Hey Fellas, thinking about listing My #8, captoe boots frm JCrew... Size 12d, Thinking 11.5d might fit a little better. No issues worn 4 times. Thinking 500.00 conus... Let me know your thoughts, or Interested. Shoebags and box...... Pair in the center
what he paid is irrelevant. if J. Crew accidentally rang them up for $1 would you say $100 is a shit deal for them now?
while I completely agree with you that what he, or anyone, initially paid for something they want to resell is irrelevant, based on this guys attitude in this thread I'd be reluctant to give him even a dollar for these.
The boots retail for 665.00, first quality for 500.00 is not a shit deal. Also I said thinking... meaning I am open to offers... But yet, if you thought I paid retail for something then you would be like great deal for 500.00. Also if there ever is an issue with the boots Jcrew will exchange them. So take your shit deal and shove it up your ass..... Thank you.
WAit, wAiT WAIT, are these oN BARRIER LAst?
if so i would like to give you $800!
^ Is that 3PM Eastern? And don't get him started on handjobs - this is the guy, after all, that jumped on to this thread with the wonderful, unprompted diatribe about being reprimanded at work for making comments about "queers" (and some of his best friends are gay...)
To Alden Shells, is E fitting the widest in regular stock? Which last is most generous?
It depends on the model shoe. There are some on the Barrie last that are available in EE and EEE sizes. When I was working to get my own size down, I ordered and received a Color #8 LWB in a 9EEE from Shoemart. It was enormous compared to a 9.5e. Same length, but very voluminous. My guess is that Alden makes EE and EEE widths available in the more common cordovan and calf models. If you have exceptionally wide feet, you might try the Truebalance last as that is the roomiest of the Alden models. Good luck with your search and welcome.
I'm sorry but in zazaza's defense: (a) this is the alden thread, not the B&S forum and (b) if you want to sell a pair of Aldens, it's kind of ridiculous to post about the exact price for a half-off deal you wrangled from a retailer, wear them, and then a month later post them for sale at a far higher price.
