I thought we were pretty far apart but judging by those label it appears I may have found my competition.

Distance is relative to the miles one is willing to drive to a thrift store

The gift exchange PMs have been/are being sent out!

If you can PLEASE update your profile to reflect your sizes. You can also use your profile to add in anything in particular you want. It will really help out the person that is shopping for you!

Good luck and happy hunting!

Read as much of this thread (and the older archived one) as you can. 2) download the eBay app, and use the search function, refine the field of return to "sold" items only.

 

But if you keep popping in to say, "Is this any good" people will get tired of it. it's okay to do that every once in a while once you've proved you know your shit, but just using the thread as a way to figure out how to make money, that's kind of a no-no.

 

Now, if you aren't worried about eBay, and you are just buying for yourself, I'd say buy what you like and what fits. don't worry about whether or not we like it. If you want to know you are getting quality, stick to the well-known English (Churches, Crockett & Jones, Alfred Sargent, Edward Green), Italian (Bunches), and American (Alden, Allen Edmonds, Rancourt, maybe Footjoy and Hanover's older stuff) makers. 

 

If you are trying to figure our what is in style, I'd say stick to the classics. Longwings, Split toes, Cap toes, Wingtips, Brogues, Pennies, Tassel Apron Toes, Drivers. Those never go out of style. Better yet, go to the high end stores and see what they are selling both in terms of brands and styles. Go to Brooks Brothers, Allen Edmonds, Alden if you have one available to you, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue.

What a well stated opinion. I completely agree, especially about the classic styles and the brands.

On a pair of Brooks Brother England made shoes. Looks somewhat similar to church's but definitely not identical and I'm not finding anything to help clear it up.
