I'm wary of purchasing from anyone who can't spell heel. I know, racist!

Not sure I'd ever drop $2,700 on a pair of shoes that weren't specifically made for my feet, but to each his own.

For that kind of scratch, couldn't I get some kind of small tymer bespoke?

It does seem like a pretty obvious question, doesn't it?

yeah on the surface it is a obvious question, but we've covered this time again.

if you have 2000 dollars let say, to spend it on bespoke for the sake of "getting bespoke not rtw" there is a few fallacies there but youll have to look it up
for one, bespoke is not always perfect, and most times far from perfect. and if you can get rtw that has the style and fit that is right for you, there really is no need for bespoke. and in most cases 95% of people can get by with rtw if they choose wisely who they like. bespoke is for the odd guy who needs it with a good walle.t . most here get bespoke for construction and materials superiority but you get that already with higher end makers in rtw. i dunno

Make sense. To be honest, I've never been disappointed with EG and C&J, my favorite brands.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
