Thank you my friend. I'm having the curve of the quarter that connects to the vamp changed a bit.

I gave up trying to do it myself- work has been hell. My assistant is going to take care of it tomorrow though. The other part was taken care of. I'm told it takes a couple of days to clear.....

I was incorrect. The pricing is identical. You have to pay additional shipping but that's it. The biggest concern are tariffs if they happen to hit. Can be harsh.

I believe the charge for the shoes was slightly higher than purchasing from the UK. No VAT though.
I don't know if this is your first bespoke shoe, but if so I would seriously consider Cleverley. They visit Boston more often, and the fittings are critical for first timers.

Nice. I have never had bespoke shoes before. I have been able to fulfill my needs thus far with the offerings from JL and EG. I am interested in eventually having bespoke shoes made but I don't know I am ready to spend that much on shoes at this point in my life. I will certainly take a look at Cleverley though. Thanks again.

Yeah I wouldn't want to get stuck with paying tarrifs on pair of $7,000 shoes. If It were me, I would consider a vacation so I could pick them up in person in London. I would imagine that would only add to the whole experience. Hope you enjoy the shoes when they are completed.

That is hilarious. Next time I am in London I am going to ask JL about doing sequined patterns.
