If you see any in 9.5E (or whatever that is in Zegna sizing), I am a buyer

The City Opera thrift store, as of last night, had ~ 6 Cleverlys. I am guessing they are about 9.5-10. I wear an 8 to 8.5 and they were big on me. They had markings, but not really a size marking as I would be familiar with. They are all used, obviously, and could use a polish. May have bben more used than some would prefer, but, were also under $50.00 the pair. They had brown suede, black suede, brown cap toes, and a black cap toe.

As a bonus, there were ~5 Turnbull and Asser shirts - I would say about 15.5 or 16 by 35. The sleeve length was fine for me, but the neck was too tight and I am a 16.5 x 35. There were an assortment of cuff styles and shirts were striped.

They are all D width.

Century got a boatload of Zegna Cuture shoes about 6 weeks ago. They were all $229 a pair. The shoes were all Ermenegildo Zegna Cuture XXX line but some had "Fatte a Mano" on the sole (like in Ed's second link) and some said "GoodYear High Performance" (like in Ed's first link). I actually bought the oxfords in the first link for myself. The leather is kind of weird on them as I was not able to polish them up properly. Moreover, as soon as applied some Colonil conditioner that came with the shoes one of the shoes developed some dark spots that I was not able to get rid of. I tried Saphir Renovateur, Saphir Creme surfine and rubbing alcohol buit the spots are still there. I was surprised as I expected easier time dealing with the leather from $700 retail shoe ( I saw exact same shoes in Neiman's on sale for $551).

Was at the NMLC store this weekend and saw this one pair of Platinum Maglis. They were marked at $420 but with additional discount I ended up paying approx $340. Almost passed them up because they were stacked in the 8.5 rack. I figured I would take them, check the price on the web (cheapest I saw was $402) and get fora members' opinion.

Yes they are no JLs or EGs but I think they are a nice pair and actually looks a little better in flesh:

I am interested in your thoughts. "Thumbs up and keep" or "down and return before the 30 day period lapses"?

Don't EGs always have the heel nails in groups of three?

Perhaps this deserves its own thread in the main forum.

I am not so familiar with the Platinums. The regular Maglis for $300+ I have seen are not so great. These look very nice and i like the styling. Others would surely say that for that price you could buy C&J but if you are happy with the fit and like them, then I say keep them.

I would so spend the 1000 bucks I don't have right now on these shoes if they were my size.

The exception is their shoes with all-leather heels. Like these:

I've seen a very similarly styled shoe by Zegna.

An ebay price of $1,000 for Vass is a tough pill to swallow. Lobb museums, Green's regularly go for a decent amount less. That being said, I'm not a hater and wish the seller well and hope the buyer enjoys them in good health. If the stars align as they should, I will be Vass shod by year end
