What's the general quality of Paraboot shoes? I'd imagine that they're not up to Weston quality, but are they of higher quality than, say, Allen-Edmonds? Also, about size, is there any chance a Paraboot 8 would fit a foot that normally takes a US 9.5? I know Weston sizing is a bit wonky; any chance Paraboot is the same?

From what I've seen of Paraboot, I'd say they are equivalent to Alden - near or slightly above AE quality in general, and of similar 'sturdy' aesthetics.

I feel like kitonbrioni!!!

$1425 for a used sport coat! "Another overpriced Ebay deal"!

Granted it is an Oxxford, with a fabric mixture of super 200's and vicuna. First, I wonder how much Vicuna is in the blend? My guess is 5 or 10%. It has a single rear vent, and standard Oxxford Horn buttons. And there's no picture showing the number of sleeve buttons. It would have made it easier to guess weather this is an orphaned suit coat or not.

What do most of you think? Suit coat or sport coat? But still, $1425 for a used sport coat!!

Here it is:

I would think a "Preowned" 100% Cashmere Kiton or Brioni would merit a $1425 price before this Oxxford. What do you think?

And it's not even 100% Bijan!

rofl.

Why the f would someone pay 1400 bucks for that? Oxxford is usually semi-undervalued on eBay, not retardedly inflated..

Man, I'm not sure whether I should be disappointed or happy you don't wear a 9.5. You never post anything in my size, but then again, I can't seem to find anything decent myself, either.

Those look fairly nice, kinda an interesting wingtip design, wonder if they are older?
