    Just a bunch of weirdos congratulating each other for getting their pairs and commenting on how beautiful they are. It is very creepy and cult-like.

    Upper-crusty British Accent:

    "I received mine!"

    "Very good, sir!"

    "Looking well on you!"

    "Thank you, good sir!"

    "Beautiful! Well done!"

    "Quite delighted thank you!"

    Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah

    LOL

    Same thing happens at the G&G thread with a huge void of bespoke filled by vender spams.

    BTW, what exactly is the difference between regular SC vs. SC x Koji Suzuki collaboration?!? Different upper patterns??

    I get nothing out of this line. As far as I'm concerned he's "some dude"

    In all seriousness he is a very talented shoemaker. The examples of his bespoke work that I have seen are excellent. Cleaner than his British counterparts both in design and finish. Problem is, he does not travel to the US.

    I asked Philip Car of SC when I met him at the Drake's trunk show about this and my understanding was that only one shoe was desiged by Suzuki but never actualIy produced

    SC x Armoury shoes have distinct upper patterns. SC x Koji does not, and those three offerings do have existing pattern counterparts. Being made on the same last does not help in distinguishing them either.

    Anyone have pictures of them side to side to compare the patterns?
