Re: SOS Show 2016

First time I have tried anything like this, so here goes in case anyone is interested. i was at the Santa Barbara Gun Sun show today and saw a very convincing pair of tropical boots for $1250. The dealer told me he was going to SOS Show next weekend with the boots if they didn't sell on this first day of the show I attended. I thought I would submit these and the accompanying tropical Luftwaffe shirts to the Forum and took a few photos with my cell phone and got the dealers card in case anyone is interested!  Enjoy! big_smile

Re: SOS Show 2016

Thanks Barron.
The link works for me. The tropical stuff you saw at the show are not listed at his website.

Re: SOS Show 2016

He had said that he obtained the tropical the weekend before, so he probably didn't have the time. Cell is probably best contact chance as I am sure he is at show already. Didn't say if he was driving or flying.  Barron

Re: SOS Show 2016

No prob Barron. I have someone attending the SOS and he could get them for me, but without seeing nice, clear close up photos i can't take the risk.

Re: SOS Show 2016

Take a risk for 1250 dollars? tongue no way man.
From the color of the leather and the frontal part i would say they seem repros to me but that it's just an assumption. If you managed to get more photos of them please post.
Also try to take pics of any tropical items you see especially caps and "pinkies" tongue

Nice faded boots Mark. IMO way overpriced for a mismatched pair. For 2.500 euros one can find a super nice matching pair.

Re: SOS Show 2016

So, here are the first pics!
I was sick this week and not in the best condition:( !
The show was very buisy and a lot of people around there. Nice was that they had there the original guys from Band of Brothers. They signd books and you could have a talk with them.
But there was also a lot of copys around and you have to be very carefully and done your homework.
Prices i will ad to the pictures. By the most i try to take the tags on the pictures!
I will start with the shoes. After inspecting them i am not so shure like in the beginning! Excuse some bad/blurry pictures!

Thomas!
