    Great shoes, but the soles on Harris always seem a bit over the top. Still, I wouldn't be a bit above owning a pair... [​IMG]

    The Harris loafers were selling around $100 on eBay. You should have no trouble selling them at that price on eBay.

    Did you mean Barney's sale, or Barney's Warehouse Sale? I thought the Warehouse Sale started in Feb?.?.

    The some of the Harris shoes I saw at Barney's last week were rapid-Blake stitched, which leads me to believe that all of them are.

    The picture of the sole highlights some of the differences of the shoes at Barneys and Marshalls. Note the brass tacks and that the 'H' is printed, not etched in. The Marshalls shoes don't have tacks and the 'H' is etched into the sole. Can someone please confirm?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....81&rd=1 These are the exact same shoes as the ones I purchased at Marshalls. Renault: My shoes do have tacks on the heels, and the H seems to be stamped into the sole.

    VersaceMan, those are the ones I bought from A. Harris. If you got them for 50 bucks......what a steal.

    Thanks to this forum, I bought a pair of Harris shoes yesterday at Marshalls. I paid the full $150; I guess in my area people appreciate the quality and are buying at that full price. Anyway, they are chestnut brown oxfords. The leather is soft and the quality seems excellent. This forum has paid dividends for me. I had not been to Marshalls in years and would not have gone if I had not read here about the availability of the Harris shoes there.

    Great purchase. The leather on Harris shoes seems to be great, from the pair I own. I'm glad that you were able to pick up the shoes at such a good price.

    I would have really loved a pair of lace-ups rather than the loafer style, but for $55 I'm not complaining at all.

    WOW... I forgot all about this thread LOL... $50 is an incredible deal.
    Just thought I would add an update, I have worn those shoes 4 times and they are no where near broken in but still very comfortable...

    Is there a Marshall's in NYC that carries them?

    I'm not too sure about the aforementioned cities, but if anyone is in the S.E. Wisconsin / N.E. Illinois / Chicago areas, it would be worth your while to visit the Marshall's inside of the Gurnee Mills mall, in Illinois. This is where I found the Harris shoes.

    The Sak's Off Fifth outlet in Gurnee Mills also has their 50% off clearance sale going, as well as an additional 25% off sweaters and outerwear. Many nice pieces at reasonable prices. I was surprised to see quite a few pieces by Helmut Lang, Varvatos, Martin Margelia, Jean Paul Gaultier, and other such designers. There is also a new H&M store that recently opened in the mall, for fans of trendier clothing.

    The Versace store in Kenosha, Wisconsin also has 50-75% off a good majority of their inventory.
