Thanks for that. I am also lusting after the Lizardskin oxford, picture below.
The Paris shop is only 2 minutes walk from the apartment we are staying in. The wife now suspects that our choice of accommodation location was driven more by Carmina than by Chanel.
The problem is I will be in Hong Kong first, so resisting temptation will be difficult, especially with the possibility of new year sales on during that time. May need to distract myself with Bontonis and JLs :-)
This is what you do .. go to the armoury have a look and note what you like etc.
Go to Paris - if disappointed, email Ethan and order the shoes and get them delivered home.
For LV/Chanel etc Paris is cheaper than HK
