    Oops! I guess not. (Just looked it up and ATLjon's is jonhross83 on eBay)
    I know I clicked on something from that seller in the last day or so, I thought it was a link from one of Jon's threads. I'll see if I can find it in my history.

    Lots of Ralph Lauren Purple Label shoes on DSW, though not yet at amazing price

    Denver (made in Italy) (I want these in 9.5!!!)
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...763&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...036&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036

    Lindrick on vibram instead of dainite sole, and some kind of grain instead of cordovan, so got to be old stock
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+lauren+collection+lindrick+wingtip+boot?prodId=286895

    Dalvin (Another Made in Italy Purple Lable stuff)
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...036&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036

    Made by England but doesn't look like goodyear (though does look like purple label stuff), any idea who this might be?
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...036&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036

    Another made by Italy
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...036&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036

    The rest in Ralph Lauren stuff DSW are not necessarily purple label though (a are not, such as these)
    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...036&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036

    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/ralph+laure...295&activeCats=dsw10cat130006,dsw12cat1780036

    oh, also don't miss a nice loafer (looks like Edward Green to me)

    Tried on some Santonis at the DSW recently. Size 7 was noticeably too big and I am normally a 8/8.5

    well, if size 7 is too big then t's UK sizing, I would imagine they list US sizing on their website though

    I don't know if they are US sized in Us market, here they are always UK sized, IME their shoes are bigger around half size comparing to common English brands.

    The vast majority of the Euro sized Santonis also have an "F" either before of after the size number (sometimes several spaces away). You cannot ever trust a store to properly size the shoes they sell. If they dont make 'em, they usually do not know and make an educated guess. Barneys calls the B&V shoes 1 size lower than U.S. Not even close, they are 1.75 lower. My 7's are between an 8.5 and 9.

    This isn't really UK sizing. It is "Italian sizing". UK is usually either 1/2 to 1 size different. Italian sizing is between 1.5 and 2 different.
