I saw the hunt derby and it is 2k, but the leather and stitch are so beautiful.  Also they have a hand made wingtip.  The weird thing is they look substantial ,but sleek and elegant at the same time.  
Thanks!  I just amazing how well made the shoe is...  You can feel the layering of the leather, liner and reinforcement...etc.  but the out sole is extremely stiff which might last a very long time.
Hi cracked crab: I just realized there is no metal eyelets on the Demi-chasse. Is it normal? Most of my shoes from c&j, Alden, trickers... Etc has metal eyelet either outside of inside of the holes.
 Crackedcrab thanks for your reply.  I bought the shoe yesterday and I agree it is unlike C&J and ALDEN.  It kind of reminds me of Tricker's but a lot better finish quality.  The steel toe is a nice touch.  I bet it will take a long time to break in.  feel extremely solid. http://nymag.com/guides/everything/shoes/27345/ http://lyramag.blogspot.com/2008/01/jm-weston-updated-new-image-for.html
I agree..... I think scotch grain looks better on this boot...
 I was in the NYC store trying the exact pair of shoe and it is so beautiful.  Is it still stiff after you break in?  Does the shoe stretch much?  really appreciate your opinion. 
I wonder if New York City has the highest density of cordovan shoe in the world?? I worked around Chelsea area and easily spot 4-5 pairs when I walk to work in the morning. What do you guys think?
I once bought a Viberg size 9 but Barney wrote 10US on the box.  Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks for the info Allan!  It is a nice description about cordovan leather.  This is hysterical to buy cordovan shoe to save money.  love it.
What is the difference between horsehide vs cordovan?  Is horsehide just any parts of a horse instead of horsebutt?
