Paging Spoo...

 

 

Did you find a wallet to go with the shoes and gloves yet?

Look at how many people will buy used shoes, and not like once or twice used, like solidly creased, with the soles shaped to someone else's foot.

You may not understand, but that's no reason to be a prick.

I personally grew up with a father that would find and fix old things that he thought were cool. So I inherited that and now also enjoy finding unique items and restoring them, or leaving the character it has accumulated through the years. For all you or I know, someone reading this thread has this lighter or parts for this lighter and has been looking for one. I have received several PMs from members thanking me for something I posted because they'd been looking for it, or it was a perfect complement to something they already owned. I can't imagine how many of these PMs J or Malford have received, because my lists aren't even that good.

Good price on Bally Scribe UK 8 (42)

Bit Austro-Hungarian for my liking but if that last shape is your kind of thing - it's a bargain.

Good price, but those must be pretty old.
They have in the current collection a vintage inspired model. I tried them yesterday, they were on sale (40% off) here in Switzerland. They are not Scribe, still too conservative for my taste, available also online.
In green 234

and brown

They're old but workmanship will be the same. Also - they are hardly worn.

Isaia 42R / 42L Windowpane Jacket

Alden Shell Loafers 10.5

Not sure why I didn't list this on SF first.

I'm not sure ed's being a prick - just sounds like his opinion. Half the time when I post some shoes or a watch, some prick, er.. SFer will say, "fugly" or some such enlightened comment.

I refer to the nuances in his words. However, in the interest of keeping this thread on track, I am not going to respond to any further posts on this matter. I apologize for taking it this far.

a LOT of "Internet Cajones". Unkind statements made on the internet by people who generally do not have the courage to make such statements in person.

there is a lot of gross shit on ebay...and shoes and clothing that have been worn more than once or twice generally fall in that category imo. but what i don't get is why some folks come to this thread to ride their high horse...if you are so resolute in your disapproval of ebay...why are you wasting your time posting here? ebay frequently offers up items that are otherwise unavailable, anywhere...like this briefcase, for instance:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/320800762893?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

yes it is a gamble can't return, can't inspect in person, etc., but one simply simply factors the possiblity/probability of reselling as necessary into the price and it is no big deal.

Haha, wait till you meet some of the crazier coin collectors. (Oh wait, I'm one of them...)
