    Light tan Borrelli Luxury Vintage cap toe bluchers (EUR 8.5, US 9 - 9.5)

    Bought these from Gilt, but they're too big and never got around to returning them in time. Brand new, only tried on once or twice on carpeted floors. Beautiful shoes, just don't work for me.

    These are marked as size 8.5, and Gilt said this was an American sizing, but they are a half to full size too big for me (for reference, I'm an 8.5 in AE Park Avenues, and 7.5 in C&J 337 last). These are probably closer to a 9.5 U.S., but might work for a size 9 as well.

    Retail, according to Gilt, is US$900. Price is C$350 (or best reasonable offer). I can meet in the financial district anytime.

    WTB:

    Slim style soft briefcase. Waxed canvas & leather or all leather. Prefer leather shoulder strap. Needs to be able to accomodate a 13"-15" laptop (Lenovo)

    Like a Linjer style, full zipper on top, no top foldover/strap messenger style bags please.

    Or any recommendations locally brand new in shop, or for order online from an independent maker.

    Max budget $500 CAD.

    Jack Spade probably has what you're looking for, but locally would be tough. I've seen them off and on at various Winners/Marshalls locations, but none recently.

    Ernest Alexander also has something similar, but again, no local retailers.

    Thanks, I've looked at both of those. Jake Spades have the perfect shape, but I'm not sure they are worth the $.
    EA is nice but uses the foldover top. I also like the look of Alexander M Lynch bags, $350 CAD - only through Etsy it looks like.

    Ideally I'd love to buy something by from one of these leather guys/shops in Canada that are just starting out. I scoured Etsy for ideas/artisans. I emailed a couple, we'll see.

    Well if this helps, the Jack Spades I've seen locally don't exceed $150, and Winners/Marshalls most of the time gets their Waxwear bags.

    Yeah that's worth it, I see them for $300-400 on most online sites. eBay has some cheaper from Canadian sources

    Looking to get rid of a few ties, PM if interested. Can meet in the Financial District during the day, live near Liberty Village and willing to meet elsewhere downtown. These 3 Drake's are 100% wool - the striped one is about 3", the other 2 are 3.25". All are $50 - but the green has a very slight pull and some damage on the back (can't be seen when worn) so I'll do $30.

    This last one is 3.25" and is 100% silk. Selling for $40.
