    If I remember correctly, exotics take the base price (~1000 GBP) and then there is an additional for the skin. Croc/Alligator was something like another 1000 GBP. I'm pretty sure Luk would know better though.

    ^In no way am I insinuating otherwise. There may be going on there, but from what I know, that's a special price. My decos on order were about the same price as those listed at Bespoke England, which is ~1000 GBP.

    No way, that isn't even the base for regular calf.

    Like I said, I think it's some sort of special price (I assume you are referring to the comment about stingray).

    Really? I thought of something similar, but that would seem to put them at around the same price as a bespoke shoe, right?

    Certainly with the exotic premium, but when I talked with dean earlier this year I thought the entry level bespoke price was ~3k.
