Yes, the are from the last batch PnP received. Both are FG Cordovan but the leather on the handmade Goodyear derby is nicer. It is thicker and has a spongier feel to it.

So I've finally come around to liking Layer-0 footwear. Really like some of the pants I've seen too. The availability seems really limited, lots of stuff tends to sell out quick. What's the best way to make sure you get the Layer-0 you want? Special or pre-orders?

post #21468 of 22249
I think you can special order, estimate is 3 months but I wouldn't be surprised if it's more like 6.

I think it's really going to depend on where he is in production when the special order is placed. I've had everything special ordered grin L0 show up in 30-90 days except the sail hemp pant and goodyear derby; roughly a year for each. From what I've been told stores are only getting one of each size of each piece too.

Best turnaround I've experienced for special orders is LUC (2 weeks- produced item not deadstock) and M_Moriabc (30-60 days).

Turn around on m_moriabc was great, took a little over two months. Was looking at picking up some pants and a pair of derbies in reverse shell, just regular construction, not handmade Goodyear.

What's the best store to place special orders with? PNP?

PNP gets my vote. I've used INK as well with success.

Al Select quoted me at 6-12 months for clothes, 1+ years for shoes and leather items for current orders.
Take it with a grain of salt

If anyone wants to jump the queue, Al Select has a decent stock of shell shoes and boots in 41-42, one pair of boots in 44, but all $1800+

Liberte is getting these in derby form... might have to pick these up.

I'm going to make a thread in buy&sell some time, but if any of you want a pair of new, unworn Guidi 994 in black cordovan (can only get cordovan in custom orders!), size EU 43.5, let me know. Best for a size 42,5-43 I'd say. Will sell at a very good price.

 

Pretty frustrating story, first got them as a custom order and they had a fault (after 8 months wait..). Only one boot had a toe puff/salpa, sent the boots to Guidi with a request to remove the toe puff. They admitted the error and remade the boots completely... and added toe puffs to both boots instead. Unfortunately the toe puffs don't work on my feet, likely a sizing issue that's only apparent with toe puffs. They're slightly long on my size 42 feet. I'm a little fed up and just want to get rid of them ASAP :facepalm:

 

Anyway, they're still really cool boots, the leather is soft, thick and beautiful.

Nice to see the seamless pieces being developed further:

I recently bought some rather odd-looking biker boots by Marsèll from Mr. Porter for $225, which was 80% off the supposed MSRP. I find them remarkably comfortable, and they seem to be of good quality, but for my concern that they're cemented construction. However, it is remarkable to me that even inflated, someone would claim an MSRP over $1K for cemented boots. Nonetheless, they don't seem to have full sock liners, visible Blake stitching, or welts.

Aside from that, though, do people ignore them here because they are at too low a price point, or is there another reason? Design? Lack of originality? Construction methods?

For $225, I am happy with them, so please be open and honest about any failings of Marsèll!
