Maybe he is capable of good work, but his samples did not show off his capabilities.
So, you basically think his shoes were "absolute shit" because of the pricing?
As an aside, he makes his RTW and bespoke shoes to the same level of construction (i.e. the quality of the leathers, amount of handwork etc. is the same). That's why (in the U.S. and most elsewhere) he charges only ~25% more for the bespoke. Lattanzi, for example, does the same.
