its cheaper because of the vat reduction and they don't calculate duties, plus its 25 euros to ship. pretty sure once everything is tallied up at the end (excluding codes and discounts and possibly including customs and duties) it ends up being in the same ballpark.
i buy a ton of stuff that i think might look good and ends up getting looks. which is why i'm here. sure i might post a lot but i'm still trying to figure out what works for me but is also aesthetically pleasing to others. isn't that the point of this thread?
still on the fence on these Dries.. do you think they'd pair well with the lanvin trousers? looking for something I can wear anytime. these seem to look tough, but still sleek. they'd be my first boots though (i know nothing about that stuff).
because $250 is still a lot of money for a pair of purple chinos. edit: i should also say, i'm in love with the cut and fabric. i'm not sure how i would make the color work or if its too fashioney/flamboyant.
tried these trousers on a while back at lanvin and fell in love but couldn't justify the $500 price tag. found them for nearly half off though.. not sure if i should or shouldnt. even though they're purple, its really really dark and the material is so soft and comfortable.
