    Wow! :slayer:
    Bullock & Jones is a upper-tier men's clothier in San Francisco. Sort of like Ben Silver and Brooks Brothers. Pricing is more like Ben Silver. They make some nice house-label stuff. In the early 2000's, Saks Fifth Ave started carrying the link and this is when they changed to that label (the orange/black with the ram). Before, the label was blue and white, IIRC. Nice stuff, though.
    +1. Most definitely.

    +10000. I almost cried when I realized he wasn't selling AND it was my size. So, so close (but not really at all).

    I saw these on the way to the game, so I was rushing. I thought they looked shell-ish. Any ID ideas? Shell/no shell?

    Pair of AE Ashton in 9 and a Harris Tweed coat (42) tonight... need to find more stores. My phone took me through the (sort of) ghetto trying to find one and then it turns out it had shut down!

    I saw some Ferragamo loafers in decent shape, but were missing the cushion part. Passed. Mistake?

    Side Note: WTF is going on with ebay. Just got this email. I had a case where the guy "never received" the item even that the PO said it delivered it and he demanded a full refund, left neg feedback and 1 star ratings.... a few months later I get this tonight [​IMG]It has not been updated in my actual feedback profile yet, but hopefully will be by tomorrow

    His size, which is near my size...so I think 40-42L'ish. He seems entirely uninterested in selling, though I doubt that will stop you from trying. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Jk, looks like he's 40-41R, not L...so I can go on with life, thankfully.

    Congrats! Maybe the guy got NARU'd - if he was under 60 days as a member, and gets NARU'd, the feedback scores they leave go away.

    Far, far away from anything that would fit you or me. I think he's trying to keep it a secret so he doesn't get bombarded with PMs.



    Looks like eBay is finally turning around. I think I may start liking them again.

    Amazing. I hope they keep it up and level out the bias between buyers and sellers, just like how it used to be when I started selling there.
