Congrats to the quick draw McGraw who snagged those 9.5 Alfred Sargent Hunts in chestnut.
Nice tip, looking forward to trying on my bloomed Lindricks in the near future.
Congrats!Quoting myself from edmorel's thread:
I was never onboard with monks, they just always seemed to fussy for me. But then I started delineating between double monks and single monks; and I realized some singles were OK. Eventually I came around to singles that buckle at the ankle instead of across the vamp, I suppose which downplay or even hide the buckle a bit, are at the end of the pool I'm willing to jump in. Paul Stuart's fall line has these single straps which look pretty handsome to my eye. Even with...
I'll also mention that I've seen a pair of slightly (barely?) used in 10.5US making the rounds on ebay for quite a few weeks without being sold. It almost looks like the seller just gave up on listing them - at $274 they're a bargain if it's what you want. Here's his last listing.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carmina-Albaladejo-Richelieu-Bicolore-Wingtip-Spectators-10-5-US-MSRP-600-USD-/321511032183?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item4adb8d0577I' not affiliated with the seller at all,...

Geez, I wish there was a way I could have scored for the styleforum vendors - but shipping would have made it not worth it. If I was thinking, I would have taken a picture that would have made you drool. There were probably, all told, 80+ of various types, and most were $20, $30. You store owners (b&m or virtual) could have totally made out, it sucks you can't take advantage of it.
Thanks! - I paid $50. I hadn't thought about it until you mentioned it, but I just googled and - geez - they ain't cheap! $50 is give away pricing (and mine happened to be the most expensive of the lot, all the rest were like $20-$40).
If someone would have told me when I left the house today that I'd come home with a mannequin, I'd have called then @#$% crazy. But I swing my local Nordstroms to find it went out of business - poof! - and is already nothing but fixtures. I mosey in just to look around* and among the endless tables, mirrors, display racks, are a bunch of mannequins - lots of the plastic "fashion" kinds, a bunch of more "static", classic types, but one with wooden articulating arms on a...
It's crazy, I've never seen anything like it before - there's a company there who is hired to move everything out, sell it all down to the bare walls. One guy was buying some of the wall shelving in the men's shoe dept - the 10ft high slanted wood display shelves for shoes, said they were going home in his closet. I've just never seen a store being "cleaned out", interesting to see first hand. Ps they are wheel in and dealin too, buy enough and they'll negotiate it...
