I'd happily take them if they weren't an F width...I have never heard of that before?!?

 

Edit: F for C&J can sometimes equal a D in normal shoes after a quick google. Is that right?

Edit to edit: I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Yes, UK sizing is smaller than US, about 1/2 size or so if I recall, (so probably @ a 12.5 US), widths are appx. 2 sizes larger, so a UK F = US D.

 

 

Edit: Also, C&J's should be quite flippable.....

Thanks for the education. I am constantly learning here.

Yes but get some shoe trees in them along with a healthy coat of conditioner with some good pictures you're $$$, or just send them to me and I'll make sure they flip stirpot.gif

 

BUT seriously, how do you a) buy them without knowing if they are flippable or b) even know what they are if you dont know they will flip.

I vote we start an "Is it flippable?" thread. It's become tiresome here.

My belief is that anything is flippable as long as you don't spend too much. I am a noob here so I just soak it all in and lurk. People need to do research BEFORE buying and its all a  learning experience.

Make sure to not gravitate towards only the green listings, focus on the red listings too as they tell the full story.

Given the conversation yesterday about "X made for Y" sport coats, I wasn't sure about the shoes. I know that C&J is a good brand, but otherwise am a n00b.

I bought the shoes because I knew I could either sell them or return them for store credit. I do have the EBay app on my phone, but that doesn't always tell the whole story.

Before the thread blows up....a 'rare' Brioni to compliment my 'rare' Brioni from yesterday. This one is actually growing on me the more I look at the pictures.

 

Again....what would you call this pattern? Right now I have "Dashed Stripe" or would "Salt & Pepper" be better?

Found another Borrelli, MOP buttons so big I could hardly fit them through the button holes.
