Handgrade RTW are $1125, no? Or you meant Exclusive?
Exclusive. I didn't realize a Handgrade RTW is available.
i wonder, that this model is called spitzderby?
As I understand it they now have two 'collections'. The RTW 'Exclusive Collection' and the Handgrades. They are discontinuing their 'Premier Collection' which was formerly their base grade RTW line. The price point for this collection was $400-$600.
'A Fine Pair of Shoes' has many of the new models from the RTW 'Exclusive Collection' up on their site as of last week. I'm no expert - but they look to be a good value to me - at around $600-$700 for most models. You can order any of these models in any of the available leathers. It's nice to be able to select the exact combination of model/leather you want while staying within that relatively competitive price range. They state about a 14 week lead time.
I personally have only one pair of AS shoes from which to offer an opinion - a 'Premier Collection' model on the 724 last. The shape is very much to my liking - quality on par with what I would have expected in that price range. Many of the models still available are offered on the 724 last.
That's what it says in the Reiter "Modellubersicht" (PDF) which I keep on my desktop.
It is from 2009.
i imagined, that you absorbed their name. i just have something different in my mind, when i hear spitzderby.
