    Hi Thomas

    I guess I can't PM you as you haven't put up enough posts? Apologies to everyone but I have some questions....

    I am interested in a pair of Arcas in Vieux Bois, and potentially Wilfrids. I have questions about the fit. I fit into the following shoes...(I don't know if this will help) - EG 888 last 10E, G&G TG73 last 10F, St Crispins 105 last (I think) 91/2 F1/2. Do I get a 10 or an 11? Do Corthays come in half sizes?

    Hoping to hear from you soon!

    Thanks in advance.

    Arthur

    Thinking of ordering a pair of Wilfrid in calf and suede. Has anyone received a recent quote from Corthay directly on Wilfrids? I received a quote of EUR 1100 (~ USD 1400) from the only shop that sells Corthay here in The Netherlands. That was with trees included.

    Thanks!

    I received a quote on MTO Arca's a couple of months ago and it was about $1550 with trees included. Wilfred, Bucy, Arca, Vendome are all around the same price.

    Thank you!

    They're probably similarly priced as you say, Texasmade, but has anyone received a quote on Wilfrid in calf and suede, perhaps?

    Follow-up question:

    I went to the only Dutch store that sells Corthay to order a pair of Wilfrids. Sadly, they didn't have any pairs in my size to try on, so I didn't end up ordering any. They also informed me that Corthay was unwilling to accommodate requests for two different-sized shoes. Now, I find it difficult to believe that you couldn't get two different sizes from Corthay when ordering MTO, but before I plan a trip to Paris to visit Corthay I'm curious to know what your experiences are?

    Thanks!

    I've never been to the Paris store but have ordered several MTO's through Leffot in New York City. I'm not too shocked that they won't do two separate sized shoes as MTO since that's more of a bespoke request. The main thing I like about Corthay is the quick turnaround. I've received all of my shoes in 4-6 weeks compared to my John Lobb Paris shoes which takes 4-6 months. Also Corthay will allow you to do almost any shoe in either 001 or 002 last with just about any color. John Lobb won't do that.

    Interesting that AE does allow different size shoes in their MTO program.

    As does Crockett & Jones. Personally, I don't consider two different sizes to be a bespoke request as you're just asking them to produce two shoes on standard lasts, only two different sized lasts. It's no extra work for them whatsoever. If that is not possible, I'm afraid no Corthay for me...
