post #114616 of 122416

Is anyone familiar with an eBay seller "timpower301"?  Wondering if he's legit or not.  He had a pair of cigar shell captoe boots in Grant last (new in box) that I noticed last night.  They were size 8.5E (which I usually wear D-width but I was still considering... haha) and they were reasonably priced at $800 with $50 shipping. 

 

He also has a pair of cigar chukkas up but way overpriced at $1,000 plus shipping.  He's located in Thailand which I recall seeing some scammer notifications recently from a Thailand seller

I will say though that the reverse chamois is a thicker leather and has a very pronounced smell that hits you throughout the day (in a good way)…and it reminds you that you have some dope Indys on!

 

Never thanked you for this. Thank you!

Know I haven't frequented the threat much recently, but my JGilbert Captoes on Commando finally made it out of the closet today.

And yes, I know the laces are too long.

I wouldn't risk it.
$1000, low feedback, overseas.... seem like a bad combo.
Alden sf runs cigar chukkas, give them a call.

Alden SF is not taking any more names for rare shell. they said their lists are too long as it is. Kathy at DC may be more accomodating.

This is the same guy - "dontuang" who got banned here for posting a classified with someone else's pictures. I searched the description of the boots from his eBay listing and found this classified from denimblog: http://www.denimblog.com/c/t/234237/alden-horween-cigar-shell-cordovan-captoe-boots-commando-sole-grant-last-8-5e

 

It has the exact same pictures. This guy is obviously a scammer. Looks like someone bought the boots as they now appear as a sold listing on eBay. Hope it wasn't someone on here who is getting scammed.

Ah, thanks. They've just aged nicely!

How much heel slippage is normal in an LHS? I have had mine for a while and I am not sure if I should continue to wear them to try and break them in, or just sell them and chalk it up to a bad fitting.
