EG loafers 12/12.5 C 184 last.   NIB but with rubber over-soles added (shame). Starting bid £200 or BIN £350.   Perfect size for me, but I don't like loafers!
EG Malvern UK 12.5D in Dark Oak. New without box. Starting bid £200 or BIN £285.   0.5 too large for me or I wouldn't be posting!

The salesman advised me these were actually...
I'm bald. But thanks!
Hello   I have been lurking on here for a few weeks now and I have to say this is a great resource. There is information on here which is simply not available anywhere else.   My main interest at the moment is in shoes, for two reasons:   1) I have become sick of paying £80-120 for brand name shoes which last six months before the glued-on sole peel off; and 2) I am taking delivery of my first bespoke suit (a leaving gift from a previous employer) so I need...
