Nice nice nice - but too large in size and in price for me.

I love the shoe and Barker Blacks in general. Wonderful wonderful new shoe line.

Unfortunately for both of us I wear a 9D.

I foresee a huge price reduction in these shoes when novelty of scull and bones wears off.

While it is an undoubtedly pronounced logo, the medallion is such that you have to really look to even see that it's there.. not as ostentatious as say, a skull and crossbones polo (I have one) or tie.

They're very well-made shoes, very nice leathers, and definitely deserving of a similar price-tag to say handgrade C&J, if not slightly more due to their styling. I don't think the prices will decrease a whole hell of a lot.

I could not disagree more. The position of the perforations on this shoe do not prevent it from being a total classic. If I weren't still a university student relegated to Ferragamo, Loake and Jil Sander shoes, I would certainly buy these.

'relegated' to Ferragamo and Jil Sander. I like that - I only recently graduated to those brands (Ferragamo anyway) and I'm a working professional as they say. Of course, I've also indulged in C&J HGs, JLs and EGs
Edit: Oops. I realised too late that this is a selling thread and I shouldn't really make these pointless comments. Apologies.
