    I dont know why your thread offering shoes, jackets, Kenneth coles (its one category of item) etc in the BS forum is locked but I found you to have some of the funniest justifications for selling items. While this kind of talk is common in SF, it still amazes me: bought these shoes for my brother but didn't fit, bought this jacket but don't really like the colour, it is surreal

    As for the barker black plant in Northampton it must be really huge, i suspect it is so huge one cant even find it


    You seem like a pedantic little man! Why not put the reasoning?! I do not understand why people have to make these funny little comments! Actually I do; it is entertaining. However, I bet your reaction to this message will be some nonsensical but overly smart and ultra clever piece of one-upmanship. I hope you find it gratifying to write!
    By the way the factory is there and is large and is purpose built- look it up on the net old chum!

    C&J for BB and their house branded shooz don't always match in terms of last IDs.
    That particular model runs 1/2 a size too large.

    My latest acquisition (in Montreux, CH): Cesare Firrao

    It seems they are not very popular around here. Blake construction, styling and quality maybe similar to Martegani / Cortina. Retail for these was about 550 USD, the most expensive I saw (Prestige line) were 1600 USD. They have an online shop with more reasonable prices. Can anybody comment on the quality?

    Maybe it seems in the picture, but I really don't think so.

    They are a sport shoe in my opinion. The colour, the lazes... And for that matter, I think that somethin different as long as it is not exagerated is nice.

    If not, all my shoes will look the same...

    The brogues are small instead of big, and the rest of the shoe has little decoration, so I think is not an excess:

    I really like them thanks for posting.

    So what do you think - are the made to regular AS specs or closer to handmade quality?. They cost USD545.

    The sole confused me with the font ...I should have stuck with nail pattern as always..

    Regular stuff. You won't get anything close to handgrade without closed channel soles. Also, it says benchmade. If they were "handmade," they would definitely let you know.

    The last shoes I saw at Sid Mashburn were Edward Green made unless I am mistaken. It's been a while since I have been there.
