    In Japan, they always kneel in front of a sitting customer... you've probably experienced that in nicer Japanese restaurants...

    haha, I only eat relatively cheap in Japan.
    There are plenty of nice place to eat in Hong Kong anyway.

    I thought kneeing in front of a shoe purchasing customer is a bit too much. Due to my chinese custom, men ought to knee only in exceptional situations.

    $8K.... well lawyers don't knee in front of their Clients in IPO offer projects....

    there are several "ways" to win the lead IPO...offer your client several pairs of $8K shoes.....
    stuff them in paper brown bags.

    Just got my JL TUdor back from JL after a resole. JL did a great job (though at a cost)
