    Yeah I'm fine, thanks for asking. I'm letting them go because some people around me could use help more than I need a couple extra pairs of shoes regardless of how much I love them or how lucky I was to get them. As i said before Id like them to go to some regulars in here as I know they will go to someone who really appreciates them.

    Hope you manage to get your "Thor" boot from the new LS location somehow man.


    As stanford88 said think it was just simple mistake as I believe Beatlegeuse thought the Cigar shoes in my listing were PTBs however they are cap toe butchers.

    Best of luck in your search for a pair though Beatlegeuse.


    Oh and i'm not trying to get over on anyone with the price points for both Ravello offerings, I know they are a little higher than retail, but I'd just be getting the money I paid for them back once paypal fees + priority shipping and insurance charges are taken out of the payment.

    ^ Great seller here with some outstanding offerings. I wish those shortwings were 1/2 size smaller.

    That is very noble of you. Good to know that there are still a few good people left in this world. The gratification you'll get from helping others will exceed the pleasure that those fantastic shoes would have provided. I hope they don't take too long to sell.

    I'm not going to bother trying to get the LS Cigar Jumper. If our group MTO ever gets confirmed, that will be great, but I just had a pair of MTO "espresso" shell boots from Rancourt delivered today which I bought as a hedge incase the "Thor" doesn't work out. Stop by the Rancourt thread and check em out if you want. I'm very pleased with them.

    Ahh you're right, my mistake. Meant to type captoe instead of PTB. Great shoes either way, good luck with the sale....I actually like those captoes better than PTBs

    The Bureau in Belfast is offering free international shipping through Christmas. This puts their calf at a VAT reduced price of £355 ($570). Expensive, but if they have a make-up you must have, I've never seen them do a better sale.

    Dammit guys i really need a pair of the j crew #8 captoe boots. If any of you guys bought a pair during the sale in 9.5D and find that you don't need them, please let me know. I have a pair of the #8 wingtip boots but I feel that the j crew captoe would work a lot better in my wardrobe.
