    Thanks - I got the pair of Berkeley also listed. The seller will accept reasonable offers (see completed listings for examples) and I don't think I paid much more than the cost of the resole.

    My perfect size but I'm not sure what I would do with black tassel loafers [​IMG]

    Move to Atlanta and become an attorney? [​IMG]

    Bottom of the page - Trickers Lancaster 'Tramper' in a UK 11F for £140; these have been selling on eBay for £210 in the past week:

    So would these be like a 11.5D US? Or more like a 11.5 E?

    Well they're a UK F which equates to a US D, but the Trickers country lasts are reputed to be roomy (no personal experience) so perhaps one size up - 12D?

    more CJ suede shoes: http://cgi.ebay.com/BROOKS-BROTHERS-...item20b6ad0902 http://cgi.ebay.com/BROOKS-BROTHERS-...item20b6acfb85 http://cgi.ebay.com/BROOKS-BROTHERS-...item20b6ac32ab http://cgi.ebay.com/BROOKS-BROTHERS-...item1e6117114a
    Good seller, but I get frustrated dealing with him. I have asked multiple times how much he would charge for an item through SF (avoid eBay fees). He gives me a price that doesn't even reduce the cost as much as his eBay fees, and then he relists them on eBay the next day for less than the price he offered to sell them to me the day before. I can't fault him for wanting to maximize his profit, but he has lost multiple sales with me when he plays these games. Also, I know how much shoes cost at the BB clearance center, and he is making a great profit at the price I thought was fair.

    Aren't tricker widths on a numeric scale?
