When was the order placed for the Day Trippers? I'm surprised they got some new Ravello shells so quickly. I'm still not-so-patiently waiting on Epaulet's Ravello Brixton boot...

To be honest, I initially thought it was some kind of sick prank.

Beware of the seller frankthetank.0 on ebay. This person recently listed several pairs of aldens. I almost bit the bullet on these: 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alden-J-Crew-Cap-Toe-Cordovan-Boots-Size-10-5-BRAND-NEW-/150942119580?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D3278788584023642833%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26sd%3D150942119580%26

 
But after some searching i found the images the seller used were identical to ones from a completed listing from another seller. I messaged " frankthetank.0" about this and the response was simply "I bought it from them for my own site." Coupled with the fact the user just registered a week or so ago and has no feedback, i'd wager this is a scam. I could be wrong, but buyer beware. Not worth the risk to me.

odds of leffot having leftover stock to sell on the day tripper ?

Wasn't there two pre-orders, one that hasn't been produced yet?  If so, I'd think slim.

I saw the original listing from another seller who also had zero feedback and the listing disappeared and reappeared a few days later (with original bids wiped clean).  I e-mailed seller and was told they had another ebay store with 100s of transactions in their feedback.  I thought this was extremely suspect and decided not to pull the trigger.  Instead I coughed up the retail from J Crew knowing I could return it without any problem.

Hey, you never know.  Couldn't hurt to call them and ask.  Someone in your size could back out ect.
