Lane Crawford is supposed to be selling them now, but has anyone actually seen them? I've been to the IFC and Pacific Place locations, which are considered the flagships, and found no sight of them.

I strolled through the men's shoes recently at a few locations and didn't see them either (I did get to molest some Lobb Prestige though....what can I say, I live in Canada where they're not even available as far as I know).

I haven't seen them either at both LC locations nor at the Harbour City one. I am in contact with Pierre for a MTO pair. Will ask him as I'd like to get an idea of fit before finalising the order.

The waist treatment is very interesting. Unfortunately, while everything including the sales girls are on discount, Tom Ford is not.

So what are the price points for JLP in Hong Kong? JLP in discount?

Tom Ford shoes are nice, but the heels are way too high. Also no discount on JLP, but all Santonis are discounted, including limited edition shoes that have been sitting on their showroom for the past three years untouched.

Pretty high. The ones I saw were about $14K HKD at Lane Crawford if I recall correctly (which would be about $1.8K USD). Like maomao wrote, no apparent discount on them currently.
