    Well, strictly speaking, the thread is "Cool shoes...", not "Great-BIN/Secret/Under-the-radar shoes...". And "cool" is subjective.

    Great, I'll post all the shoes I like on eBay. What exactly is cool/interesting about a pair of Black BB Shell Longwings?

    The post described exactly what you'd be finding. If you didn't find it interesting why did you click on it?

    Stop being such a whiny little dick!

    Are you guys seriously jumping down my throat over this? This thread is typically good BINs, mislabeled items, and legitimately interesting shoes (exotic leathers, top tier brands, etc.). I stand by my original criticism in that I don't think the BB Shell Longwings fit the bill.

    This isn't a busy or overloaded thread and doesn't need to be limited to exotic leathers. Or moderated. Plenty of room for the mundane that might be picked up at a good price.

    This.

    It is not like posts will get lost in the overabundance of information in this thread...

    When everyone thinks you're wrong, you usually are. Anyway, it's RJman's thread and he had occasionally objected to off topic crap being posted here, but the post you're bitching about doesn't fall into that category.

    Nice size 12 Alden for Brooks Brothers shell cordovan black wingtips. Only $100 right now.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT


    What is the point of this? Post something with a BIN, or at least post something that isn't labelled as shell.

    You're an immature little cock. He posted them because they had the potential to go for cheap.

    And click on the link again...

    Look at that, they went for $112! A pretty good deal for a nice pair of shoes.

    Near New Salvatore Ferragamo wingtip Firenze line (*) 8 D - BIN $80 - free shipping: http://cgi.ebay.com/320653749815


    (*) There is no consensus on quality of Firenze line, but believed to be somewhere between LO and Tramezza. See here for more info and make your own conclusion: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=189861


    Whoever got these - let me know if they don't end up working out!

    Wow. Was not expecting that. Thought it could have been a good not great deal for a size 12. Also shell was Not listed in the title so there was a good possibility they could fly under the radar. Raoul Duke don't be such a HYPOCRITE, below is a post from you from two weeks ago in the Cool Shoes, Paraphernalia & Desiderata - Part II for USED ALDEN BLACK SHELL CORDOVAN shoes with a bin of $250 and a reserve that wasn't met over $180. The Alden shells I posted sold for $112 and in my mind were in a lot better condition. So your post asking "What exactly is cool/interesting about a pair of Black BB Shell Longwings?" I would ask you the same. Ironic?

    Black Alden Shell Captoes 10.5 B/D:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=250758614500

    They are not marked as Shell, but there is a reserve. BIN is $250.

    Exactly, that was a BIN and the shell was unmarked. Did you not read anything I wrote? I'm trying to let this go, but you guys are beating a dead horse here.
