To raise money for MOVEMBER I am selling a number of my best thrift store finds, with the aim of raising $1,000 for this great cause. The Movember Foundation seeks to raise funds to help fight majir men's health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and depression.

Buyers will be asked to make a donation of the purchase price to my Movember page, and separately pay me for shipping, if required. Buyers from Melbourne are welcome to pick up.


PLEASE NOTE. This is a sale for charity, so there will be no returns or refunds for any reason.

This is a lovely pair of bench made dress shoes from George Cleverley. The Jack fits like a loafer, with its elastic sides, but its cap toe and elegant brogueing make them ideal work wear. They are burgundy in colour, and with a bit of a polish will look fantastic.

The uppers are in very nice condition. There are no major scuffs, scratches or gouges. Inside the shoes look very lightly worn, as evidenced by the very small amount of wear on the maker's logo. Soles and heels both still have plenty of wear left.

They are marked size UK 8.5E. External measures are about 30.5 cms (12") along the sole and 10.5 cms (4.1") across at the widest point.

I am based in Melbourne, Australia and local members are very welcome to meet up and check these out. The shoes will be shipped via Registered Post. As a guide, shipping in Australia would be about $15 (Express satchel) and to the USA about $50.

Thanks for reading, and please feel free to donate to Movember even if you don't want these shoes :)

Sorry, that's a complicated question that I really can't answer. The sizing is UK8.5E. Best I can do is the length and width measures that have been provided, which you can compare to a pair of your own.
