So re-size from 12.5H to 11.5H costs $200, including a re-sole. Had no choice, decided to pay for it for the first of two.
Whilst I was there, the staff advised that if I wanted to get Craftsman in French Veal Calf, Black, it'd cost the price of the shoe ($495) plus the uplift cost of the leather ($50 for French Veal Calf) and a service fee ($30).
Guess I'll be forced to pay $575 for a pair of dress orientated black boots from RMW, as they're still made by the same people with no extra features bar a financial raping of my bank account by LVMH.
Starting to wish RMW was sold to Oroton Group - not sure if that'd have been better though.
