The colour and design of the shoes are somewhat similar to the pic in post #1 of this thread.
Guess I'll try it with charcoal trousers next.

i believe the seller already advertised in some local forum on the same pair of shoes. At that time, he was offering it for RM800, so apparebtly he has hiked up the price to sell in SF. Very nice pair, if not the fact i just kopped the Lowndess, I will have kopped it.

Oh dear... I am looking for a pair of shortwings and I might fit those Drummonds... However, I'm looking for calfskin so I might be safe!

Crap, this is so tempting.I'm a UK8F, I'm x sure if this would be too big for me...

Owh man, there's a pair of double monks in my size...hmmm..x sure I'm willing to pay RM1200 for a pair of used shoes even if it's Vass...would rather but Carmina's by adding another RM300...

They're my size but I've decided to save up for other things. Oh well, there's always a better deal around the corner, next time...

What are you gents aiming for? I am half-heartedly aiming for an Edward Green 'Dover' but I really must try on the various lasts before I drop that kind of money on a pair of shoes!

It is but that's where you usually get the best deals.

You guys are all big timers. I'm aiming for C&J, Finsbury or Hallam.

I think it's okay to buy online if you have something to compare to. Lots of guys on SF are comparing the size differences between the makers. So if you have a common pair of shoes you can decipher the codes and get a pretty good fit. But personally I'd much prefer to try them on before I drop a limb for it. Every shoe fits differently on another dude's feet, feels different, looks different, and all that. Vass is cheaper sex than EG but just as good (depending on who you ask). I think with the exception of me, a small timer. Everyone here is medium timer upwards.

I occasionally dredge the bay in search of vintage English shoes. Here's one I lost out on:
