Glad these aren't my size. Interesting that people will pay $500+ for PL without the trees from GVH, yet these haven't sold. Is eBay just dead right now?

Here's what appears to be this shoe (except for shade of brown) in the Cleverley RTW catalog:

http://www.gjcleverley.co.uk/product.php?ProductId=67

The last time I talked to George Glasgow (maybe a year ago) these were selling for 300 GBP, or $600 US at today's exchange.
Why do you think that the Cleverley RTW may be better than C&J Handgrade quality? I'm happy with the Cleverley RTW I have, but it doesn't appear any better in quality than my Handgrades.

I don't know for sure that the Cleverley RTW are better in quality than C&J Handgrades, but it has been suggested by others here or on the London Lounge, I believe, that Cleverley may have a slightly higher standard of quality for the shoes they have C&J make for them in their RTW line than would normally be true for the Handgrades. We know that Cleverley, in many cases, produce the designs for C&J to make up, and, given their distinguished history particularly with respect to bespoke, it seems very unlikely that the C&J-made Cleverley RTWs would be of lower quality than that of C&J Handgrades. Hence the opinion "C&J Handgrade quality or better." I suppose this could be wrong, but I doubt it!

Guys, what did those black Tramezza wholecuts go for? I was watching with 32 minutes to go, then was called away.

I'll be shocked if the boots sell at $390.

You know, they might even be my size, but the scotch grain isn't doing it for me. At that price, they look too much like ordinary cap-toe bluchers for me.

I bought some cheaney's from ebay. The seller said:
==
"Marked 44 D which should be equal to a size 11 US. But they are also marked size 13? so please check measurement with a similar pair of dress shoes you own to ensure proper fit. Heel to toe outside 13 1/4" ~ Inside 12" Width outside 4.5" ~ Inside 4"
==

The shoes are actually marked:
Last 44/D Size 13

Looking at the inside measurement of 12 inches, I'm thinking this will never fit a size 13. In fact, I took my 11D AE drydens measure exactly the same on the inside.

So why are they marked 13?

I absolutely dislike those types of shoes. They're actually kind of disgusting, like a diseased wound.
