I'm still curious of how those shell Oundles look...

Nice shoe. I can see what you mean, would look better with a burnished toe. Please keep us posted with how it turns out. Would love to try something like this myself

I agree, it would look better with some contrast. You can probably get that by wearing and brushing though.

i. People like that go to the factory sale and take most of the shoes; people, who want to wear the shoes, miss out. At this pop-up sale, the first customer brought 45 pocket squares that they will sell on, do you think that is fair?

ii. Shoes more expensive then Edward Green RRP and defect shoes being listed more expensive then perfect shoes at the Jermyn Street sale. Not everyone is based near London, Northampton or Manchester; eBay is a way for them to buy shoes. Even with eBay and PayPal charges, they can offer more competitive prices - they would sell more shoes and a lot quicker too.

There is an eBay seller, it does not matter which one, that is selling RTW John Lobb crocodile shoes for £7.5k when a MTO G&G Deco with alligator leather costs £4.2k. The £7.5k shoes has always been relisted because no one is going to pay that crazy price.

Fair? what is this, first grade? facepalm.gif


Nobody is forcing you to buy a pair of defective shoe for more than list price either. The shoes will either sell or they won't.


Oh, and you "forgot" to figure in the upfront cost of having to purchse 45 squares or large number of shoes, with the risk that they will not sell.

+1. Totally agree. They got there before you to wait in line also.
