Thank goodness I am not the only one that feels this way

Z...Beware our own AHarris. He will buy these, reidentify them correctly, and resell them on EBay for $600/pair

LOL, I saw those as soon as they were posted on ebay, and had a snipe bid on them long before they were posted in this thread. I'll cancel it though, since styleforum members are interested. And no I did not make the $600 offer.

Contrary to what you might think, I see 95% of the shoes in this thread before they are linked here. After 6yrs I've got shoe searching on ebay down to a fine art. I cannot recall ever purchasing something posted in this thread for resale, though posts here have occasionally stopped me from buying shoes for that purpose... If I find it first though, and it is cheap enough, it's fair game.

Ditto from me Andrew. Finding the Ebay gems is an art.

AP - got my Cheslands today. They, too, fit well in 7E. I'm worried about the 7000s, man...

Great news about the Cheslands, I'm looking at a pair in dark oak too.

If you're really worried shoot Nick at modernvintage an email an ask if he'll take a return. He's a stand-up guy and I'm sure he'll work with you. I think they're going to fit, but I also like my shoes to run on the snugger side. I ahte the feeling of floating inside my shoes.

Yeah, but I have a pair of brown shell cordovan Polo Darlton wingtips that I really like and wear a lot. I can't see a pair of BB wingtips replacing them.

I seem to be batting about 50% on ebay ties. About half are excellent and half are a disappointment. It means the ones I keep and wear may not be quite such a great deal, but I have gotten some nice ties that I wouldn't have paid retail for.

I've had much better luck with higher-end ties than less expensive ones. I've managed to avoid getting a single bum Charvet. But the Brooks ties are really hit-or-miss -- too many rejects from Marshalls and TJ Maxx. I've gotten several that have been picked or scratched, and have given up paying more than $8 or so for them.

Wow!! I'm not at all familiar with the brand or the fit, though. Interesting that his listing says free US shipping and shoe trees with BIN, but he doesn't list a BIN option. Think he's trying to arrange an off-ebay sale?

The box is labeled size 13 for Barneys, I'm thinking 12 is the EU size. Beautiful shoes.

I think Barney's in BH is carrying B&H shoes. If I remember correctly, they aren't retailing for much more than the price these are listed for. Am I right? The label sure rings a bell.

Good catch on the sizing! If I decide I want to bid, I'll email about the sizing first.
