    Who the hell pays to get shoes recrafted and *then* decides it's the perfect time to donate them? [​IMG]

    Is that what the "good" Lanvin stuff looks like?


    [​IMG]OMG that's the sexiest thing I've seen in a while... Those might be $1000 shooz. Just out of curiousity, size?

    I mean...really? Not even ONE wear after recrafting before kicking the bucket? The leather is untouched. I can actually understand NWT things a bit more...yeah, you buy something, tuck it away, never use it, then it gets donated after you're gone. But with these, there's clearly wear on the uppers, which means they were worn heavily, taken with effort/time to a recrafter, received back, then not even worn once. That seems much more odd to me for some reason.

    EDIT: But yes, those C&Js are baller. It's hard to tell because of the sheeny-ness of the pics, but what color are they, dark brown?

    *SpooSignal* (this needs to just be one of the emoticon's by now). From my collected expertise though, yes. That is actual recent-ish Lanvin. I have no idea how it does on the Bay, but I kinda have a secret itch to pick up at least one of every worthwhile label...

    I know [​IMG]. I was pretty happy with the Church's Customs.. and then those came along...8.5 D

    Well, at least I don't have to feel bad about not finding a way to get them since they're not my size [​IMG]

    i have a feeling that if there was a pool where everyone would place bets on when DM7's "lucky streak" would end, the smart money would be on "when he decides to stop thrifting."

    mad props to Cap on the 33/34 Zanellas he found a few weeks back. Sent me two pair of brown that were exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately they fit a VERY fat 33 waist. Must have expanded them by a couple inches and the thighs were wider than fok.

    Otherwise, it was a great deal. thanks again Cap.

    (available if anyone has interest).

    Guy has probably posted $25,000 worth of profit in the past months, conservatively, dont think its a lucky streak.

    thinking about it. got a great deal on the pants but I'm guessing I'd have to take in waist, slim out the thighs (not sure about the length - which could be additional work). What's that cost (on ave.) for pants? I think my guy was about 13 for waist and 13 for length. I'm guessing slimming the thigh area would cost a bit more?

    Got a pair of Florsheim Shell Cordovan Longwings today. Size 14 D
    They are awesome, in both condition and size. Anyone know of a magic shoe shrinking potion?
