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.

    Hi, I'm cleaning out my closet, and I have the following items for sale. I would rather sell here than eBay, for a variety of reasons. All prices include priority shipping within the 48 states: Puma Platinum/96 Hours black strap sneakers Size: 9 american/42 european, D width (true to size) Condition: 7/10, I wore these around a good amount, but they are in great condition just the same. Shipped Cost: $40, retailed for $300 I love the style of these badboys. There are no laces, just two straps that button closed. Also, the tongue has a punch out hole on top. Fully leather uppers (inside and out) and a tough rubber sole. Deep rich black. Much respect to Neil Barrett for making these beauties. Made in Italy. [​IMG] [​IMG] APC pinstripe jeans Condition: Brand New Without Tags Size: 30 "Cure", unhemmed (a touch more than 35" inseam) Shipped Cost: $60, purchased for $147 from apc.fr These are pinstriped jeans from last summer season. I bought them and didn't return them in time. Doh. I tried them on once... WAAAAY too slim for me. They follow the standard cure sizing. They're a sky blue jean with a vertical white pinstripe running down the jeans. The color is a bit stronger than it appears in the image. I really like these, they simply do not fit and have been sitting in my closet for a year now. [​IMG] Helmut Lang elastic trainers Size: marked as a 9, fits like a 10-10 1/2 D (more like the latter) Condition: 8/10, I wore these around for a few days last summer, they're just too big. [​IMG] Shipped Cost: $100, retailed for $320 These are badass shoes. End of story. No laces here either, the shoe is held shut by wide elastic bands on the sides. A combination of leather, suede, and open mesh nylon on the sides, these shoes are insanely comfortable and very rugged. Extremely well-made shoes. From Helmut Lang's last season, too. Comes with both shoe bags and the original box. I strongly doubt you'll ever see these for sale again. Note: the shoes don't look wrinkled when worn, the elastic pulls them tight.

    Oh! You had to go and post yet another of my weaknesses... Lang sneakers. And THEN you had to post them in MY SIZE and at a good price!

    Great shoes; I'm really trying to resist snatching them up.

    You're evil! I don't have to listen to this!! [​IMG] But, the only thing keeping me from buying these is that I've bought 3 or 4 pairs of shoes already this month.

    If nobody has bought these in about two weeks or so (and something tells me they'll sell WAY before then), definitely drop me a PM.

    I got a lot of questions about the soles of the shoes, and so I'm posting one in the thread:

    [​IMG]

    As you can see, the soles are in tip-top condition, they don't hardly look worn.

    If anyone has any other questions/etc, feel free to ask.
