I'm about to take a quick trip up to Hong Kong and Tokyo soon and possibly Seoul and I was hoping to pick some of SF's members based in those countries (and afar) for some input. Would buying a pair of shoes in the range of Corthay, Berluti, Artioli, etc. in Tokyo be nothing short of a rip-off? I know to expect a premium to be paid in Tokyo, but would I be better off not buying them there and waiting till i go to Europe, etc.? Similarly with Hong Kong. Or if I am in Japan I should probably try one of the Japanese artisans like Otsuka, Guild of Crafts or one of the many spotted around the country which seem to be regarded quite highly on the forum?
