You are happy to be pedantic about the differences between a cap-toe and plain-toe oxford, but get all excited about glued MTO shoes for $150AU, to the point where you suggest sourcing high-end uppers from overseas.
I wasn't sure if you were serious, because they look like what they are - mass-made glued shoes, sold at any variety of pseudo-luxury clothing retailers in Australia (Calibre, Paul Smith, Saba, etc.). Comparing them to English or otherwise bench-made shoes is laughable.
There are some significant problems with that jacket. The front doesn't look right at all, and I think that camera angle isn't to blame. I think Vox's comments sum it up. I would take this back to them and see what they think.
They sold very quickly. I didn't have trouble selling them at all.I was offended, because I had already listed them well below their value, only to have a few Australian Members attempt to low-ball me even further.
I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that.I just take offense to Members here thinking that just because someone buys something in person in a bricks and mortar store in Australia, that they are attempting to show off in some perverted way. I think a more likely explanation is that the thought of saving $100-$300 isn't important enough for them to go to the effort of finding a better price online.
