I wish, but I think the answer is an overwhelming no. Kent's site states they forego sales (and other more gimmicky techniques) in lieu of consistently low pricing, which, given the quality of his wares, is hard to dispute.

But we can still dream lol

Couple shots of the dark brown captoes, coming up on 3 years of wear.

Those are mighty impressive. They look better IRL than in the online store pictures.

@PiCcolocV excellent stuff. How have they stood up to the test of time? they look to be in great shape.

You should submit those to @Kent Wang for a bit of store credit.

There is no better evidence of the quality of a pair of shoes than how well the age. That picture makes a damn strong case.

Kent, when do you plan on offering MTM overcoats for online customers?

Seriously. And, somehow, they had fallen off my "to be considered in next round of purchases" radar. Just re-noted to myself based on that pic alone - looking great!

...

Your pics inspired me to go and pull the trigger on the Medium Brown. 

 

Luckily for my Canadian wallet, they are out of stock in my size (10.5)...

After the shoes went through their initial break-in, there has been zero apparent wear or signs of any construction starting to slip. I know we tend to throw out the idea high-quality shoes are a long term investment (when in reality we all buy way more shoes than we need because we have a problem), but given there has been essentially no signs of aging after 3 years of wear, these are a legit "wear for 15-20 years" in my mind. All stitching is in perfect condition, sole is still just as tight to the shoe as day 1, no leather cracking since the break-in period. With the topy I added to them, it will be a while before I envision having to have serious work done to them.

How many wears before it broke in?

 

Do you apply conditioner/saphir/wax to the shoes? If so, how often?

I prefer to think of it as a well diversified portfolio...

 

At least that's how I rationalize it :bigstar:

It has been a few years so don't remember exactly the break-in period - think it was around 2.5 weeks for heel slip to stop and all creases to be formed?

 

Yes, standard brushing/conditioner/wax polish around once a month, kept in shoe bags with shoe trees when not in use.

Did you wear it every day for 2.5 weeks or the normal 1-2 a week?

 

I have 10 pairs of shoes and not sure if any of my shoes have broken in. All feel the exact same as the first day I bought them.

How are the width on your shoes? I am usually an F width in anything European and standard width in anything American or Italian. I'm curious about sizing. Thanks
