Up for sale is a pair of dark brown suede bluchers by Alden in size 7.5. These bluchers use Alden's flex welt sole, which means it is more flexible than their standard leather sole. The shoes have some crease marks in the suede and have had a decent amount of wear, although I believe the sole should have plenty of life left before needing replacement. The shoe laces have just been replaced. These shoes retail for $575 new, as you can see here:...
Up for sale is a pair of dark brown Alden chukkas on the Barrie last, size 6.5. The leather is a Kudu Chromexcel that requires very little maintenance. There is a lair of cork under the insole that makes these shoes very comfortable. The bottom sole is a sturdy Goodyear rubber, which makes this a shoe that can handle rugged conditions in spite of how stylish it looks. I've had these shoes for several years and while they've been worn with relative frequency, they are...
Up for sale is a JCrew Ludlow topcoat in a grey Abraham Moon tweed. JCrew is no longer offering a topcoat in this fabric. This particular coat has only been worn two or three times. It has no fraying, stains, or any signs of visible wear. The Ludlow topcoats start at $450. I am asking $150 for this one, including shipping within the US.
I am selling a pair of black Kent Wang bench grade plain toe balmorals. Not only have they been lightly worn, but the soles have had Vibram applied as well as heel taps. All of which is to say that these shoes are in excellent condition. I am asking $150 for them plus shipping. Shoe bags are included.
I am offering for sale a small crossbody messenger / map bag by Tumi in black ballistic nylon with leather accents and an adjustable shoulder strap. The bag has a main compartment accessible via zipper with a smaller zippered-off compartment on the back wall, and organizational pockets on the front. The front of the bag has a smaller compartment that is covered with a magnetized flap. On the back side of the bag there is a large pocket suitable for holding odd documents...
I have a pair of lightly worn Crockett & Jones "Savile" dark brown monk straps in size 6 (UK) on the 337 last. They feature a single hand-finished brass buckle. The soles have been professionally treated with Topy (see photos). These shoes are around $750 new. The Saville is a handgrade shoe made from calf skin of the highest quality. The shoes are breathtakingly lovely, by far the nicest I have ever owned, but they are too narrow for my toes to the point of causing acute...
SOLD I am parting with a pair of Alden shell cordovan monk straps in size 7 on the Aberdeen last, which it turns out is too tight for my feet. The shoes have been lightly worn, no more than half a dozen times, with minimal scuffing and wear. I'll also throw in an unused jar of color 8 cordovan polish. Felt shoe bags are included. I am asking $400 for these shoes. They retail new for around $700.
Description: Loose fitting black leather buttoned jacket with removable liner. Although the jacket is size S, it fits somewhat large on me, as a consequence of which I haven't worn it that often. It is 5 or 6 years old. This is a longer jacket, much more so than a bomber or motorcycle jacket, and it's meant to be more loose fitting. On me it falls just below my front pants pockets. Manufacturer: Coach Condition: Gently used with wear showing only on the bottom hem and...
Bump again. Now they've opened a store in DC. Apparently it features a fully stocked bar, which seems rather tacky and gimmicky to me.
What other people are saying about drape seems to be correct. I recently had a couple of jackets made for me, and I simply brought a sweater to the second fitting to make sure it would fit under the jackets. As it happens, it did. Since the fabric of the jackets was a heavier weight, my tailor had already cut them to be slightly more loose than usual. Yet they still look quite fitted, even without the sweater.
