    It's almost €5,000 now I believe, for first order, about €600 less for consecutive orders when lasts have been made.

    Yes it's around €2,000. Don't own any, but seen them several times and tried them on. They're really great for RTW (as they should for that price), same material as the bespoke, hand welted but with machine made sole stitch and less worked waist.

    Not quite Euro 5000 yet! (though maybe the leathers and style were extras)

    Fukuda`s latest prices are:

    House style Bespoke
    Classic Collection from 432,000 yen [Euro 3190] (1 fitting / 24 months)
    Heritage Collection from 453,600 yen [Euro 3349] (1 fitting / 24 months)

    Bespoke from 518,400 yen [Euro 3825] ( 1 fitting / 24 months)

    Alright good! That’s what I thought, but was corrected by another person on Instagram who stated €5000, so thought he raised prices recently or something.

    It would be nice if he did trunk shows.

    I am thinking if getting the Ebony from the RTW collection, any advice about sizing? I wear UK 10F in G&G

    He does trunk shows, though only in Japan and Hong Kong for bespoke, but he’s been to London and Paris with his RTW/MTO. Not likely to do more bespoke trunk shows in the near future I believe, his waiting times are well over 12 months now and is not going down, rather the opposite, he like to keep them down.

    Think you would need UK10,5 from his RTW, but was a while since I tested and don’t remember exactly. Send him or The Sabot a mail and they help you out.

    I`m 8.5E in GG and fit perfectly into YF RTW 8 (for sd2002) ...I`m thinking half a size down works, as there is ample width. Instep is quite built up, and super comfortable for me. Insole (which is hand lasted) conforms beautifully to foot, unlike any other shoe I've owned.

    For those who own European makers and Corno Blu, can you comment on sizing? I'm considering purchasing a RTW Corno Blu, but not familiar with Corno Blu fit so hoping to compare to some of the European makers.

    I wear the following:

    G&G - 9E
    EG - 9E
    C&J - 8.5E
    AS - 8.5E
    Carmina Rain - 8.5EE
    Antonio Meccariellio - 9E
    St. Crispins - 8.5E

    If you are looking at the R147 last it should be UK8.5 for you

    Mine are
    EB 945 - 6.5
    AM - 7
    Corno Blu R147 - 6.5
    Yanko 915 - 5.5

    Thanks @wizy. 8.5 sounds accurate based on your sizing

    Just noticed that the last for the shoe I'm considering is the S145. @wizy, do you know how it compares to the R147?
