I'm disappointed by the lack of bananas in that auction.

These aren't new, but look to be in very good shape. A good looking shoe at a good price. Someone please buy them so I don't.

these are not brand new tried on once as the seller claims.

these have been worn at least 2-3 times and then the soles sanded down and touched up

Probably unclaimed or rejected bespoke. Cleverley had some in its winter sale in January, still quite expensive. Someone might put a deposit down and then never claim the items (Charvet had a binful of monogrammed shirts in its winter sale last year that the buyer had never deigned to pick up), or might decide the finished article didn't work for him. Alternately, they could be shoes purchased and simply never worn, until the owner leaves this mortal coil and they end up on the bay.

definitely not worth the opening bid, given that they're most likely rejected bespoke/custom shoes. most of that "$3,000" value is in the fact they're bespoke. Since the person they're made for is not the ebay bidder, they're not likely to fit better than RTW, and more likely to fit worse than RTW - especially when one considers that people with "RTW acceptable" feet are less likely to go the bespoke route. Do you want to buy a shoe that is designed to accomodate someone with an unusual foot feature?

Even more pointedly, would you take that risk at a price significantly above the typical EG sale or JL sale price?

I think one should treat these as hypothetical EG seconds - in that case, the fair ebay market price would be what those sell for. which is at least a couple hundred below the opening bid. Even then, I would go for EG or JL seconds before these.

These ain't new, but probably only worn once or maybe store returns and a good price for classic, well made shoes.

Sartoriale is just one of those Ebay sellers with very high prices.

He either gets his price or keeps relisting the item.

Check out the prices that this seller med-usf charges for his shoes!

The prices are amazingly high for what he's selling, but he runs them over and over.

It's just an Ebay seller strategy. It reminds me of the seller baronofpalmbeach. Many will remember him. His start prices are very high but he is willing to keep relisting.

For all I know, this strategy might yield better results for a seller than a fair or low starting price. A Harris or vman might have an opinion on that.

They are Bentons, aka Crockett Jones Belgraves on a 337. If I was a 12 I would probably buy them. I've bought RLPL EGs from this seller before, he didn't know what they were. edit: and they are gone! thanks for playing

The same seller is selling shoes in other auctions with a cop, an Indian chief, a sailor and a leather man.
