Seriously considering selling my Cigar PCT boots on Plaza, size 9D. Wore them out one time, maybe 3 hours at most. All eyelets, double leather (waterloc?) Antique edges. PM offers if interested, I have a number and mind, and they won't be cheap.View attachment 1398732View attachment 1398733View attachment 1398734View attachment 1398735View attachment 1398737View attachment 1398742
Looks like regular double leather, not waterloc. Looks great. Very nice shade of cigar. Too bad they're not 8 1/2 or I'd try to score them from you.

I snagged a couple pairs of exotic shell from the most recent seconds drop on TSM. I need cash right now so am going to throw them on ebay. Will sell them to someone here if I can make $0 per pair. Send me a message if you're interested. Thanks.

If you needed cash right now it sounds like you probably shouldn't have bought three pairs of shoes that weren't in your size

I’m surprised that they let him order three pairs in different sizes. They have a two pair limit to discourage flipping. I ended up returning the two pairs I bought BTW, so they’ll be back on the TSM site eventually.

If you need cash right now, you should never try to become a dealer. BAD IDEA.

Boy am I glad you guys chimed in before I could. You were (are) much more polite than I would have been. I MIGHT have been interested in the cigar boots, but no way would I give this guy a flipping profit..

I’m actually surprised he posted here. Did he really think he’d get a warm welcome purchasing exotics to flip.

Guess it doesn't hurt to try, but.........
IF they had all been same size, and guy needed money due to something like COVID, well perhaps. The general tone was I want to make a profit and I got stuff you didn't, so pay me a premium and you can have them. I have no love for flippers. I have bought/sold many pair here and 99.,9% of the people I have dealt with are honest/ upright members of the forum, I know I have sold stuff at a loss, and have purchased things from members who are not making a profit. To post a blatant "I Want to make a profit" thing here is not in keeping with the tone of the the general thread. I don't begrudge my fellow members making a slight profit, but for God's sake don't state it up front. :)

I'm sure TSM will be pleased you trying to profit off them. And they will be able to tell who you are.

Hey all,

Just trying to thin the closet for my sanity.

Brand: Alden 686 Loafers
Price: $160 OBO
Material: Calf
Sole: Leather
Last: 9.5D Aberdeen Last
Wears/condition: Used, I'm the 2nd owner and I've worn it less than 5 times.

https://imgur.com/a/5FaYBVo
Notes: These are too narrow for me. If you were a 9.5C I would imagine these would work for you, otherwise it cuts into the inside of my feet.

Can you make them 8.5D? I'd take them if so........
