Although you live in OC, and can afford LV shoes, I would say go for it. It's hard to say...

Are Tramezza's worth the money at $495? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=380110969228 I've done a search on the forum and the only substantive threads appear to date back to 2006/2007. Are the quality of the shoes worth it at that price or can I do better? If it isn't worth it at that price what's the most you would pay for tramezza's for the price to be right?

They're just a very fashion forward design. I've been in the market for some brogue wingtips and don't mind paying a bit more than I usually do ($500's usually my limit). However, every wingtip from the more famed makers all look bulbous and clunky. ...
I'm also considering Peal wingtips and their monkstraps. How does their quality fare against other major makers on the market? Can someone give me a rough linear chart and organize it with some brands like: Gucci, Prada, CJ, Lobb, SF? Thanks.
I'm relatively new to these forums but I can already see that everyone here worships CJ, Lobb, Vass shoes. While I'm coming to understand that their handmade nature makes them the Bentleys of shoes, I find myself not really attracted to their looks. Please excuse my ignorance as I prefer more fashion forward shoes. Long story short. I'm interested in some LV brown wingtips from their new collection. However, before I invest in a pair of 800$ shoes I'd like to know...
