    How do their sweaters fit? True to size or slim?

    Thanks RJ.

    I bought recently from the seller (pure_luxuryculture) with lots of Ettinger a Bamford and Sons cashmere v-neck. There are few more available
    Bamford & Sons Woodman Cardigan Camel L
    BAMFORD WoodmanV Neck Sweater/ Cream

    Bamford have absurd retail prices, so called 'British Cucinelli', but the cashmere sweaters are very nice ,and for under 100 quid they seem good value. I'm tempted a bit now by a Bamford cord jacket (on B&S) or a grey cashmere double breasted w/ peak lapels. What are your opinions about Bamford? Made in Italy by whom?

    Alexander McQueen loafers. The opening bid is $1999.99. The seller is taking offers but, as the seller cautions, please be realistic. After all, he paid $5000 for the shoes.

    At that price they better come cat piss equipped. Also, must have been an awfully long runway to have that kind of wear.

    I like it that the Seller is keeping it real. Couldn't be bothered to clean and polish.

    For some reason I can't copy pictures from the listing.

    But look at the pictures in the link.

    If those obvious scuffs ( he says "distressed", but I see scuffed crap ) and that heel ( Cuban? ) are not worth a $2,000 opening bid, what is?

    So you see, Fuuma's cat piss, cracked leather Berlutis were well worth the $500 or whatever[​IMG] [​IMG]

    PS: From the listing copy, "Please look at the heel , Very unique shape" No shit Sherlock[​IMG]

    I'm going to study his business model:

    Buy shoes for $5,000. Get $5,000 worth of use out of them. Sell for $1,900. Profit.
