    Sorry for the spam [​IMG], but I've been on the hunt on ebay trying to find some quality, good condition brown and/or black cap toes for at least month now to no avail. I have many pairs of loafers, wingtips, split-toes, etc, but I've just never came across nice enough cap toes to place in my wardrobe. I'm willing to pay, but I just can't find anything on ebay that I think is worth it (AE park avenues in semi-good condition have been going for $100+ lately), and finding nice shoes in thrifts around me is near impossible. So I was wondering if anyone knows of some quality brands that tend to be undervalued on ebay. I know several brands that are typically undervalued when it comes to dress shirts, suits, etc, but I can't think of any shoe brands. Any advice?

    Why you buy this?

    ... Because it was $7 all-in and fit perfectly. Tailor fit, 40 short is acceptable, yes?

    But it's Banana Republic!

    ... I guess I'm a sucker for peak lapels. And it has a zippered cell phone pocket! Sweet, right??

    IT'S BLACK corduroy!

    .... well, at least it's only three years old.

    Will you wear it?

    ....

    Fairly certain these are AS handgrades (at least the current Bristol is). For Lefcourt shoes on Madison Ave.

    Audio guys - was I stupid to leave this behind? Price = $59.99 - 20% = 48 bucks plus tax

    boring outside

    interesting inside

    the cabinent itself is really nice, all hardwood, old, guessing 60's, looks like somebody built it. has a single speaker cone in the base, but obviously the item of interest is the dynacorp pas-3 (?) preamp... is this worth going back for tomorrow morning? no idea if it worked or not

    The RRL Selvedge from yesterday. Turns out what I thought was damage (hole on leg and lines at the bottom), is how they were new, with exception to the heel dragging in the last pic. I figure them at 90%
