This happened on the black pair??
read the last two pages. 3rd to last page has sizing info as well
Wow this thread blew up without my noticing. That's really awful.
My head hurts.
make it go away
Vodka seems the only hope.
you are right. vodka and a match. send them sky high
Namor to be fair I think the problem was on Gilt's end in this latest instance. they didn't describe these shoes as shell, as far as I know. now, as I said before I never buy from Gilt anymore b/c shady descriptions and effed up MSRP is just the way they roll and I won't support any business like that, in general. I just expect shit to go bad
DB spray painted their shoes with black paint. did Gilt do that?
no, but that's also why I don't buy Made in India shoes anymore
You may want to try some high end vintage shoes??
Gilt they messed all of the DB shoes. If you look at their Smooth brown they are not smooth brown on the gilt pictures. They are milled brown. I think Gilt also combined the Cordovan and Burgundy all in one . Cordovan colour is only available in leather and the Burgundy is available only in Shell. What our member rennavate" received I am sure is Burgundy . Which is Shell as per DB website. And what [COLOR=FF00AA][COLOR=FF00AA]namor [/COLOR][/COLOR]received is available in both shell and leather. I am thinking gilt also consolidated them and sending what ever to who ever. Becos they are too dumb to put some decent descriptions on their web site.
I wanted a sleek shell longwing. something on the plaza or grant last would have been great and this appeared as a great substitute. now ill just have to wear my lindricks and ravello alden boots.
Sorry to hear about your situation.
Have you got a chance to post the pic yet?
Namor, keep an eye out for an Allen Edmonds sale, too. They have shell Leeds (similar to Alden PTB) and MacNeils on sale often. And they have seconds in the $300 range right now. Definitely miles better than Duckies.
