another great thing about EG RTW is the range of permutations of last* "model"* color*sole with special emphasis on attractive 'model'.
I have some 10 JLPs (Classic and prestige) and I have basically run out of shoes i would like to buy except for a Chapel. Many of the JLP RTW models are, to my taste, extremely underwhelming in terms of beauty.
My greatest regret so far is not having been able to dedicate enough time and effort to find high quality italian shoes at realistic prices. I am not talking about the big brand names available worldwide but makers that lie below the radar of 'anglo-saxon' forums like SF and sell locally or to continental Europe . I am almost sure there are great things to be had there but the logistics are not easy
