EDIT: I roll my ties and put them in those bags. Then they go in a 6x3x3 uline box. I have some 6x4x4 boxes that can fit 3 or so ties if someone buys more than one.

Thanks for the suggestion. I might give these a try.

Interesting. I've always felt it would be better to put ties in a box to help protect it better, but it's clearly been working for you. We'll see. I'm always open to trying new things to improve my current process.

Thank you, that really is an interesting read.

6x6 ziplocs also work for rolled ties.

Okay, hivemind, I have another shoe mystery. (Thanks to those who weighed in on the maker of those LL Bean boots. I'm going to have to stick with "Bean", given limited info.)

These Vasque Skywalks have markings unlike any I've seen on similar models on teh Bay. Can anyone tell me what dang size they are?



I thought maybe the "95" indicated a 9.5, but that's my size and these are much too tight on me. I guess they could be women's size 11, but that's not what the numbers actually say. Any clues?

Check the bottom of the insole, some Vasque models have the size on those... I'd guess 11 Narrow. If they seem to short to be a men's 11, could be women's.

PSA folks... I just got this email, which somehow made it through my spam filter. Note that this is SPAM. Do not click on the links in the email if you get it.

Only reason I didn't was I don't have a paypal debit or credit card so it didn't make any sense

Question for the gurus and big-timers:

Where are we on the issue of buyers who ask to ship to a different address? I know I have seen it on here before but searches were not turning up a definitive answer.

Item is a NWT Paul Stuart tie that sold for $50. Seller has 36 feedback and messaged me seven minutes after payment, asking to ship to a new address. Both addresses are in PA in relative proximity to one another.

Go ahead with the sale? Decline the sale and cancel? What is the consensus, guys?

Thank you!

I only ship to the address supplied by eBay. Otherwise, you void buyer/ seller protections.

It seems like this question has to have been asked here before, but here goes. Is there any way, besides eyeballing, to determine what last a pair of Aldens is built on? I'm selling a pair that were "made expressly for" a local store, and a potential buyer is asking if they're on the Barrie last. Damned if I know. Except for color, they look identical to the suede "Indy shoes" the same store sells, which I assume makes it the "trubalance" last. But is there any way to tell from the numbers printed inside? Here's the shoe:

I recently emailed Alden with a special order shoe model
Number and they emailed me back the next day with all the info including the last
