I will sell mine for $2k if anyone wants a 10B that badly.

There seems to be a lot of crazy lately. Rare Alden shell shoes/boots are starting to (in a relative way) remind me of what's happening in the San Francisco real estate market!

Wore mine today too. Love these Frans Saddles. They always get compliments. Such a good makeup.

Just a quick note, gotten a few messages regarding the Ravello and Cigar LWBs on eBay. Photos being used are mine but I sold both pairs to users here. That said if you need more photos of either shoe search B&S to see the closed listing which have more photos not shown on eBay.

Did you sell them on here for less than retail and then have the buyer turn around and flip them?

I will always try and sell my stuff here before I go to ebay. Always at a sizeable discount to what I would ask for on ebay because of the value I receive from the community here, however if people are doing what I suggest above, all bets are off.

here are @stevent's longwings being resold by someone on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-CIGAR-shell-cordovan-Longwings-US-10D-/181691705799?

I remember looking at that listing wondering why these were still available on B&S a few weeks back (for 650 or something). Surprised they now show up on ebay for a couple hundred more smile.gif


EDIT - wow. the above post came up seconds before mine!

edit - selling prices on listings. I didn't list on eBay / Grailed as it usually results in endless $200 offers and crazy messages. Both buyers wanted shoes for themselves and they didn't fit. That said it should be noted that the cigar pair has mis-aligned flaps that is not mentioned in eBay listing.

Don't have any problem with people buying to flip neither, if they got shoe at price I sold them, they are free to do whatever they want with the pair. Just posted as I got messages asking to buy outside of eBay but they aren't mine to sell. Should be noted that eBay has 10% fee on selling price and 10% fee on shipping fee in addition to 2-4% in PayPal fees.

I'd been wanting a black or Color 8 saddle for a while.  While these are a bit outside the norm, they were hard to resist at half price: http://needsupply.com/mens/brands/alden/freeman-saddle-shoe.html.

JUST A NOTE TO ALL: APPARENTALLY ALL WHISKEY, RAVELLO, AND CIGAR OFFERINGS ARE DRIED UP AND HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS.

 

now that that's out of the way, I can state that the above was the answer I received today when I called into Sherman Brothers in Phila    :paranoia: 

 

I didn't care enough to let him know of my whiskey WTB that came in last week,. nor the constant ravello and whiskey dropping left and right recently.

Hi guys.

 

There's a listing up for a pair of cigar chukka's by a new user, that just happened to create their account in late Feb. I don't like to accuse anyone without any proof but something just doesn't sit right about the listing. The person's name reminds me of this other SF account "Desiree" that I believe was banned before. He also only has 2 posts, so just a heads up. I know a majority of people who deal with new users ask for feedback from another reputable site but some don't. So yeah..

Where is the best place to purchase VSC? Possibly Saphir products too? In the US.
