Ralph Lauren Purple Label (by Edward Green)
Size: 8.5UK/9D US
Last: 82 Very difficult to find on RLPL shoes. Fit is similar to the 888 with a rounded toe box.
Color: Black

Includes Shoes, newer spring loaded trees, dust cloths, and box.
PRISTINE, FIRSTS, PURCHASED FROM A RETAIL STORE!

Price: $950
My Price: $485 shipped! (USPS Priority + insurance)
I'd rather not take a bath on these. Price seems fair given the recent EG sale prices, and the fact that these INCLUDE the super nice shoe trees.

A righteous deal that someone should jump on.

If they were a half size smaller, they'd be gone.

I have the same pair as well (in that size). Very cool "blind" stitched captoe, and that cool broguing on the tongue . . .great price/shoe.

I am looking for that exact style of shoe atm. 9D is a tad small though I dont knwo my size in EG. I assume a person that wears 10D in most shoes this would be too small for. BAHHH i want those shoes.

Too small for me too, but they would have been gone in an instant if they were my size.

I figured I'd post this useless info in an attempt to bump this thread for you

If any of you have worn both, would you please compare the fit of these to the AE Fairfax in 9D - particularly in the ball of the foot area?
Thanks very much.
