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.

    These are absolutely stunning! Made in England for Brooks Brothers' "Brooks English" line, these wonderful pumps are in absolutely excellent condition--I have their provenance, and they were worn precisely twice. They have not yet even been polished, and so they have minor scuffs from wear that five minutes of buffing will deal with; they also have very, very minor creasing in the uppers commensurate with being worn inside for two evenings. The feature the classic, elegant lines of men's opera pumps, and grosgrain ribbon bows. There is, of course, almost no wear to the soles, although the original owner wisely and lightly scored cross-hatching into them after he almost killed himself dancing the first time he wore them. (This, by the way, was done in the lobby of the Princeton Club of New York!)

    (The cedar shoe trees on which these have been stored for their life are not included.)

    These are size 42C, which corresponds to aproximately a US 11.5 C. (I'm a US 11, and these are slightly too large for me.)

    Asking $95, boxed and shipped in CONUS. OFFERS WELCOME!

    Hello, these do not seem as shiny as the one's currently on the BB website. Are they patent leather? Will then shine like on the BB website? How do I contact you. The PM says it cannot connect to the server.

    Thanks for your interest! They don't seem to be patent leather, as they lack the rather plastic shine that that generally has, but it's likely that they will shine very well once polished.

    All offers--even low ones!--are very welcome!
