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 am selling the Grensons that I purchased from Bennie's last spring. They are brown captoes with very nice antiquing. Size 10D. The shoes are brand new and have never been worn. I asking $250 (plus shipping), which is what I paid.

    I will post pics later (hopefully tonight).

    PM me if interested

    Thanks

    I think I have two unworn Bennies Grenson masterpieces in 10.5. One is a wholecut slip-on, might have worn the other one so it is no longer new.

    Also a few pairs of CJ made Brooks Brothers in 10.

    Might also have a CJ made for Brooks in 9.5 that I think runs a little big.

    Are you looking for size 10 or would 10.5 also work.

    Is that UK 10D? I am assuming this is US since standard width on UK shoes is an E. Pics still coming?

    I'm an idiot who doesn't read, or retain anything read. Will slink away now.

    Just an endorsement of these shoes in general, I own the exact same model--the Oundle--in the same color. They're very useful, very attractively made and of high quality. There's a reason why the Bennie's sales were such big hits.

    I own them too, and pics don't do them justice. Very nice shoes. Well worth the price.

    The shoes look stunning but is it really the Oundle. I was at Bennies this summer and the Oundles I saw had a more narrow and square-toed last than this model, which seems to have a rounder toe. I ask because the Oundle did not fit my wider foot and high instep well and I ended up buying a pair of black perf captoes in with round toe that fit me beautifully. I am a 9.5 and would be interested in these if it weren't the Oundle, or would a size 10 Oundle fit me better than the 9.5?

    I thought the Grenson Oundle was the wholecut model, no?
