Yep, picture was taken in direct sunlight. The sun makes a huge difference. It’s funny when I wear these in the office they don’t look anything like that. I’ve put a good amount of miles on these since I tend to go for walks during lunch. I’m interested to see how they look in a year if I keep wearing them frequently. I store them in the closet to avoid any accelerated fading.

Thanks in advance for your replies. 

 

They still have a couple pairs of the Cigar cap toe bluchers on Aberdeen, if that interests you. The color 8 wingtip boot on Barrie with commando sole and antique edging that @zennypoo mentioned...is indeed going to happen, according to what Kathy told me today.

He's doing a fantastic job finishing the edge trim on these conversions. I wonder what he uses on them as the finish product, makes me want to change the edge trim on my AE Patriot loafers.

Reverse welt on the WT boot?

Alden of Madison today (May 13) announced they have a balmoral cap toe in color 8 in stock.  There is no brogueing on the toe - it is a plain cap - but it is a balmoral and a great looking shoe.  It is on the Hampton last, not plaza.

 

For plaza last shoes, contact Yenni at brick + mortar.  I am not aware of her having a shoe like that in the queue, but it cannot hurt to suggest.

I think they are absolutely stunning but I'm curious to hear if you guys think they are a good, versatile first pair. I haven't worn them yet because I keep asking myself "is this the right pair?" - which under normal circumstance wouldn't be a question if not for the price, which is more than I've ever paid for shoes before.

Great choice.  Traditionally, balmoral is considered to be more dressy than than the derby so if you are getting to wear with suits, the balmoral is more for suits.  This kind of distinction is breaking down and I would say whichever style you like better is what you should choose.  Put them on and enjoy them.

Has anyone ever been asked to send two different paypal invoices when selling a pair of shoes?

They're expensive - rare shell - so I understand the request from the aspect of two invoices allows for you to more easily pay with two different methods/cards. But it seems like it would make it easier for you to contest a payment and screw over a buyer, right? You could claim you mistakenly paid twice?

I don't have a lot of experience with selling and I have no idea what the process is when a buyer fraudulently requests a refund. I feel like I've heard that as a seller you are pretty much guaranteed to lose, though. Anyone have thoughts?

The buyer is a SF user with not a lot of posting history but he has the right kind of posting history (the right threads for what he's buying, basically) and seems totally normal.

I have been thinking to purchase a pair of #8 plain toe boot, but I got a pair of unlined #8 ptb already.

Both of them are in barrie last.

Do you guys think it is redundant ?
