Gents, I'm thinking about buyig a pair of Cole Haan oxfords. I really don't need a new pair of shoes, so if the quality of these shoes are questionable...forget about it. They're made by Cole Hann and retail for $250 at Nordie's--which seems a bit steep for Cole Haan (don't worry, I don't believe in paying full retail). How might these compare to next echelon of ready made shoes (Ferragamo, Bally, Magli, Moreschi, Tod's, AE, et al?)? Second question, I recently read some old posts about a Ferragamo studio line. How can you identify Ferragamo studio line from their better shoes? I own a three pairs and can't really distinguish between the three in terms of labeling (pairs retail range from 275-425).
