I am from the US, and inquired about a pair of Corthay shoes. I was quoted a price of 1422 Euros by Mr. Chauvin!!! Is that how much they really charge in France? Or is that just the MO of the store? Thanks.

That price is ridiculous. Corthay charges about 800 - 1000 euros in Paris depending on the model. You can contact Corthay directly, but since you are in the US why don't you just contact Leffot as Pierre Corthay will be there this Saturday for a MTO/Bespoke trunk show.

Sorry to revive a dead thread, but I didn't think this question warranted its own.

Go to this link. What's up? John Lobb for 125€? I'm very confused.
