    You learn a lot when you lurk for a couple of years. Heck, I should be applauded, no?

    +1, I have EGs and JLP to my untrained eyes Saint Crispins are much nicer in the finish. Recently handle a few pairs before I took the plunge and order one for myself, they are also lighter than. It has a feel of a bespoke shoes. SC is also more flexible with there MTO program willing to reduce width and instep is a big plus for me.



    The reason i said worth is relative is that it has mainly to do with the amount of money you have at your disposal, how you care to spend it and the access channels you have. If you are rich and not stingy and so cannot be bothered, then 900 euros for those shoes are worth it. If you would rather not buy things at RRP either because of choice or necessity then it is way too much, compared with what you can get elsewhere

    weren't you just asking people's opinions on some shitty american shoes, to then buy some EGs after someone recomend you to look it up?

    funny

    i bet you didnt know about the goodyear welted suits though, of the fully canvassed EGs.

    You're in the wrong forum. We're all ballers here.

    So... in summary you can't afford this, or are stingy. Oxbridge education not working out for you?

    You really think that because I clear out some less-not worn ties I have been 'bullied into selling'? You really think the true measure of a man is whether he 'keeps his clothes'? LOL you are a real idiot. [​IMG]

    Anyway, those shoes are beautiful and thanks for sharing the pictures. I have the same model in a dark espresso calf and they're my favorite (and best fitting) RTW/MTO shoe. What's the name of the leather color you chose?

    Nice shoes.

    I also got SC shoes last week. It was a two-eyelet derby. Should probably get more in the future.
    As for the sizing, I wear 8-8.5 in most of the English-made shoes and in the SC went with 8. I like how they fit.

    Dear Sir,
    I believe whatever shoes you buy, it is how they look, behave on the foot until your first repair (read 2 years), which is really important. Is the finish the same, does it last, how about the leather, does it stretch, it should of course, but how much etc. I am glad you are happy with your shoes, I hope you can return in two years and post a series of new pictures with the same smile on your face? All the best and happy walking!

    What are you talking about? I was simply home, wearing an old pair of Levis 501 jeans when the shoes came in. How better should they be?

    If you have the money to buy $900 shoes you should get some jeans that don't look like what every 30 your old man in the US wears. Something darker and not stone washed.

    Fuji: Thank you for your post. First, the cost of the shoes are 900 Euros. Second, I can wear whatever pair of jeans I want. I don't need your advice or anybody's advice for that. Third, let's stick to the issue, which is about the shoes.
