These have been hanging out on ebay for a while (posted earlier in this thread, at least the penny beefrolls) for half that.
I bought a set a couple months ago and thought the vamp was *really* low and decided I had to return them.
J Press is having an online three day sale (Sept 21-23) with a lot 50-70% off: http://jpressonline.com/sale2.php
Thanks! Mostly dreck, but nice deal on Armor Lux L/S Shirts in Navy and Natural, only size is (L) $33 - http://www.jpressonline.com/sale_shirts_detail.php?id=1529Q_429
The only way I agee with your point is if the individual learned of the sale of his own accord. If it was someone who learned about it on the "Public Service Announcement" thread and then swooped in to clean house (40 pairs of shoes!!!) so that no one else could enjoy the benefit, they simply suck as a person. And, no, I do not live in New York, and had no intent to pick up a pair.
