I'm not the one selling them as something they're not. When someone on ebay sells something as something it isn't, I call it out. I didn't report you to ebay for this, which I could have -- and which would have been an extreme measure. It's not public, though -- would you rather I have done that and kept my opinion to myself? I suggested my correction on this forum, which is only fair as you frequent this forum, at least in part in order to raise interest in the stuff you are selling on ebay. If you are wrongly representing something you are selling, members of this forum who might have been induced to purchase it ought to know.
Ede & Ravenscroft have the quadruple warrants as robe makers to the royal family. Nothing to do with shoes. I have an E&R shirt, it has all four royal warrants on the label too. Doesn't mean it was made bespoke. It wasn't. Edward Green doesn't have a royal warrant and to my knowledge never did, so presence of royal warrants is irrelevant to this discussion anyway, your best judgment notwithstanding.
As to the lack of size, I have no idea. But maybe you didn't look in the right place or maybe it wore off -- the shoes look well used.
Those are not Edward Green and they are not bespoke. I stand by that.
If you want me to keep my opinions to myself, maybe you should ignore my posts and not use them to search for deals that you can flip to sell on ebay.
Shit like this is why I don't like posting anymore, in this thread or any other.
