Two best indicators are: 1) the condition of the interior of the shoes. If they are ragged out (i.e., discolored/blackened, sweat stains, etc), that is a good indication to pass. 2) the condition of the soles. If the soles are heavily worn, you should probably pass. Also, look for a little hammer symbol branded into the soles. This indicates that the shoes have been recrafted (indicating even more wear). However, before you go the eBay route, I would...

I do have large collar bands - 1.75 inches front/2 inches back - and commensurate points on my shirts to balance out my...
