    Thanks! Marcoliani extra fine merino OTC from Alex @ customshirt1.com. I resisted buying the blue suede Indy boot this weekend, even though they look outstanding. Thinking a blue suede chukka or the unlined PTB would be great for me. Must stop looking at the Leffot website…

    Thanks. The key on the Van & LHS is the low vamp, if you have a high instep they will kill your feet. I keep the same size as the Barrie & size up on the width to alleviate that problem. Horror stories on the LHS abound on the thread. What are you looking to purchase in the Van last?

    No problem. You can always go to Brooks Brothers & get sized there for the LHS. They use a different last on theirs but it will give you an idea if the LHS is for you.

    I think that what you are missing is crack-cocaine; and thats a good thing. I can't imagine WTF is up with that auction, either. I'm gonna watch it and email the seller and ask him if I can contact the winning bidder, cuz I'm curious to know what kind of crack they're smoking!

    they probably see 6.5 as a rare size and think they'll miss out if then don't jump

    Could also be the seller himself driving up a price w/ artificial ebay accounts to generate interest on the auction. Then he sells to himself, bumps his feedback, and turns them back around again on the bay.

    That's gonna be some hefty final value fees for him if he is the one driving up the price and then wins them.

    Given that the current top two bidders have histories that show bidding only on these pair of shoes, there's a good chance that they are, in fact, shill accounts, which is too bad because this seller puts a lot of Aldens up on ebay from time to time.

    eBay Final value fees are close to 10% of the buyer price ... I'm not sure if its to the seller's interest to gamble $100 of his money per listing
