    Yes, I believe they do. I think they are made in italy. They make custom shoes as well.

    Never thought I'd like green shoes, but I'm in love with these. Wow, just wow.

    I wish I could wear some full alligator or porosus crocodile Corthay at work but being a manager in a Consulting firm, I HIGHLY doubt that equity partners would appreciate, even if I work in a country where people just have absolutely no clue how to dress (up or down).

    I guess I'll have to wait a bit or start my company which does sound much better.

    Oh, and here's one pair done by Dimitri Gomez, a parisian shoemaker

    Not typically big on derbies, but those are pretty sweet. Those shoelaces look like some old rope though.

    Things are this bad even in Luxembourg? I've always thought that with a GDP like yours, there's bound to be some serious menswear action.

    Hahaha what a joke. Luxembourg is an amazing melting pot of bad taste from Belgium, France and Germany. To be fair, at bankers' meeting, it's alright and you do see "ok attires" but by no means you'll see bespoke or high-quality RTW like Brioni or Kiton or else. The rest is just horrible. Even MTM aren't well made from what I've seen so far. GDP has unfortunately no impact on good tastes

    I had the thin hope of Luxembourg's high GDP allowing those in the know to invest in proper clothing. It seems more must be done to educate those whose occupation calls for an Image.

    The only thing holding you back is what your boss will think? Seems silly. There was a guy at my old firm who was a manager but had lots of family wealth and would wear stuff like that everyday - the partners didn't mind it - usually it was the subject of casual conversation with them every time he came around.

    For the first few days they might think its unusual and there's an occasion - then it just becomes the new normal.

    Well unfortunately, it doesn't work like that in my consulting firm. I get comments on watches quite often and some with some irony that implies that it isn't appreciated.
    I don't care and keep on wearing my watches. But I don't want to tease them more... for now [​IMG]
