Alan Flusser's bespoke shoes are being auctioned off on ebay -- does he need money?

Clues: "a reasonably high profile men's clothing designer and author in NYC" and the initials on the trees to one pair "AJF"...

Henry Maxwell and Poulsen Skone:

They're too dressy to wear with sweatpants and a scarf.

that's crazy. i wonder how high those auctions will go (and what the reserve price is set to).

i'd throw down for a pair of AJF's shoes if my feet were a bit smaller.
i'd need to buy one of those "if we traded shoes..." tee shirts, too

The auctioneer is apparently selling some of his own shoes inc EG and Alden in slightly larger sizes.

Those N&L butterfly loafers are still available from them in RTW, Cleverley as well (probably both Crockett). EG used to make them (probably for Poulsen Skone back in the day) as the Tewkesbury. They inspired my bespoke order. I have EG's RTW version of the two-eyelet suede derby being auctioned, made for Poulsen Skone as the Tudor on the 32 last, which closely resembles the toe shape on the shoes being auctioned. Fellow shoe geeks will recognize that shoe as the predecessor to the Kingsway.

I don't know how high the auction will go but I can't imagine there are screaming Alan Flusser groupies rushing to buy his relics. Nice shoes, though. Although the Maxwells look a bit crude next to the Poulsen Skones -- which are definitely from the glory days when George Cleverley himself as well as his acolytes Glasgow and Carnera were still making bespoke shoes at Poulsen Skone.

What does the 32 last look like?

Similar to the 202, which, I believe, it preceded, but shorter so that one's foot occupied more of the length and toe of the shoe. A handsome round-toe last. It had a slightly squared analog, the 33.

If only this was a live auction...
I'd love to see those AJF groupies rushing to buy his relics.

It would be the "Savile Row Protest" of mass mobs.

It definitely will be interesting to see how high the prices get, especially given that Flusser's been "outed." (You'd think releasing his name would be a selling point, though...but I guess those Ferragamo for Michael Jordan shoes didn't do so well, either).

Battistoni cordovan boots. I had heard EG made Battistoni, but these sure as hell don't look like EG.
