    I want to thank this community. I have scored some Allen Edmonds in incredible shape on eBay. To the extent that I will first take my chances on eBay first for my next shoes.
    I recently have purchased :
    A black Lake Forrest basically new for $100 shipping included
    a black Mc Allister in the same next to new shape for $75
    A walnut Strand in great shape for $50 (!!!??!!!!!) free shipping
    A barely used burgundy Park Place for $85 free shipping.

    The only new Allen Edmonds I have bought:
    A Warwick at Nordstrom Rack ( They surface there from time to time) new @ $115
    And a Brook Brothers Fifth Avenue equivalent that was on Sales on their Web site for $185

    I don't think I will ever buy new shoes going forward

    Way to go! You now have a better shoe collection than 90% of the men in the US and spent under $600--awesome.

    Dude nice score! I'm trying to sell my eBay McTavish's (for a bit if profit while I'm at it), but really bummed about it cuz I really wanted to keep them. Width is great, but it's just too damn long, if I'm being honest with myself, for my 8w feet. Longer than my other 8.5's that I have.

    Unfortunately, the jeans (which have never been worn) and the shirt are a little too slim for me -- should have tried them on in the store. But the vintage t-shirt is all mine:

    I think it'll be ok. I mostly got the sport coat to wear to my friend's wedding in Hawaii in a couple months. I figure, I don't wash my sport coats very much (don't wear them all too often either) so should hold up better for me than for somebody who would wear it frequently.

    I've used same/similar stuff to hem up pants and take in a different sport coat's sleeves, which have been worn and washed many times, and it's held up fine.
