Seller must be a member if he's calling it bigtimer. Is this Alberts?

Delicious.

If not for the uber narrow size these vtg shells would be a steal. Well, they are a steal if you are 12A, I think the seller is really reaching with the suggestion that these would work for a 10.5D facepalm.gif

Actually, that seller's a very nice guy and, he does get some great inventory (as you can see). I have bought 2 pairs from him that I keep for myself and am very happy with both. That said, That is a very tough size to fit properly.

He might be a great guy, I never suggested that we was not. He bought a pair from me once, paid right way no problemo. As for the sizing/fit remarks in some of his auctions..... well caveat emptor as they say.

I tend to agree with you. I find it completely dishonest when sellers make suggestions that a 12A will work for a 10.5D. Unfortunately, there are people stupid enough to follow that advice.

I think you get me wrong on this one. Not trying to sound defensive at all, and my apologies if it was mis-interpreted. Seller is not me, just someone who I have made quality buys from in the past.

I was discussing this with a friend of mine just the other day. As a seller, I personally limit myself to nothing more narrow than a "B" as a general rule. To an extent, many buyers rely on sellers when it comes to issues, especially fit. There is a fine line between wanting to make sure the buyer is well-taken care of + happy with the ultimate purchase VS. wanting to make a sale. I try my best to stay out of any grey areas with this because reputation is so very important & Repeat Buyers make up the majority of my sales. In addition, I LOVE Vintage shoes and appreciate the fact that many buyers are trying out their very first pair of True Vintage when they make a purchase from me. If the experience is great for them, they may well learn to love the genre as much as I do. If experience is bad, they will probably have negative feelings about Vintage Shoes and never try them again.

Looked odd cause it turns out it's women's. Oh well, worth a shot. Seller's apologetic and taking a return, so no loss.

Hilarious! At least you're not losing anything out of it.. That wouldn't be hilarious at all.

When you look at the photo now it is rather obvious that the buttons are on the wrong side, but if you are not looking for it, if you believe it is a men's jacket, then it is easy to miss.

is it possible to remove the part for the golf?
post #9403 of 12967
The cleats/spikes usually unscrew, but then you're still left with the female end of the bolt in the sole.

No, the boss needs to walk around the office in them, to show the peons who is the real "Bause".

Yeah, it's definitely obvious when it's pointed out to you. The bottom button being down at the level of the patch pockets is a pretty big giveaway too.

No problem -- seller's being good about it.
