C&J for RL size 9.5 for $20 - they need a resole badly, but may be worth it for someone.
I pre-treated the "stains" with Clorox Oxi-Magix stain spray and while still wet sprinkled that with OxyClean powder and worked it in a bit. I then washed as normal and it is perfect. As to new or older, I would not know how to tell? As to the mystery of where he is gettng them, as someone else queried? They were in Borrelli packaging and any holes in the package were taped over with Borrelli tape leading me to believe the guy works at Borrelli, in all likelihood. How he obtained them, hot or cold, is for others to speculate about. At $40, these were an absolute steal. I bought two more for my little bro and two more for myself. At least with the ones I received already, you can't go wrong. And the shipping, very pleasantly unexpected.
Great news on all accounts... thank you for giving a detailed review. The old/new Borrelli is best evidenced by the "shoulder balls" and the hand stitching. Are they machine stitched everywhere? Also, overnight in the USA or EU?
C&J Handgrade UK 8
let us know how it goes.
Decent BIN on Marinella 100% Cashmere Tie

$10,000 Kiton shearling on sale for 70% off OBO
Someone remind me what the different "K." label means?
i dont think thats kiton, bud
Looks like a Kiton store went out of business... including some Kiton Alligator shoes (not impressed though, honestly)
you guys paid $30 shipping on the Borrellis?
1. I bought 3 and he combined them into one $30 charge
2. I know thats an actual charge because thats what I charge for international shipping, so I know its not inflated. Plus these come with the boxes, which makes it pretty bulky and heavy.
International shipping is extremely expensive =(
And spoo - you should have put that tie in the tie exchange!
If that thing is made by Kiton i picked up an absolute steal of a raincoat by the Barneys sale.. same label as the one in this picture only i paid $170 for it!
