Your thoughts ? What could have caused this ?

 


The likely cause is not using a shoe horn when putting on the shoes, which crushes the heel whenever you put them on.

Did you solve the mystery?

no, still a mystery
there's a 2% "ebay bucks" rebate... but that can't be it

and... if you can buy it online through ebay... why wouldn't you be able to buy online from the retailer?
no need to pay over the actual price

wtf...
i see $400 gift card selling for $415... $250 gc selling for $258 ... etc.
i don't get it

is there some sort of scam? some way of paying less that i don't know about?
or are these people just really stupid and get caught up in the bidding war?

eBay bucks, big crumbs, credit card points, etc... On a $258 purchase, saving on cashback is about $15 combining these programs. Which means less than $250.

This belt will mainly be worn with jeans and either a polo or dress shirt, and maybe occasionally a t-shirt.


I just received a belt from ebay seller orionleather. Highly recommends them. I've owned both Corter and Tanner. You can get the same quality for half or third of the price from orion.

Hey everyone, I'm going to my girlfriend's temple for Rosh Hashanah services tomorrow night, and since I am not Jewish and have never been to such services, I am unsure what shoes I should wear. I've read online that a person should be well dressed, but some websites say not too formally. I am going to wear a charcoal suit, a white button down, and a light blue tie. Should I wear black cap toes or burgundy semi-brogue medallion tips? Any input is much appreciated. Thanks!

Cap toes are less ostentatious. Jewish people tend to dress very conservatively. Go with the safe bet.

Are Charles Tyrwhitt casual shirts short enough to go untucked?

Any opinions?

I've noticed this happens fairly regularly-finding a really nice piece of outerwear with either no label or with a maker you can't track down on the web because they went out of business long ago. I've bought a number of high quality items like this and been really pleased with them. If it's a great piece and thrift store cheap,snatch it up!

Quick question. I'm usually on the SW&D side of things, but have interviews coming up (financial sector). I have a dark navy blue suit and am currently trying to pick between dark brown park avenues and fifth avenues as an interview shoe. I felt that as I'll likely be picking up some black park avenues in the near future, it would be nice to have the fifth avenues as a dark brown captoe, but was curious as to if you guys felt this was interview appropriate. I know this kind of question has been beaten to death, but opinions would be appreciated.

I'm looking for a relatively sleek dressy boot in medium-to-dark brown with a rubber sole (Dainite would be nice, lugs not so nice) for ideally under $500 (I could pay more if it's absolutely perfect...), but I can't for the life of me find one. I'm open to brogueing, wingtips, cap toes, whatever. Suggestions, or is this a lost cause? If the latter, is there something that comes close to what I've described?

 I received these shoes today. There are some ripples at the back of the shoes and the back of the shoe is quite soft instead of being hard.  The result of the softness of the heel portion is that though the shoes fits in all area including the ball it is quite loose in at the lip area so it always feels as if its slipping.  Your thoughts ? What could have caused this ? Best regards      

My guess is the previous owner not using a shoe horn when putting them on.
