The last time I saw US prices for JL, they were between $1.1k and $1.5k; which makes $450 on par with costs plus shipping. ...
Bicester Village: Church's - worth calling to find out about what sizes are available Ralph Lauren may have some English made shoes, although last time they did not have any shoes Charles Tyrwhitt have shoes for under £100 Dunhill, Zegna and Ferragamo have shoes; however, not fond of the shoes I find at the latter. If you only want Trickers boots then Northampton is the only option but even then, they may not have models in your size.
May seem like the easy option, but have you considered penny loafers -
You were 'high' and reading details about the lining. Be grateful that you did not leave the store with a Z-Zegna suit purchased at full retail.

Almost all my shoes were purchased on sale; however, that is not always possible - I have paid retail because they were not on sale or wanted the shoes before the sale period. The same applies to clothes, etc, sometimes you have to pay full retail. If you can wait for sale period and they would be available after the sale period just incase they are not on sale, then wait. If not or you want the shoes now; and they are affordable, buy them.

Personally, I would say look at different watches; although, from the options, the white face option.
£27 ($42) every 6-8 weeks Although the last two occasions I have used the top stylist who charges £39 ($60) - the first time my stylist was away sick so they charged me my normal rate and I rebooked with him. The annoying part is when I am booking my next appointment, the reception staff try to sell me Loreal products. My stylist does not bother, she knows I am happy with my current products.
