    I know Carmel rent isn't cheap... but these prices are ridiculous. :uhoh:

    Probably best to let the deep-pocketed locals buy these than an online community with a penchant for getting a good deal.

    Gotta price accordingly to other US resellers, especially Barney's. but then I would just wait for year end clearance or get real bespoke.

    I know...no point complaining. At least, there are some more reasonable options available.

    Odd, most of these manufactures have set prices that their retailers have to follow.

    Now this makes more sense.

    Although I just paid $150 for lasted shoe trees from Leffot.

    Maybe the cost of their lasted shoe trees just went up as well.

    Wow, I love how I can walk in and look around. Very nice. It is only missing the wonderful aroma of fine leather.
