Last fall, Alaina Moore from Columbia College Chicago’s costume department contacted me inquiring about a pair of vintage Bort Carleton leather wingtips from the shop.
She wanted to know if they would be mailed in time for a production of a play at the college. Curious to see what they looked like paired in a production with costumes, she sent me photos after the play had premiered. The shoes were for a character named, Ignatius Dullfeet, played by Wesley Schilling. Here are the photos.
