I just got two pair "on sale" for 700 bucks, including the conforming last manouver. I don't think the boys at GC are extremely happy with this decision, but with prices on EVERY type of shoe skyrocketing, thanks to shoody exchange rates and other factors, we have to go about our shopping decisions in a more more clever(ley) manner.
--That is great, sounds as if you have found a great value. In a different vein, IamMatt, if I am not mistaken-apologies in advance), had some Lattazni bespoke/mto/mtm etc. etc. but now has admittedly felt the RTW Lattanzi achieve the same fit. So thru trial and error one could admittedly find value in the higher RTW prices. Congrats again on your incredible find. Cheers.
