Totally agree. "like new," to me, means that you bought them, maybe tried them on, and that's about it. Anything more and its been worn, and it is now used. Used once is still used.

They need to fix the color balance in those photos. I could not even begin to tell you what color those shoes actually are. Well, actually I probably could by comparing the upper against the edging (which is usually pretty consistent), but still.
These shoes are priced very decently. Those that consider this a grail model should buy these ASAP. The next run of these will be around 750, at least. The shoe trees are also included.
^ After posting my comment, I deleted because I have an Epaulet shoe listed that has some minor shop wear (but was sold as new). Worn on the streets is different though, and eBay/PayPal (like Amazon) will refund almost anything if a buyer complains now, so just be careful on the details.
I may be selling some cigar LHS soon and replacing them with color 8

Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. -- Rumi
blasphemy to bring it up in the thread, but if patience is not a virtue of yours, you could entertain an MTO Dundee from AE or possibly something from Carmina
other than that, I do not believe anyone is stocking cigar or whiskey. ebay is always your best bet at that point. I'll gladly buy through there IF NBIB or at a healthy discount
Here is a crazy question.. How do you guys stop buying Alden's. While I love Alden's I also love the deal. I just bought 4 pairs last month.
Tres bien reverse tobacco Indy , ptb natty on crepe, natty chukka jcrew, snuff suede Dover ... I have these plus jcrew 405, 404, 401.. Jcrew natty cap toe boot, jcrew cordovan cap toe boot, jcrew suede lwb, jcrew scotch grain lwb, jcrew snuff plain toe boot. Jcrew tobacco plain toe boot. Now I want to buy the need supply Indy and the leffot greenwhich... I seriously think I have a problem... How do you guys stop or contain yourself to pass on deals or say hey I won't wear those much. I make sure I rotate thru each pair as long as the weather doesn't affect anything.
unsubscribe from email lists. stop visiting this thread and ebay. put some miles on the shoes you have and enjoy them.
