pair of vintage Florsheim Royal Imperial scotch grain bluchers. At $45 they’re a bit more than I generally pay for shoes, but I rarely come across vintage shoes this nice, and I thought it a fair price…I love the color and texture, and their condition is exquisite. The shoes have v-cleats in the heel and metal toe taps, so the soles are in fantastic shape, and the still-bright cream stitching on the welt contrasts nicely with the light tone of the leathers. I’m sure these will become regulars in my rotation in the upcoming months. Perfect for pairing with corduroy trousers and tweed sport coats.
