    Yeah, I don't figure it was intentional. He doesn't typically sell shoes. these were probably his and he never knew the difference. I'm actually hoping I get super lucky and he has the other mismatched pair in his closet.

    I know I sold 3 or 4 pairs of shell cordovan at dirt cheap prices when I first got started, not even knowing what they were. I wouldn't be surprised if someone here has a pair. lol

    ^^ Pretty sure that tie is the real deal. Pretty recent too (2005-2007 I think Spoo said). Found one like it last week, but you've hit gold with all those Medusa heads. Mine is pretty much worthless with a basic decorative fern type print so it's ended up in the tie collection.

    I picked these up because of the newness/condition of them, but maybe I shouldn't have?

    Who makes shoes in Italy for Nordstrom?

    This looks a little sketch, yes? It's like someone just spraypainted on the logo.

    That's RTW Huntsman though, made by Chester Barrie. Still a good find.

    If he doesn't give you a refund, eBay will likely help on this one, unless he disclosed the shoes were not a pair. And one shell, one calf is, most definitely, two orphans as opposed to a pair.

    PS, dot damn you, thrift store tie haul! Made my compulsory stop this afternoon, found no ties, but did turn up a:

    Burberry dress shirt w/ HUGE MOTHERFUCKING BUTTONS. 17 L. Available, or will be stripped for parts.

    Awesome PRL long sleeve summer shirts, L and XL. I've also got a few new ones I bought, and never wore, and would love to trade them for a medium or larger small.

    Fit of pants looks fine as is, I perfer the little to no break look. I'd shorten the sleeves by 1/4" and inch though.
