Weston has recently raised their prices. The 180 loafer is now over $500 in calfskin, and I believe that most of the lace-up shoes are pushing $700. I don't even want to think about how much the Chasse is. I should have snapped it up at $800 a few years ago when I had the chance.
jcusey, Could you rate Weston's construction method (appears to be Goodyear) and leathers? Thanks, John

Argh, take me with you.   Old England: Fantastic Edward Green corner, also sell Lobb and Grenson.  Otherwise very Anglophilic though decidedly not English -- despite the Turnbull & Asser, Trumpers, Fortnums tea and the rest. Fascinating place.
Grensons. Brilliant. Thank you.

WTF? Grensons are nice but are you pulling my leg? After the Paul Stuart sale and the Bennies shoes they're gonna be very expensive at Old England. Don't play with my mind, it's early. If you still want Frog-made shoes also look at La Cordonnerie Anglaise -- some of their own-brand shoes are made in France.

(alchimiste @ April 25 2005,10:25) Does Hermes make the shoes? If not, who makes them?
I thought it was Lobb
I think it was in 1975 that Hermes bought Lobb Paris.

I'm, uh, not a frequent visitor to NYC. Bennie's carries no Grensons that appeal to me. Regardless, the main concerns for me are fit and longevity. I have not had the opportunity to try on any of the English and French shoes, nor inspect their quality. Hopefully this trip to France will give me the opportunity to make notes and, perhaps, buy a couple choice pairs. The Grensons I simply want to make note of, in case Bennie's ever has something for sale that appeals to me. Or I happen to be in NYC during a sale.

RJMan, Are you sure that Old England carry Grensons? Last time I was there (latest fall), they sold EG, Lobb Paris and Church's but no trace of Grenson. Maybe I get labelblind...

Saw a Grenson sign when I was there in September. Maybe no longer? Dunno.

(johnapril @ April 25 2005,10:32) RJ, Is the creasing problem due to inferior skins?  And does that generally occur across the toe?
From our froggy friends (I keed because I lurv) at souliers.net: http://www.souliers.net/php/dossier/...g/DSCN1342.jpg Note that the shoe has apparently been treed and still looks like the San Andreas Fault.  I believe they were selling that olive wholecut for 1100 euros last year. Green and Vass will make the more presentable styles found at Berluti or Aubercy (the wholecut, the sleek loafer) and they'll be more durable.  If you want Frankenshoes, go to Berluti.  Given Olga's fixation with disfiguration (scarified and tattooed shoes, now the Frankenshoes) perhaps she should offer "shoe facelifts" for her existing shoe owners whose purchases have gone all lined and pouchy.
This is so very disappointing. It would stem from the quality of the leather, and perhaps the montage to some extent? I haven't received an answer from Xavier Aubercy yet. Wouldn't they use better leathers for the grande mesure, though? Je m'acharne, but I just can't believe it. I had such high hopes.

I far as wearing those, I'd say Deion Sanders.
post #90 of 93
were those meant to double as a weapon or to strictly be worn?
