1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have 2 pairs of brand new Caloleria Harris shoes from Barney's for sale, both size 9. Â One pair is a brogued oxford with medallion detailing in an antiqued chestnut brown, with a chiseled toe. The other pair is a double monkstrap captoe with some broguing detail in a beautiful, rich, red brown color. Â It is also a chisel toed shoe. Â (You can tell this is my favorite pair or the two). I am reasonably sure that both these shoes are built on the same last - they have a high instep and a slightly elongated - not unlike the Vass U-last, cosmetically. Pictures *will* follow, if not tomorrow, then on Tuesday. I don't know much about the brand, but there has been a prolonged discussion of the brand: Styleforum discussion about C. Harris shoes and there seems to be general agreement that these are well made shoes. Â There was no retail price stated on the shoes, but according to the thread discussing the shoes, they retail for just under $600. I am selling them for $120 apiece, shipped (within the United states). Â A small discount may be available for anyone who wishes to purchase both pairs. Â Price on second pair has changed due to new info. Please PM me. edited - price change. See below.

    Sorry for the late pics. You guys will have to wait another day. I'm in the middle of a symposium, so things are rather hectic.

    The pics are in. Â I've been recently informed that these were a more expensive and rare model of Harris shoes at Barneys. Â Furthermore, I've also been taking a hit on shipping charges. Â Therefore, the price of these shoes will therefore be $138, shipped. Â As noted, the shoes are a size 9 (marked size). The true color of the shoes is shown in the second picture. Â There is a rich, slightly reddish tint in the finish that doesn't show up particularly well in these pictures. Â As evidenced in the pictures, the shoes are in perfect, brand new, never worn condition - there are not even creases in the uppers from having been tried on. Â You may PM me if you have additional questions. Â However, please note that I've received a fair number of inquiries about these shoes, and they are priced to sell (retail is apparently above $650), so the first to Paypal me at [email protected] to the order of $138 will receive the shoes. Â Please PM me as well to inform me that you are purchasing, and I will make a post to the effect that the shoes have been purchased. Cheers all. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the interest. I am sorry about the confusion re. multiple buyer's yesterday. See what happens when you leave SF for just a few hours? All parties have been contracted. Those who did not get these shoes will have first dibs on the next pair of shoes of similar or better quality that I post for sale.

    A special apology is extended to those who those who paid me by paypal (refunds have obviously been issued).
