What's the general price range for Westons? My general assumption is that they are a little pricier than E. Greens - is that accurate? If so, what is the "value added" in your opinions? [I guess general style would be a factor but I was under the impression also that there is more handwork done on the Weston?]
The 180 signature loafers retail for around $450, the 598 and 637 demi-chasse bluchers retail around $600, and the Hunt shoe retails for $1350. I get the idea that most of the calfskin shoes retail for between $600 and $700, but I'm not entirely sure. That makes them slightly less expensive than Edward Green. The Hunt shoe is hand-welted and has extensive hand stitching on the upper. I think that most of the other shoes are mostly machine-done, as are Edward Green shoes (with the exception of the upper stitching on the split-toe models). Edward Green shoes have a completely different look and feel from JM Weston shoes, although both are excellent in their own way. EG shoes are more traditional, sleeker, and have a distinctive antique finish. JM Weston are, generally speaking, larger in scale.
