Corthay - Page 9

post #121 of 193

Leave it to SF to shit on no frills' pic. I just see a great suit/shirt/tie combo with a gorgeous pair of shoes. I see no flaws except for the watch and cufflinks that I don't care for but hey, it's style forum.
 

Great pair of shoes - enjoy the hell out of them.

Haha, it's no big deal, thanks Goodman.  I think my left foot is about a quarter size smaller than my right, so that accounts for the "bad" fit, but I also took a look at the pic again and my knee / ankle is bent at a pretty steep angle.  Are well-fitting shoes not supposed to show even a little bit of a gap if you're positioning your leg that way?

 

As for my watch of choice, well, here is my current favorite.  

 

 

 

I suppose there are others who will still say this is a piece of shit.  That's OK though!  Everyone is entitled to their opinion. smile.gif

Great suite, shoes, shirt, square combo.... But the heel slippage - the shoes are at least 1 full size too big... based on the angle of the left shoe... Corthay RTW a pain if you have above average instep and width.... I had to go up 1 full size on my Corthay's...giving me massive heel slippage...

Would that that were the case.  I tried 8.5s (one half size down) and they were way, way too small.

They look better in the flesh than in a window display setting.

Great looking shoes.

 

 

I considered getting a pair of these in another color not to long ago, but they didn't have them in my size.

Thanks!

Corthay has very few resellers, and as soon as you find them, you are lucky to find the shoes you like the most in your size.

Turnaround time for MTO is 6+ months, which also doesn't make it easier.

I saw them on Leffot website actually. Unfortunately this seems to be a pretty standard amount of time for a number of other shoemakers as well. But hey, if you want it bad enough it's worth the wait, besides what else are you supposed to do.

Last time I did MTO from Leffot I was quoted a 4-6 months but in reality the shoes came in at 6 weeks. This was less than a year ago too.
