    this is one of the universes great and enduring truths.


    i have been told, you can guess by whom, that that does not mean they are unavailable. they are just not on the site. email taco if you are looking for info. srs. he is the man.

    as an aside, iirc, last sale a lot of inventory was gobbled up by people trying to flip. which i was unthrilled by, as people wait for these sales to get shoes they love, but cant otherwise attain. hopefully, the absence of shoes on the site will cut down on that.

    no hate to the flippers. i just didnt love it in this circumstance.

    Girling prices keep going up. Bah. RTW is now almost at MTO prices less than a year ago.

    I bought a pair through Barney's thinking they would fit, and they didn't, but I fell back on the idea that I could resell them and likely at a profit. Looking back, it was foolish to go with loafers since they seem to be the hardest fit, but I was in the market for a pair of brown loafers and really wanted G&G. Now I'm just trying to breakeven on them - which has proven to be rather difficult.

    just had a quick browse at barneys San Francisco and G&Gs are for sale at around the $700 to $800 mark including the burnham chelsea. Not a bad deal if anyone looking to get some G&G

    B&S has changed over the past couple of years; it used to be a lot better.

    I'm not trying to be a crank about it, just seems like the offerings aren't as good as they used to be. That being said, some sellers still bring the goods.

    I think its a combination of quality an unrealistic expectation of buyers to get everything at 95% off retail. Had to chime in as both a buyer and seller. I am hoping to take a trip to Barney's tomorrow to see what they have.

    +10. I was thinking the same thing yesterday when I was polishing mine (and a pair of RM's). the latter felt like Bricks.
