    Are pretty much any Alden shoes worth picking up? I just remembered that I also had to leave behind a pair of 8.5 B/D Alden tassel loafers, but at the time I wasn't that sad because they were scuffed up and the looked pretty worn on the soles and heels. Now I am thinking they would have sold anyways.

    Just look at the ebay completed auction....the cheapest Aldens go for $20-$30 + shipping and up from there, so if they are less then that and you think they might clean up then you have no risk except for some time and effort in cleaning and polishing.

    Thanks. I am very dense. I never, ever think to check those darn completed listings. I doubt they are still there, but maybe I'll make a trip up because I also left behind some E. Zegna. Could get lucky or find something else good, right?

    Taking a look back over at AAAC reminded me why I don't visit very often anymore. It also made me wonder whether I should make an effort to sell some stuff that is the wrong size/style for the SF crowd (larger sizes, pleats, sack suits, traditional fit BB shirts) over at AAAC. Anyone sell or trade over there? Worth the trouble?

    Aldens, huh???? No, I won't rush down 400 to beat you to them.

    If we're talking about the same place, that's were I scored the sweet Alden nubuck wingtips that are currently awaiting a bidding war on ebay.

    I've been tempted. But you need a certain number of posts before you can sell, and I don't have the kind of time needed to invest in that.

    Mainy - beautiful shoes. Fabulous finds as usual.

    Canali Blue/White Stripe - (no size tag but measures 15.5 neck with a 22 p2p)

    [​IMG]

    Lorenzini Blue/Green Stripe - (no size tag but measures 16.5 neck with a 22 p2p)

    [​IMG]

    Corneliani Solid Blue with Hidden Button Down Collar - (marked "Small" but measures 15 neck and a 21 p2p)

    [​IMG]
    Jil Sander Solid White (Marked as a 17, about 22 p2p)

    [​IMG]

    BBGF Polo (Marked as a Medium, measures about 19/20 p2p.)

    [​IMG]

    I believe the BBGF is actually NOS as it still had the Filene's Basement tag on it. Not sure how that made it out to LA. I was going to keep this, but the arms are too small.

    Everything is available.
