    Hi Guys,

    What are you opinions on this tricolour Oxford?

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    One colour too many perhaps?

    If I was to get rid of a colour, IMO I'd replace the dark brown cap with chestnut. But then perhaps you'd simply end up with yet another two tone shoe.

    Hope you are OK with it being here rather than B & S..... as it is not ready for sale

    Regards,

    Graham

    it may look good with jeans, actually.

    or they'll just end up looking like bowling shoes.

    I don't know if it's one color too many, or if that cap is just too dark. Either way, not my cup of tea.

    Not very interesting. Rather haphazard.

    I assume you aquired these C & Js at a heavily discounted price.

    There was a reason!

    ....... so you love it then!

    It's a good job I have a global market to fish in......



    Just for fun.... why not have a theoretical punt on the selling price I eventually get for these.


    PM me with your guesses and I will announce the winner in a "spread bet style"


    My range will be £ 129 - £ 134 (See! You have pushed my SP down already!)

    Regards,

    Graham

    I would pay $100 with the hope that I could make the entire shoe black. That notwithstanding, I wouldn't pay any amount for these shoes.

    I do think you'll find a buyer for these in the $250-$300 range with the right marketing message ("unique, high quality for the discerning eye...") though it might take a while.
