 Thank you for the feedback - Yup, in the comparison pic the shoe on the right is the Stratton.  The mark on the sole in the photo is just a smudge from wearing today, there is no marking to represent a recraft or second.  I do wonder though if the MacNeil was ever re-crafted as the sole does not look like the traditional AE sole although the rubber heel does.  Unfortunately I do not have an AE store anywhere around me, but I do have a Brooks Brothers store that sells...
Evening everyone, I am looking for a bit of feedback.  Well over a year ago I thrifted a pair of MacNeils in 11C.  They feel pretty good width wise, but are definitely a bit too long.  Regardless, because they were thrifted and in tremendous shape I kept them for myself.  Last week, I decided to purchase a pair of 10.5D Stratton's, which are also made from the 7 last, in great condition.  I tried wearing them for the first time today and they are incredibly narrow.  Much...
Hey everyone, I hope the thrifting gods are being friendly to everyone.  I just wanted to drop in and recognize/say thank you to @GMMcL.  A number of times I have come across one of his suits while surfing on ebay.  Each time I have contacted him to purchase, the suit has always been top notch quality, just as identified in the auction, a great price, and shipped instantly.  Thanks again for the most recently Canali, it fit like a glove without a cent of tailoring needed. ...
Hi thrifting gents, I'm moving up the career ladder and where trouser/sport coat used to be acceptable and nice looking, two piece suits are now the expectation.  I'm good with solid suits, and don't want anything too flashy, but I'm looking for a pinstripe suit in navy blue and one gray.  If you have any for sale inbetween a 44/46L with approximately 47" chest, 20'+ shoulders, 26.25" sleeve, and 38/30 trousers send me a PM with info and price.    I'm not overly worried...
Well gentlemen, I wanted to say thank you and goodbye.  I'm "retiring" from ebay thrift flipping since I'm taking the next step in my career, and finding a new side business which is a bit more passive.  I'll be starting the Superintendent's Development Program in about two weeks, and I've become infatuated with real estate investing and just bought my first rental property (I'll use property management so it's truly passive)!    I appreciate all the great advice and...
 As angry as I would be, you may want to swallow your pride temporarily, ignore his "deplorable" comment, and simply respond, "I'm sorry you felt that the experience was a neutral one, what can I do to change your feelings to a positive experience?"  If he ignores you and ebay eventually reviews the claim, they may see that you tried to make every effort possible.  In a best case scenario, he says blah blah, then you address it and he changes the feedback. Regardless, I've...
 Not sure how long it's been since you contacted the buyer, but give some extra time for the holidays.  Otherwise, this may help: http://pages.ebay.com/help/feedback/revision-request.html
  Start them high and leave them high, you'll find a buyer.  I can't find the completed auction for some reason, but I sold a pair for a hell of a lot more than I expected earlier this year.   Whatever works!  I'm also generally the "babies survived eons without this..." guy as well, but it drowns out the dog's click clacking nails. 
 If you haven't purchased one yet, buy a children's noise maker from walmart.  It will allow you to play white noise, heart beat, water, whatever.  It's peaceful and more important, we crank it to 100% so it drowns out sounds from outside the babies room and thus he's not woken up as easily.  We use white noise, the heartbeat is creepy. If you come across any 38, PM me, odds are, I may buy them!  I'm not sure how urban/rural you are, but I googled "local cobbler" and...
 I have this bookmarked but it's definitely not what I'm hoping to find someday, if you find something better please share! http://www.turnbullandasser.com/p/108/weaves  Yup, back in 2003!  They were generally USPS MOs.
