Styleforum Top Pickspost #3197 of 110671/16/13 at 8:39amBTW, Barney's still has this tan suede Chukka in US 9 for only $259:
Pretty sure it's a tan version of this:
Not sure about those laces, but laces are cheap. Pretty good deal for anyone who's a size 9.post #3198 of 110671/16/13 at 8:56ampost #3199 of 110671/16/13 at 12:58pmpost #3200 of 110671/16/13 at 1:19pmpost #3201 of 110671/16/13 at 1:25pmpost #3202 of 110671/17/13 at 1:18pmQuote:Originally Posted by Journeyman
Unless you are really dying to own a Japan-only model, don't buy your C&Js in Japan because, as indicated earlier in the thread, you will pay a massive premium to do so. C&Js in Japan cost about $300 more than they do in the US/UK.
Anyway, there are quite a few places that stock C&J in Tokyo, including the shoe basement in the Isetan Men's Annex in Shinjuku, in other department stores such as Takashimaya Times Square in Shinjuku, and "Lifegear - Trading Post" in Ginza, Shibuya and Aoyama.
wow, thanks for the warning!
I might take a look, though.post #3203 of 110671/17/13 at 2:07pmpost #3204 of 110671/17/13 at 2:47pmpost #3205 of 110671/17/13 at 2:56pmpost #3206 of 110671/17/13 at 8:35pmpost #3207 of 110671/17/13 at 8:56pmpost #3208 of 110671/17/13 at 8:57pmpost #3209 of 110671/17/13 at 9:00pmpost #3210 of 110671/17/13 at 9:02pmQuote:
Alden cordovan has a better luster, they do this much better than any others I am aware of.
The cordovan comes from the same place that Crockett & Jones and some others use, but they just finish or dye it better.
