Trying to find ne2 homes for both these new Alden make-ups. The Broque Tanker is 825.00 shipped and the Indy is 600.00 shipped. They both come as new with all packaging. The tanker is a 6EE on the Barrie and the Indy is a 6E on the Trubalance. Indy is unworn and the Tanker was worn inside to test the fit.

What’s wrong w/these companies? They dont take ‘em back?
What abt exchanges? “Send me a better fit, plez" no?
Change your mind?

Hey,

WTD: 12.5C penny loafers

Also any heads up to where they are in stock greatly appreciated (although I'm pretty sure they're not stocked anywhere)

From my understanding most of the items for sale on here have been worn a handful of times and are therefore not eligible for return. Furthermore, a lot of these shoes will show signs of wear (leather creases, scuffed soles) after a single wear session.

Not fair to consumers for retailers to be charged full price for something that is obviously previously worn. Not fair to retailers to expect them to eat any sort of discount necessary for re-selling previously worn items.

thank you, that helps:

“...something that is obviously previously worn. Not fair to retailers to expect them to eat

AND, I’m thinking
“Changed their minds”. Caveat:
Wear on rug, do not “break toe” walk for the 1st few hrs. You can still return.

I would also say a fair number of these are not stocked items and are most likely part of a pre-order and probably also not eligible for return due to that as well

To be honest, all of that works out in my favor since Alden MSRP is a bit rich for my blood these days...so I don't mind being able to scoop up some gently used ones for a decent discount.

AND...
dat’s what funds dis page on the forum (I imagine).
Not for me so much as I no longer sit in the office
4x10 d/wk. More on - is it called ‘sports casual’ these
days? It’s allowing more personal accent. Havin fun w/
the scarves/ascots now (under shirt, over; different lengths
etc). Less ‘structured’ all round~

Sometimes we wear shoes off and on for a year because we really like them... Then we realize we haven't worn them in a while, and we realize it's because they don't really fit as well as we thought they did when we first got them. We let our initial enjoyment overpower our practicality.
