Madison 800 (7000 last).
It started in 1996 so a good 17 years now.
Initially it was called Limited, renamed to Vintage around 2000, and renamed again to Saint Crépin in 2011. Would be an awesome shoe series to collect.
Price-wise, it's high end but eclipsed by other makers now, e.g., EG Top Drawer, G&G Deco, and Saint Crispins.
This year's model reminded me of 1996, a fairly pedastrian design.
Thanks for the info woolymammoth. Bengal-tiger also posted a nice write up about the St. Crispen. At over £1000 it seems a little pricey for RTW.
I couldn't find this on their website. Is this a new shoe?
Wow I really love those wooly mammoth!
Unless prices have changed in the last few weeks, I believe G&G is still pitched to that magical figure of GBP 990 (as is Anthony Cleverley). Saint Crispin European standard price is, I believe, EUR 1150 or so (which is about the same as Deco and AC).
I was surprised today to see that JL has pitched the shoe at over 1000 quid. ( I have a 2007 'vintage' which is marked on the box as GBP 730. So, in six years JLP has managed to increase the price at almost 50 %.)
No doubt, other manufacturers will increase prices soon as that 1000 quid ceiling has now been broken.
I really don't "need" any more dress shoes, but those SC2013 in Faded Bordeaux Classic Calf are just....
And they have it in my size...
+1 Couldn't find them either.
The whole range is here:
It's a boutique-specific model (to the best of my knowledge).
Specific to the JL 800 Madison ave. location?
The JL Vintage 2000 split-toe double monk is probably my favorite.
