Definitely under 500 pounds. Better would be less the 500 dollars.
I was in John Lobb in Manhattan a couple of weeks ago and the clerk there was kind enough to tell me they didn't make rtw in my size and quoted me bespoke starting @ 5k USD. I'm not sure if he was just being rude but I really didn't feel terribly welcome.
I had a look a Church's on 57th but was disappointed to find that the shoes they now sell are not nearly as nice as the 10 year old pair in my closet. The leather isn't as nice for some reason.
I found a nice canali on sale for me and a pair of louboutin pumps for my wife - not on sale
I have enough pairs of AE's to last me a few years and am thinking about buying one pair of shoes for special occasions. I love Edward Greens but don't know if I'm going to be able to afford them. I also wear a 9.5E in US sizes so my options are often a bit limited (hence my collection of AE's)
Looking forward to your suggestions.
