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.

    On top of my eBay auctions, I am selling two pairs of John Lobb Paris bespoke loafers. Â I am asking for $800 each. Â Alas, I only brought one pair of shoe trees back, and I am planning on selling it separately (though haven't decided on price). Here are some pictures. Â Email me for more, or look them up on eBay in a day or two. Â As always, I will list them on eBay for a bit higher than my offer for forum members. Both pairs come with original shoe box and red shoe cloth bags. Â The shoe trees will come with their original thick cotton cloth bag. Right shoe measures 11 3/8 long, 3 15/16 wide, 4mm sole edge. Left shoe measures 11 7/16 long, 3 15/16 wide. Comments and suggestions welcomed. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have to take exception to this quote in your listing for the shoe magazine issue of Mens Ex:
    Having read an earlier thread on Mens Ex I contacted Kinokuniya in New York. They ordered the two Mens Ex shoe magazines for me. They charged me $52.25, including $7 for delivery.
    Your opening bid for just the second volume is more than Kinokuniya charged me for both volumes. You're charging $11 for shipping one volume where Kinokuniya charged $7 for two. You can demand whatever you want for the magazine and for shipping. There's nothing wrong with that. What's wrong, though, is specifically saying that it is not available at Kinokuniya, when it is. Why even mention Kinokuniya? A lot of people have probably never even heard of Kinokuniya.

    Sorry about that listing, I wrote that listing at a time when both volumes were not available at Kinokuniya (I live in New York for years, so I know), and I just hit 'relist' everytime I sold one. I haven't thought of editing the listing until you mentioned.  Thanks for letting me know.

    Also, the auction is more for Europeans than average Joe. Circulation is quite limited in US, and even more so in Europe.  Most of my bidders thus far (for the past half dozen sales) were Europeans.  

    The profit is actually peanuts, it's just that I purchased a bunch of these in Japan when it first came out, meaning to give away some and to sell some.

    Fair enough. Nothing personal. [​IMG]

    I was an uninfomed buyer of this book, I guess it pays to do my homework. I plan on calling Kinokuniya and ordering volume 1. Anixously awaiting volume 2 naturlaut.

    My suggestion is to describe your feet in as detailed a form as possible. Are you, say, a 43D? How about a 41EE? Do you have bunions? Flat feet? High arch?

    I have shoes in varying lengths, but I have no idea if these would fit me without a good comparison of the feet. For what it's worth, I suspect we're a similar size, but I reallly can't tell from shoe measurements.
