Got these brand new at great price on eBay. Not my size but they were a great gift for my brother and a perfect fit.

He loved it. The color especially. I am slowly but surely getting him into fine shoes. First Meccariello and now Corthay wink.gif

Hello everyone,

 

My name is Chris Tuazon, and I'm a teacher in Shenzhen.  In my free time I update my own menswear and lifestyle blog called the honor roll.

 

I had a chance to photograph and interview a Maison Corthay colorist from Hong Kong. You can read it at the link here: "Kelvin's Colors."  While lacking in depth, I hope you appreciate his thoughts as a shoe artist.  Thanks for reading.

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

I'm new to this forum, but a patek 3970J is not a piece of shit. Bravo!

Great profile! Which camera do you use for your captures?

Thanks!  At the time, I was shooting with a Canon 70D with an 18-55mm STM lens; however, I just picked up the new 50mm prime lens, and it's made a HUGE difference in the quality of shots.

I am sorry to, Bucho

Have Been there once during my honey moon, not wearing the most elegant outfit for sure ( I mean, not with the kind of shoes and clothes caring of what they sell) but they explain and show me everything with passion and interest.

Good luck next time (if there is a third attempt biggrin.gif)

Sadly not only are the last thing i would call elegant as well but...

This is what happens when people buys because a blogger says is good because he alleguedly got free cash or a free pair for it as my expossed Parisian ungentleman among others ( 99% of bloggers)

Hello, link of the blog please? Seems interesting

Thanks smile.gif

Does anyone have any experience with the normal last vs. the pullman last?  I know the pullman is a little wider but not sure how much so?
