Alden Black Cordovan Cap Toe Balmorals on Plaza Last Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Now here is some pics:

(Left to Right)

Alden Hampton Last 9015 in Color 8; Alden Plaza Last Black Cordovan Cap Toes; Carmina Rain Last Full Brogues in Saddle Cordovan; Allen Edmond's 5 Last Strands in Brown Cordovan:















Here is a pic of the flaw.  Ed said that he felt like the horse had a scar in his hide.....it is small and barely noticeable.  I have had firsts look worse than this.

Nice bal collection. I think the dark brown shell Strand is probably AE's best shoe.

You're probably right. To begin with, I wouldn't buy firsts or seconds to turn around and sell. I don't have the time. If I snagged that make up in my size and there appeared to be no issues, I'd keep for sure!

Bk,
Great looking longwings. The light edge frames the shell so well.

Kind words, indeed.

Thanks gents.

More importantly, did you see the size of the hooves on the pup?

Always room for more shoe + dog pics.

Nice that you aren't accepting returns on the factory seconds you purchased for ~$400. However, I really do appreciate the opportunity to "inspect each picture carefully" prior to purchase, especially as you don't accept returns (unlike TSM). They are seconds for a reason, and that reason might not be immediately clear from looking at your pictures. A reasonable listing might include some photos taken in direct sunlight, giving the potential buyer the chance to see the natural characteristics of the shell.

Also, I take it your listing should read "shade" instead of "shape" when discussing the color? Yeez, I'd have thought you would at least try to make the listing appealing, especially considering you're trying to flog these off for a ~300% profit.

Will sell you some for $1500. (They are firsts, so a reasonable premium appliesnoreturnstho.)

Sounds like a deal. I will put a signed, blank check in the mail asap - I trust you will fill it out for the correct amount?

Thank you for pointing out the error on my listing. I will correct the word "shape". As for the pictures, I tried to take plenty of pictures to show the condition of the shoes . If you have doubt, ask for more pictures or not to bid on the auction.

Thank you. I honestly doubt that they will sell. Just wanted to set the price high to attract some views in a good way. But it seems like some people are hating it.
