Ms. Sausages sold her subs for under $300, plus shipping and custom fees ( if applicable).
I've seen this model upclose, and liked it quite a bit.

You can get them from PLAL http://www.plal.com/crockett.htm for 328.076 USD plus shipping but it may take a couple of months. If you are really lucky you may find some on eBay for less than that.

5 bills sounds high to me.

Thanks for the candy.

actually, yes. the handgrades just cost a little above $400. $500 is too expensive, imo.

btw, you can have plal send it via fedex from malaysia.

They're very handsome, but I think 5 bills is a little too high considering eBay and PLAL.

The actual shoe looks different. It's a lighter shade and much better looking. Not sure why they won't tweak the colors on C&J site 'cause those seem a good deal off.
Barneys had a pair of C&J double monks, of a fairly heavy-duty kind, with dainite soles that I last saw there about a month ago going for $495. Well, the freaking things have been cleaned out already

Speaking of price, Cole Haan retails gems like that for $425



BTW, C&J also has this handgrade model

Echoing Maxnharry, why would you pay that much, when the incredible Clifford is only a little more at full retail. I'd say wait for a sale that's worth, er, waiting for. Unless, of course, you like it more than the Clifford and can't wait, in which case this conversation is pointless and you should just go and get them! Consider yourself justified. That's what we need: a thread that's the "shoe equivalent" of a confession booth. When you need to justify a purchase, you post to that thread and (automatically) a response is generated that randomly chooses one (from many) reason why it's AOK to make the buy. Anyway, I've seen the clifford in person, it's outstanding. p.s. your candy has great taste in women (I

I just got the Clifford, with shoe trees, from Plal for less than $500. I strongly suggest you contact him if you are going to purchase C & J.






Q: Is it ignorance or apathy?

A: I don't know and I don't care.
