Any NYC locals visiting Nepenthes store anytime in the near future?
Price was $600 when I inquired back in March. Trickers are always expensive from US retailers. And cordovan is overrated anyway.
$600 asking price must be due to importation costs, as Trickers is made in England, combined with the cost of special make up collaboration mark ups.
Still though.. lust levels quite high on the brown pair. If anything for their unique mix of shades and materials.
Cordovan is definitely expensive, but in all honesty, I wish I had the money to own more pairs! I own a few pairs of Aldens and they are incredibly solid and quite comfortable once properly broken in. As a material, also very hard wearing and requires little maintenance given the high sheen and lustre of the leather finish. I am clearly converted when it comes to cordovan.
