    at 3Gs - you might as well see what vass can make for you - perhaps through Mto through a fine SF vendor like noman.

    DWFII, thanks for the info. I got these off of Ebay for a steal. They retail for over $1500 and are RL. I have been buying RL footwear from day one and have never seen them screw up a pair of shoe like these. Resold them on ebay and still made a decent profit

    I guess unless you have a better idea of the overall quality of the guy, it is a bit pricey for an 'unknown'. My DC Lewis ones were much cheaper (I think :) )

    He also gets test fitting shoes and hopefully his own last modification for a true MTM. DC Lewis doesn't do that.

    Is it Jack Peng? Just curious.

    I used to have a pair of croc sandal by Herm├Ęs. Unfortunately, my Jack Russell mistook them for his chew toy.:(

    A thought came to me: I've never seen genuine crocodile or alligator shoes on any man I've met. Question is, who buys all these shoes and where do they wear them?

    I only wear mine on the weekend. Considered a bit flashy here in the NE US.
    You can see them worn all week long and during work hours along the South East Atlantic corridor.

    Really? And here I thought WASP mentality and New England sensibilities decreed that thou shalt not flashy, expensive croc wear.
