    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Aside from his incessant posting of his opinion that Vintage shoes are superior to most of what's available today (I mean, Jeez... guy sounds like my great-great grandfather..."In my day we walked 10 miles to school in the snow, sonny!"), I have no problem with him. :smarmy:

    He says $5200 in the title and $4200 in the item description. Frankly, I don't believe a 100% wool sport coat from Zegna would sell for more than $1500 brand new. These "estimates" have become a complete joke and it is frightening to think that some people actually believe that, although hopefully no one here.

    Hard to tell as one has trees in and the other doesn't. However, creasing near the toe box is pretty pronounced in the first pair and not visible at all in the active auction. It also appears that the second auction's shoes have lasted trees.

    The guy in Quebec, fashionshow2007, is a reseller, so it's highly likely they are the same. He has also been kicked off of SF for shady dealings under the name badonk.

    That guy is a reseller. Buys at eBay and resells for 5+ times the price. So no closet involved. People who sold to him had some complaints that he was not nice to do business with.
    Infamous for recently selling a Palm Beach tweed suit over 1200 which surprised folks.
