McBindle stated it best, and I echo his sentiments exactly. Do some research of your own on the forum, save the photos, and you'll likely start noticing patterns that you didn't otherwise know existed. In essence, data mine yourself. As for stores in your budget, I still really like Club Monaco the most. Price wise, it is at about J,Crew level, so well within your means.
Can someone liken the olfe last to another manufacturer so that I have a better idea on fit? I want to order a pair but am hedging on size [between an 11 and 11.5 UK]. They'll be shipped to France, so it isn't an enormous deal to return the wrong pair, but I'd still like to avoid returning if possible.
My assumption as well, especially given the shape.
Indeed, I thought that was implied, but thanks for clarifying.
Wholeheartedly recommend Bremont anything. They are rare and known mostly to horological fans and I'd argue that there is no better bang for the buck.
Guys, The sales in the EU stores are significantly better than the US store. There is something that I am considering that is 220 euros and over $500 in the US store. I'm willing to proxy for a few items/people, but I can't do that much just due to time restraints and shipping issues with my flat in Paris. Items would be a final sale (unless you really want to pay the shipping another three times), so there is that inherent risk.
I am still surprised that this item hasn't sold. It is absolutely stunning, and my size, but way out of my budget.
Fair enough criticism; most of the high end French shoes can be very esoteric, which I willingly concede. Berluti and Corthay are probably two of the more polarizing examples with the bold choice of color, patina, and leather, yet the shape of both is consistently stunning. To me, the arca is still the best looking shoe available RTW.
You find these shoes ugly? I'm very curious as to what you find aesthetically pleasing. The patina on most of the shoes is sublime.
Nice read...thanks for this. Corthay is easily my favorite footwear brand and company. I know that one of the craftsmen is a member here. The current windows are really well done...stained orange arca with an insane patina. I'll try to snap a photo soon as I live about 15 minutes walking from the maison.
