I've found the sizing of both brands to be very inconsistant (or just too many different cuts). The cotton Mabitex I found to be extremely slim. The Incotex for Zegna ever so slightly looser in the thigh (which is good for me). The nice thing about them, if you buy the wrong size, they're easily flipped on the B&S for practically no loss.

I love the...

Slippery as hell on smooth/tiled/wet surfaces. But, it makes a very distinctive sound when walking that can't be duplicated by mere leather heels and lasts forever (coupled with all those nails). Personally, I've replaced about half my original v-cleat heels...

If you don't want to follow eBay's rules, don't use their service. I don't paying high fees, either, but it beats using Craigslist or other online systems. The bottom line is that without eBay, 90% of sellers wouldn't have another distribution...
eBay seller name should be posted in the feedback thread. This guy/girl is shady.

I'd say these are better suited for someone usually wearing a 8.5 or 9 and/or with a slim foot. With that said, pictures don't do these shoes justice; they're really beautiful in...
I really like the combination of the whole-cut with the Norwegian welt in the second pair; lends to a lovely "checks and balances," on the whole. These would look awesome on my feet
Get a pair of the Inco/Mabi's on B&S and have them tailored. Some great summer colors/fabrics on the board right now.
Those LLoyd & Haig's look great with flat, cotton laces. I am going to have to do that with a pair of mine. Great shoes at a great price!

Ha! In all honesty, they are great looking shoes that have a really nice 'worn in...
