Mouse & Hoffman suede English-made slippers -- might be worth asking what the text inside the shoe is:

I think it's interesting to compare the RTW version of this Cleverley shoe with the bespoke one displayed above. (The RTW version is incorrectly labeled as black.) Perhaps a good example of how a concept can be rendered more subtly and finely in bespoke than in RTW.

well done all of you, Wildsmiths have been made by edward green and co for years, however it does'nt mean that they designed them, they were ALL designd by my father and hid fore fathers, edward green wouldent know how to design a shoe if it turned round and hit him in the face, its time everyone stopped making wild accusations, Wildsmith have been worn by royalty for years and have been satisfied. this forum seems to me like a place where people with no idea about shoes come and try to sound clever!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suppose, that must have been the thing, Oueen Victoria saw when she uttered the immortal words:

"We are not amused!"
History does not record the second part: "Albert, take those silly things owf!"

Okay, this is not shoes. But it's really cheap, and does anyone know if Valextra made doc cases for Olivetti, or if this guy is keyword spamming?
