PSA. Leeds store has bottle green cordovan PAs in 12.5B.




Tell Earl Carl sent you and you might get a little price break. I stopped in while passing through to say farewell as Earl has always done me right and been a huge help. The store was looking pretty sad but I grabbed a chili wide basic belt for $30 that matches my walnut shell Daltons pretty well.

Edit: color 8/burgundy/oxblood.


Are you sure it isn't a 10.5D? wink.gif

My Rush Streets arrived over the weekend:    (picked these firsts up on clearance when they popped up in my size...)

 

 

That's my last shoe purchase for a while... I swear it is...

Yep. It is an s2000 trunk. It is my weekend car now. It's got some miles on her now, but I can't see myself getting rid of her anytime soon. Love the car.

Are the Weybridges patent leather? They sure felt pretty smooth. I can't find a description of them anymore. The BCF here has my size but hoping they drop further, even at $99 I don't have a strong desire to bite. But if they dropped to the $35 the size 7 Players shoes were (with no 2nd mark) I'd be all over it for a once a month shoe.

They do not appear to be patent leather. The AE shoe care guide describes them as calf leather. The same shoe care guide clearly labels some models as patent, like the Copely, but the Waybridges are not one of them. It appears there was a batch of Weybridges released to BCF and they are in numerous stores now. My local BCF has three pair in 8.5 D at the same $99. As they just arrived, I would not expect any price reduction for a very long time. Ah, go ahead and get them. As they were discontinued you will never find another new pair once these are gone.

 

By the way, the shoe care guide is really valuable and can be found here.

Auction sniper bid for me with 8 seconds left in the auction and since no other bids, I bought these for $299.
Are you happy with Auction Sniper? Any security concerns? I am thinking of using them after I have lost couple of items that I really wanted to last second bids.

I use them for 100% of my auction bidding on eBay, for well over 10 years.  There are other services too, but I have never been unhappy, never missed a bid, etc, so never shopped around.  I highly recommend them.  

 

This is the only logical way to bid on an eBay style auction.

Actually, they're vintage and -- I believe -- may be on a different last and run slightly larger than more recent examples. I'f you're interested, let me know and I can measure for you...

Edit: Apparently, they are on the 97 (AKA 7) last.

Thanks, didn't think to check the guide. They just seemed a bit different than my normal calf shoes. While neat, the price to number of wears they would see is not there yet. I've bought and sold many balmorals without wearing them because of my work environment. Only one I wish I had back. The natural shell strand. So the Weybridge is something I can sit back on and not feel bad if it gets away.

Nice! If only I had such a large foot.

They are "polished cobbler" or corrected grain leather.
