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.

    PLEASE NOTE: I will wait no longer then 24 hours for replies from interested parties. I have been having too many people claiming that they want something and then disappearing for days, if not all together. You must provide me with your email address upon initially contacting me.


    Up for sale is a brand new pair of suede chucka boots from Gravati in moss green. These were made exclusively for Neiman Marcus last season and are an ideal multitasker as they work both in the office & out. This is due to the very pleasing & versitile lines of the toe box that are neither to slouchy/casual (think J.Crews Macalister chuckas) nor to Pointy/stuffy/eccentic (think Kiton, Girling & allot of other notorious Italian brands) as well as the mixed media/material outsole that made from both stacked leather & finished off with a final rubber layer for traction, padding & better wear/less tear, particularly on wet ground.

    Add to those two essential aspects these two finer details:

    - The fine nap, extra soft & smooth suede used on the upper is an ideal moss green that shows a deep hue in lit areas & appears more of a fatigued brown low lit areas. At no point does the color come a cross as dull nor overpowering or loud. IT is always refined.

    - The shoes are completely lined (sans insole/footbed) with the highest quality shearling that I have ever seen. this stuff is baby soft & a beautiful "golden fleece" in color that almost looks the way the head of a beer does as cascades downward after being poured from the tap.

    These are brand new. They do not have their original box/packaging but I can provide a box & shoe bags at no charge and perhaps even contact Gravati for replacements.

    The shoes have no flaws with the exception of a few nicks to the leather on the side of the outsole but that is easily rectified with sole edge dressing.

    The are tagged a size 9 1/2 but run smaller (look to ba a 8 1/2US to 9US)
    The shoes measure a fraction of a millimeter or so shy of 11 & 1/2 " from toe to heel of the sole as well as a fraction of a millimeter or so over 4" when measuring the forefoot of the sole at it's widest point.


    Details include:

    - Suede upper in Moss Green (appears brown in low lighting)
    - Interior fully lined in baby soft golden fleece shearling (sans insole)
    - Insole/foot bad is padded & lined in leather.
    - Marked Size 9 & 1/2 though runs small (more like a 8 1/2US to 9US)
    - New without box
    - Hand made in Italy
    - $900 retail

    Dude, don't even get me started.

    I was so damn let down when I realized they would not fit me & that they could not get any more sizes. I can try to hunt down a pair but chances are they will never surface. I am vary particular in general but even more so when it comes to chuckas.

    Needless to say, if these were my size they would be keepers & never see a listing.
