1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I picked up these Alden Shell Cordovan Full Strap Slip-On
    Loafers thanks to this thread.

    Brand new with box and bags. 10.5E. Never worn and tried on
    once by me but too wide.

    Bought from teamshoeseaport.com going out of business sale.
    Paid $295 on sale and asking $295 including shipping.
    Retail price is approximately $490.

    Also, I am not a very experienced seller but long time lurker. Does the forum think I would do better with these on ebay?

    I think those would do well on ebay. You have a wider audience there. Here you have to hit things just right with a size and shoe style that someone is looking for. Your price is certainly fair, IMO. You might try a listing of $250 minimum bid with a BIN of $350.

    Definitely better on eBay-mostly because most of us knew about that sale. I would start at $299 and not limit yourself with a buy it now.

    ^I defer to distinctive's (much) greater experience on shoe sales.

    I think you can get about $300 for them on ebay. so go for it

    make sure you show that you have the box and bags, etc. those are a plus.

    Why not put up the rest of the pictures? Pictures move goods.

    Agreed, put up some sole pictures at least

    I'm no expert at this but I tried to. They show up in the small gallery in the top left but can not be enlarged. I am not sure what I missed.

    You've got a slide show set up. Normally, the bottom picture would be smaller and have an option to go to the next slide. I use auctiva to host pictures, so unfortunately I am unfamiliar with this option.
