Shhh! You weren't supposed to mention that!
Alden model 900 in 9.5C. Nothing really special about them, except that the seller states that they're shell cordovan, and implies that they're whiskey SC. I'm not sure what's "custom" about them.
Twenty-two bids so far.
I sent the seller a message last week, telling him/her that the model 900 is made of calfskin, not shell cordovan. I included a link to the shoe on Sky Valet's site....
When out, BB black calfskin, bowed pumps. (These: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=§ionsize=)
I bought them to replace the same shoe, but in patent leather. I was looking for a change, but regret getting the calfskin version.
At home: black satin, bowed pumps.
Alden tassel loafers in size 8.5D. Opening bid: $59.99. They look nearly new.
The seller describes them as "calfskin/deer leather". They looked like shell to me, so I asked the seller what the model number was. The answer was model 563, which is #8 shell.
NOS BB white OCBD. 16.5 x 33. Opening bid of $24.95. Still in the wrapper.
Based on the "Makers" label and the style of the price tag, I believe this shirt is of the vintage that had the thin (no interlining?) collar that produced the perfect BB roll.
AE Bel Air in black. Size 9.5B. BIN of $59.99. The seller says they were worn just once, and for a change, the (one) picture seems to bear this out.
