As I figured.....distort what I wrote, put words in my mouth, avoid answering legitimate questions, rather, employing your paranoia.Pay attention to the last four words spoken here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wi9y5-Vo61wI don't care to partake in such adolescent posturing. It's like two hogs fighting over a Milk Dud.....you can have it, enjoy!Going back there was a mention of a John Lobb rubber sole (I think it was from BengalStripe) it's called "The November". I...
Well if anyone thought I was implying that rubber is safe to make and/or discard......I never came close to implying that. Of course it involves dangerous health and environmental issues. And if anyone is really that sincere regarding those issues then they shouldn't be driving a car (or bike for that matter). They both are equipped with rubber tires last I knew. For that matter if you are really sincere about killing innocent animals why use leather for anything that you...
Forgive me if some of this was covered in the previous 4 -or- 5 pages. I didn't have the chance to read them but will when I can. Crockett & Jones spent over 150K in R&D and over a year in time developing this sole: http://www.crockettandjones.com/news/index/aw16-new-rubber-city-sole The money I mentioned and the time does not include finally purchasing a beginning inventory. The chemicals used in tanning sole leather are so dangerous to humans and our environment that...
Most likely the hole is from a tack that is used to nail the upper to the last during the manufacturing process.Its very common.....
]I don't know anything -nor- have heard any feedback about Santoni's re-crafting service. In fact I've need seen a job they did. Not even aware of their pricing......
J.M. Weston, expensive but less than competitors in retail price ranges.Crockett & JonesEdward GreenGraziano & GirlingAs per pB's experience Saint Crispins is an excellent value.
If my memory serves me correctly you brought this up in the past. I disputed it thinking that's not possible for the cost of $350.00. You qualified enough to convince me that, that's what they do. That being the case, they are not only re-crafting but, they are rebuilding the shoe. How they manage to provide such an extensive service at that price and yield any profit at all is beyond me. Of course I'm assuming that they fit great upon return. Maybe a bit of another slight...
We are discussing two different POV's here. I responded to some people's comments that SOME companies are charging what they (customers) consider to be excessive prices for re-crafting. A comment was made that maybe they deliberately do this as a way to discourage re-crafting, for whatever reason. I responded that several customers made similar remarks to me along those lines.The point is, that's how SOME of those companies are coming off to the consumer.When I mention...
Although I was never told this directly (by any reliable company sources) many customers have been sensing this ^.
That's really weird....I sense that what he offered was not an option to you but, an advantage to him.Why not ask him the pro's and con's and let us know his reply?
