I'm not one to shy away from used shoes generally, but this grosses me out a little. Is it evident that the previous owner went sock-less in this? It's a half-size too big for me anyway, but otherwise I'm surprised people go for used "barefoot" shoes that were really used without socks. That first line of contact rule, but for athletic footwear especially!

Exactly that reason - that label with the text only appears on the heavy silk ties, the woven ones. The whimsical printed twills only bear the horse and carraige logo.
+1 I found three recently (never found any before), but it's quite rare to come across a good fake, and usually it's easy to tell them apart. For the printed ties, first check is label (no Hermes - Paris under horse&carriage), then loop of thread, then twill, then lining, then folds. Even if everything else is right, the folds are where you can see the quality or not.
Oh, and Spoo,
P.S. I found a PRL Made in Italy (Corneliani?) blue+white striped seersucker suit 40R at greater than thrift prices, at $38. Can proxy, or if you think I should kop it, let me know.
EDIT: Seersucker is a 3-button single-vented, I think
