    SOLD!

    Bit of a story here.

    Bought these new a few months. Unfortunately the stitching was coming loose on one of the lace flaps (?). So I took to a cobbler in Otley, UK who "works on Lobbs" and used to "refurbish Allen Edmonds"...

    In good hands, I thought.

    So the shoes were returned, but he also decided to "re enforce" the other 3 zones with additional stitching..

    They dont look terrible, it's only because I'm a completely anal twat, and dont like to wear anything with even the slightest blemish (I'm a "I know you cant really see it, but I KNOW it's there" kind of guy).

    So I'm moving them on to someone who really doesn't give a rats arse that their shoes has a bit of extra stitching that no-one can see anyway. They still look great, soles almost no wear, uppers minty with next to zero creasing. I think I only worse them once from memory. I also had steel toe plates installed.

    They are 10.5D on the Barrie. Retail for $515, buy 'em here for 285 shipped anywhere in the world via 3 day DHL express.

    DROP TO $245 SHIPPED

    $220 shipped globally - I must be mad.
