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.

    For sale - '11G UK' Cheaney Imperial Collection tan/light brown leather plain-toe balmoral shoes with canvas uppers. Imperial Collection spade / beveled waist, with very cool samurai on the forefoot of the sole. Perfect for spring and summer - hell, I'd wear them year round. The leather surprised me, since I've only had EG, Lobb, C&J and G&G: Imperial Collection seems to be supple and very polish-able (I like my shoes, and a good polished shine).

    I truly wish that I wasn't selling these on. I've kept them while trying to find another pair in a different size, which I haven't. Cheaney says they were made for a client in limited run and further sizes/pairs unavailable. (I suspect a Japanese shop, hence the samurai who's pretty pimp in any culture, if you excuse the expression.)

    So the shoes are looking for a good home. Tempted to keep them just to look at, but maturity says the shoes should be enjoyed by being worn. Can take additional photos if requested.

    US$420 US$395 plus at-cost shipping for a quick sale (did I mention I was quoted ~US$700 to have another pair made?!). Taking the for sale sign down on these Saturday morning... US$395 and they're yours!

    They retailed for £395 which is ~$600...and to have another pair made would cost ~$700.

    I bought a pair of Cheaney Imperials recently and also surprised by the quality, particularly the leather _ they are not disgraced by comparison with Edward Green, John Lobb etc
    And yes retail is £395 or $600
