Happy Monday SF!

Has anyone used the new eBay international service? from what I understand, sellers just need to ship to the eBay hub and eBay considers the sale complete from there. Seems relatively low risk but curious if others have used this service. Thanks!

Many times. Works as you describe and for me, the net shipping cost is lower than it would have otherwise been.

I don’t think it’s too new. I’ve used it for a couple of years at least.

Finally coming back to Alden boots after several years. I had a pair of 403s that I loved and wore a lot. Then I sent them back to be refurbished by Alden, who completely ruined the boots!
Anyway, all water under bridge at this point, and I decided to open up the wallet for the new “Roy” boots from Alden Madison. The Roy boot was originally done by context clothing, of course, but they’re out of business and I guess Madison produces them on occasion now. I had tried a pair of context’s Roy boots back in the day, but it was a 10D and a little too long for me. Since Madison offered E widths, I decided to try 9 1/2 E and I think these will work.
Looking forward to breaking them in and putting some wear on them. I know the crêpe sole, and probably even more so the leather toe tap, will not be hard wearing, but I hope they last a decent amount of time. Esp given my last attempt at resoling Aldens!
Wear them in good health.

Took an "office" shot of my cigar LWBs but took another when I saw the sun catching these just right:

I always take off my shoes downstairs before heading up to put them in trees.

These have the darker “mahogany” edges correct?

I thought I was the only one with that iteration??? Great looking shoes!
