    The grailed guy updated his ravello cap toe post to show the actual pictures on eBay and on grailed. As expected, the sole is actually more worn than Mike's pair was.

    Haha, why thank you sir!

    They're actually from Jcrew...I think they were around ~$70 on sale with a coupon.

    IMO it's intentional dishonesty to use other 'real world' pics of shoes to sell your pair, ala what's happening to MDubs all the time now. I get that his pics come up in Google Images, that he has enviable photos... but you should be using your own photos and at MOST the retailer's for a reference pic. I can think of no reason to not show ONLY your photos other than to try and make your pair seem better than what they are...

    Which black cordovan boot on a commando sole would you choose:

    Wingtip Boot
    Tanker Boot

    Assume the buyer already has a pair of black wingtip bluchers...

    Sellers should only use photos of their own models to sell shoes in all cases

    Depends on your clothes style for me I am casual, denim, chinos, cords so a barrie/trubalance Tanker would be the choice

    Gentlemen,

    One of the reasons why I reacted so strongly against the Alden exotic price gouging is because I have several exotic models that I would like to sell.

    Obviously, I would like them to stay in the community here.

    If you don't want to pay a grand for an Alden Whiskey Cordovan Wingtip Boot, then I have a pair that have been worn 4-5 max.

    Size US 10E 379X last from 14oz in Berlin. They are firsts and in better condition that the irregulars on the Bay.

    I just snapped this pic about 10 min ago:

    [​IMG]

    No smoking mirrors or fog machines. No bait and switch. No Jedi mind tricks. Just my IMMACULATE boots for you.

    I offered these privately first to some and now publicly to all.

    I am just looking to recoup my costs.

    Thanks.

    PM me if interested.
