    This is a nice, antique alligator bag. Very nice for its age.

    I'm sure that was a badass bag back in the day, but old stuff like this bag kind of creep me out.

    Not sure if this is the right thread - I purchased two cashmere cardigans from this seller last week, and they're phenomenal - very well made (including turnback cuffs) and excellent quality thick cashmere. If you're a small size grab yourself a bargain - these are the equal of some I've seen sold for £250; http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/kingcraigfabrics/

    LK should get this for his telephonic needs.

    The retractable cord is what really sells it.

    What's wrong with them?

    I know Kiton shoes are great, sure, but $1500 for em? What would make me spend just as much as a bespoke shoe and enough left over for a pair of Lobbs for them?

    Pricey but hot wingtip bals by Nettleton in 9.5D. Rare to see a medium width in this unworn state. Check out those soles -- can definitely tell they're the slightly more elegant brother of the iconic Nettleton longwing.

    What a tasteful item.

    I don't understand why people spend well upwards of $100 on well-used shoes...

    I don't get why people would spend $10 for well-used shoes. If you aren't buying them at a thrift shop out of necessity ... [​IMG]

    I just sell what the people want. Sometimes I feel guilty when an extremely worn pair sells for a lot. I think to myself, "You paid that much for these?"

    I make sure the really beat shoes are accurately described and photographed. Nothing else I can do. I'm certainly not going to talk someone out of it.

    I believe they're Cheaney. Definitely not C&J. No question about it.
