All of this allows the customer to get a great quality shoe for a very reasonable price. Jalan has done very well in Japan and Korea. I hope this is helpful and I am happy to answer any other questions you have.
I have actually purchased to pairs of Jalan's from Unipair. Ox-blood quarter brogue and brown suede double monks. Quality is excellent and the skins they use are of very high quality. The shoes have work well over the last three years I've owned them.
Unipair also has a great cobbler service, called "Resh". I had them install flush toe taps on my double monks. The quality of installation and parts is as high as my JM Weston's.
