Do you know why Yoox would sell them for more than they sell for on their own website?
I can understand the italian - that guy is one satisfied Il Gergo customer
Generally speaking regarding the churchs issue, in the UK I have still not seen a traditional churchs shoe that does not say made in england, but there is a lot of fashion plastic-like crap with the churchs label being sold. Plus the stuff with spikes, with all kinds of 'special effects', etc
I found myself dumbfounded a couple of months ago when visiting the churchs factory shop in northampton (UK) -where the traditional shoes are made- as they had some plastic (really) churchs shoes for sale. I cant be sure but i doubt this crap is made there, I assume that instead it is shipped in to be bought by the naive people doing the northampton factory shop tourist circuit,
but who knows
anyway churchs is clearly moving further and further into the designer brand camp and i wonder how long will they maintain their traditional operations in the UK
