Thanks eddievddr10, I for one have no problem with it...other than the fact none were in my size. Such a grand gesture to offer them here first! cheers.gif

It's not like you weren't making a healthy profit, even at the prices you offered. When I make something available in this thread and someone who is in here on the regular messages me I'm usually letting it go at or close to my cost, not +200%.

enough smack.gif. back to the scores.

Anyone had a good way to remove security tags from ties? This one has one on each side. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Needs some rehabbing though, covered in cat fur and fairly pilled. Are the dolomite jackets made with a different blend? The ladies duffle feels like a pea coat material and is heavy wheras this one is lighter and is almost like fleece.

Unfortunately... all four had initials on the pocket... but not too bad, and the pocket should be removable if the initials aren't:

and check out what was in one of them:

All four are size 15 3/4 us, 40 italian, but measure more like a 15.25ish neck.... I think a few of you might be that size ^^; Downside is - all four are french cuff, and all four have SOME fold-of-the-french-cuff wear. That said, that wear isn't really unexpected with FC shirts, and not obvious when worn. The shirts are available, but I'm keeping those collar stays for my ONE Kiton shirt that can use them!

My sense is, there is, should be, a special-occasion exemption, and this qualifies. Somewhat like pornography in that you know it when you see it. In a perfect world, maybe you'd do a link to some other place, but not worth worrying about unless or until abuse becomes a problem. I managed to control myself and not order a pair, even though they are lovely and in my size. I won't have to worry about money, anyway, after my upcoming Reno trip. I own that town.

Crockett & Jones. Different pair than I saw before, same price. Any interest?

Honestly I came to brag and my partner had no intention of selling them here especially at this price my inbox was bombarded and I decided to talk to my partner and convince him to let me sell some here for one day, which i did at a price that can satisfy my partner when about a year ago I got shell polo shoes I literally made a very small profit but I wanted to hook up the guys here instead of ebay

I was one who bought a pair off Eddie and I really appreciate the price. I've been looking for pebble grain boots for a while now and finally settled on BB's pebble grain chukkas, which I was going to purchase at the after Christmas sale. From Eddie I got boots I actually like more and a better price. His mark up was over 200%, but who cares. He took a big gamble buying such a large quantity and it paid off. I still got a good deal. Read other threads on SF and guys are constantly wanting decent boots for $200-$300, but it's hard to find great quality at that price. I did and I'm stoked about it.

So, Eddie and anyone else who has a large score, please come here first. I don't want to discourage anyone from publicizing and offering solid offers here first. I want to encourage it.

Look, eddie is making a profit but everyone buying through him here is getting an insane deal on very, very nice shoes. To me, that fits perfectly within the spirit of this thread. Winners on all sides.

I actually think it's awesome that your willing to help out the members, not exactly at a loss to you, but not the maximum profit. It'll balance out though, this forum is like karma, you giveth, you recieveth. Maybe not in a form of a great deal, but perhaps in proxy, education or even company.


Anyways, I'm just saying, I noticed you didn't get crap for offering on the thread, while I recall DM7 doing the same thing and the whole thread jumped on his ass. I'm not referring to his consignor, but his own personal offer a couple months back, where he offered to proxy like recent Givenchy for around ~200-250. It's essentially the same value deal as yours.

I'm not attacking you just trying to show the thread how hypocritical they are sometimes. I know DM7 has some awesome stuff that he was willing to let go cheap, but got scared about the rage he'd receive.

Why would anyone have a problem with this?  Part of this thread is not only to look at the pretty pictures of other people's finds, but to have an opportunity to acquire some wanted items at below market value not available to the general public.
