I'm thinking of outright banning all ebayers that ask stupid questions. Someone just asked me that my inseam cannot possibly be the same as the waist. My reply would be:
BANNED! From my current and future auctions.
The problem with this is that you're unlikely to find your grail shoe find in a thrift & in your size. Sure you'll find some Aldens that may fit you but they'll be some All-weather-walkers or something like that Now, I just set my ebay saved searches or look out for sales in a model I want.
I didn't get the blue message, but I did get the ship. confirmation. I only ordered the marlows. That's all I wanted. That's all I'll get. No upgraded shipping. Booyaa!
And, these are for me, not for selling. Umm, I still need to see if 1) they are free from defects and 2) they fit.
Will post pix on arrival. Thanks, RL!

Need some help again id'ing a moccasin boot. I didn't have my phone so I didn't snap pix. However, I can tell you that it was made for ralph lauren and it kinda looked like quoddy's ring boots below:
A key difference from the pix above was that the laces had those horn toggle buttons. One was missing. Of course the straps weren't as thick as the straps used above. Said made in Maine on the sidewall. It could have been made by Quoddy, but also Highland or even...
Any interest in this Lauren Ralph Lauren true SC in 43R?I picked it up 2-3 years ago because the shoulders are phenomenal. They are padded but they slope just perfectly. However, I don't know if I lost weight or what but it fits me loose in the waist. I'm more of a 41R to 42R. Maybe a true 43R can use this. I think it's made by Jack Victor in Canada (see tag). A little lighter than navy but not much.Oh, it is 58 silk and 42%wool. Single vented. I bought it new at...
