    aint this the truth. 4 months in and ive already found a new passion in life


    since joining ive gone up 9 pairs of AE's, 1 edurado G and 1 C&J. all from the bay or from other members. everything was previously owned but in SF quality. i think i only paid over 150 for one pair(C&J westfield). i like to think im the posterboy for the fact that you can find good shoes for cheap prices



    Some nice grabs, there. Congrats!

    I love the grain pattern, color, and last shape of those. If they fit, you got yourself a great bargain.

    Style is 'Grafton' one of the all-time-classics in the Church's catalogue.
    Leather is 'Ranch Oxhide'. Last is (probably) 73.

    You got yourself a bargain.

    thanks!
    they are a 9c and fit me as well as my uk7.5 EG
    slightly tighter instep but still ok

    is 'ranch oxhide'' regarded as exortic leathers?
    how much will they cost if i am buying a pair nowadays?
    thanks again!

    I will also agree that the 337 is somewhat put to shame by the 888 (disclaimer, I own both and they are my 2 favorites, the top being the triple 8, see sig. below). But that's like if somehow Heidi Klum or Marissa Miller or Jessica Alba or Christy Turlington or goddess of your choice (888) were in the same room as let's say January Jones ( I'm watching Mad Men season 1 now; 337).
    Marissa Miller is the hottest person alive...Period [​IMG] Great analogy

    Great boots.

    I'd love to get a pair at some point, but they cost as much as a pair of Handgrades. [​IMG]

    I, uh, failed to do the same, but I seriously love these boots.
