Grapevinehill on EBAY - RLPLs keep coming

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
When will it end? Seller Grapevinehill on Ebay has listed 150-200 RLPL (Edward Green) shoes and slippers in the last couple weeks. This stunner in 7.5D was just posted today -- which it were in my size.. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....00&rd=1

Are those the same last as the croc slippers that we were all guessing the price of? They look identical (except for the scales, of course).

Well, most RLPL shoes are made on the 89 last, and these appear to be, as well. The pattern is identical to the one used for the crocodile shoes posted earlier with the exception of the leather strips on the elastic gore. Great shoes, but it's a shame that they're in black.

Yeah, grapevinehill is moving a lot of products. I've never bought anything from him, but I do watch a lot of his auctions. His big thing, with regard to dress shoes, seems to be an endless supply of Mezlan's.... I think a couple of his C&J and italian made Polo's are incorrectly labeled as Edward Green (although the quoted retail prices look accurate). Not a big deal to me, because I can usually tell the difference from the pictures (C&J's are usually stitched aloft, while Green's are have a channeled sole), but somebody less informed might get a rude awakening later on.

Good lord. This auction for RLPL/EG black monkstraps (Troon model, although Raplh calls them Court) is already up to $560.00 with 5 days left. Somebody, or, rather, at least a couple of people, want them really badly.

Why are the RL shoes that retail for 700 selling for 560 whereas the Flusser EG, which retails for $1400 not getting the same ratios? Anyone who can help??

My guess is that most people, at least who i know, know about RLPL as being good quality, they know the name and what not but if you mentioned EG's or Grensons to them they would look at you like and ask are they any good? Even my grandmother knows about RLPL. My .02

Seems if grapevinehill has an endless supply, we should contact them and see if they want to do a bulk deal off ebay.

Any thoughts as to the maker of these shoes: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....39&rd=1 I seem to remeber a similary Jodphur boot on C&J's page. Thanks, Scott

Too bad most of the RLPL footwear he's listed are sandals...

A lot of makers have very similar boots, but these are almost certainly made by Crockett & Jones.

Do these boots run true to size, i.e., if I wear a 10D in Allen Edmonds, will a wear a 10D in these boots?

It's problematic that RLPL does not make any shoes in other than a D width, especially where I see Edward Green penny loafers for less than $200. I take a 9E in an Alden. Needed to vent. I wonder. If I bought a 9 1/2D, can anybody tell me an approximate width or whether this size would be equivalent in width to a 9E (because it's a half-size up?) I don't want to place an aggressive bid for the sole purpose of hurting my feet. The seller says he can't do this because the shoes are packed.Thanks (or maybe wait for Chris and Grenson). http://<a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/......hosting</a>. And are these shoes Edward Green (only $495 retail) or another make?

Stylestudent, I think you'll be OK. I am normally a 10.5E or EEE and a 11D fits fairly well, at least for the RLPL EGs that I have.

Drizzt, thanks for the advice. Last question. Do you think these are really Edward Green?
