    So I looked at this again, these looked like they are dyed Gold. Then looking at them again, it looks like they may be black but the lighting is just so bad... I just can't tell, but you would think with a name like indigophoto they could take a little better picture so I am going with Gold.

    I think he just means the fact that they are bluchers. Honestly, I'd advertise them as oxfords too because most buyers don't know the difference and will think all dress shoes are "oxfords."

    The whole "Oxford, Wingtip, Loafer" selection is an ebay flaw in my opinion. A bal wingtip would be considered an oxford correct? A blucher wingtip would be a derby. I wish they would updat the selections a bit.

    Just looks like horrible white balance to me.


    Agreed. But I doubt it makes much difference as most buyers can't make the distinction.

    Yeah...it still bugs the crap out of me when I cant decide whether I want to be an oxford or wingtip because it is technically both, or when it is neither.

    Lol, There were 3 junkers. G Beene (the ugliest tie ever), Carlo Columbo (which doesn't look half bad) and DeSantis (which looks like a fake Versace)

    Fro $40, might be worth mending it up. Yeah, you'd probably see the repair, but it wouldn't be that dramatic if done right, and it would look like honest wear. If you usually only wear sweaters under a jacket, the repair would matter even less.

    And similar target sweaters cost about $30 new, so a similar price, and the wool pills really badly and quickly. With the Isaia, it's going to be a much nicer quality wool. Still, I'm with you on the outrage over the $675 price tag.
