Lobb has an amazing pair of Perrier with a Price that was recently increased from the mid $4k range to somewhere around $6,500.
Please, tell me those prices are for bespoke ... please.

It's amazing to me that JL Paris is able to get that much for that shoe (and I assume that they must be able to, else they wouldn't keep the price at that level). Bespoke alligator or crocodile shoes form Cleverley in a similar pattern would cost less.

Hmm, these would probably be too big for you then - they are about a 9.5-10 US. Sorry

Maton, this is the price I saw on the Perrier at the NYC lobb boutique during the sales 2 weeks ago. They were marked $4,500 (I think) I inquired if they had them in the sale, after a negative answer, the manager told me that they had a few in stock at this old price, none in my size and that new order were now $6,500. It is a special order but AFAIK not bespoke. Lobb and Weston in NYC have a few special orders in stock at all time. Weston NYC, which I am extremely familiar with, has always a few Alligator and other exotics in stock, not all color and size but a selected choice and mostly in the loafer 180. Which is not the case with the 5 stores in Paris. Finally Weston has only a special order dept, meaning any request can be asked but it will be on a RTW size, no bespoke. A few years ago they had a  special MTM dept at the Madeleine boutique but it was discontinued. Iused it for a few pairs and really could not notice the difference. As for the Perrier at Lobb, I was not told it was bespoke, I think I could have simply said "Please order me a 9E, here is my credit card (or my kidney)".

Are you implying these shoes are for sale, j?

I was wondering about those shoes too...

Well, I would offer them for sale if I knew what to ask. They don't fit me, and I don't have a shoe museum, so I may as well send them along to someone who can wear them. Either that, or take them with to Japan for that crazy guy with the website.

I really wish those shoes fit me...
