    Id be complaining and asking for them to be either paying you a sum to keep them i.e half or 3/4 of what you paid or for them to pay your return shipping with a full refund.

    If you have already given positive feedback open a paypal dispute. Thats very poor form from the seller

    I'll be doing that, I just want to confirm absolutely that they're not shell. I'm sure they're not, but I want an expert opinion.

    Hi Mate this is 100% calf. I own few pairs of shell cordovan and I can see difference between calf and cordovan form miles.
    And Shell Cordovan Vintage Florsheim Imperial is a "long Wing" not a wingtip (this pair is wingtip).
    Just have a closer look at my Florsheim DB cordovan.

    hey guys, would any of you might be interested in buying some rarely worn tan brogue carmina's in the rain last?

    bought some recently and foolishy the width is not suitable for me and i'm not sure if it will stretch with wear.

    They are a UK 8

    EDIT: or i may consider going to a cobbler and getting it stretched in width. anyone had experience with this?

    Thanks for leaving it for me:)

    I don't mind the peaked lapels as something a bit different. Shoulders are always impossible for me in RTW, and this was pretty close. Otherwise the jacket is just about a perfect fit for me, and won't need any alterations. That added to the attraction of the sale price for me.

    Melbourne members can you recomend a good (cheap) eat in the city for dinner. Wife is there for work and would like to find a decent meal without breaking the bank.

    +39 on Little Bourke near hardware lane do a great pizza or pasta if you're for italian food. It's not shanghai dumplings cheap but it's certainly not fine dining either (unless you get the lobster and cavier pizza they serve)

    Honestly the place I eat dinner at in the city most often is Mrs Parmas because I love the local beer options.

    They're not shell. Sorry for the hassle you're going to endure now mate!

    As for Melbourne dining options, there are so many. I'd second +39 on Little Bourke, as well.

    Hu Tong on Market Ln is delicious, except that the price can add up because although dumplings don't cost much, you end up ordering more. Movida Next Door is nice, but the ordering too much can become an issue. Unfortunately, if she's dining alone, tapas or shared plates can be complicated, though I've seen many an Anglo-Saxan diner at Asian restaurants eating from a whole plate, though the food is ideally meant to be shared.

    Waiter's Club makes a mean pasta, though the decor isn't the best.

    Haha, wow - pure coincidence on my end. I went there last November and enjoyed it. Hadn't heard of the Asmonti Chronicles until just now.
