    SoCal, I was considering picking those up actually. They are special order only? How much do they run?

    Where were you going to get them? Chicago has them in a size 8 and 9, NY has none. They are $1940.

    I don't know much about Jil, I was hoping I could get them from Barneys or some place like that. Nevermind though, I couldn't afford them if they were even half that price :p I'll just look froward to your eventual WAYWT pics.

    Yah the handmade collection starts out at this price and are only available (this S/S season Chicago only has stock) through Jil Sander boutiques. Last F/W they had a great purple lace up and blue combat boots. You can check out in Men's Clothing the "Jil Sander Handmade Shoes" thread.

    If they are anything like the JS/Lattanzi's of yesteryear (why wouldn't they be), they are utterly amazing. The combat boots I have seen are perfection.

    Picked these up on clearance at Brooks Bros, trying to decide whether to keep them. Thinking they might work with chinos, khakis, cords etc. but they seem a little too sleek or something. Thoughts?

    Those are pretty casual boots. You should be safe.

    They seem nice, maybe change up the lacing when you get them from how they are in the picture to counter some of the sleekness from the overall shape.

    NYC got 2 styles last F/W, so perhaps they were testing them out in Chicago this time? Also, with the store being in a temporary location so far up on Madison and all of that, I did notice that this past season they had a lot less runway items than they used to when they were on 57th St. next to Dior, LV, YSL, Chanel, etc.

    Robin and erdawe, thanks very much for the comments. It's a $448 retail shoe, I paid $179 so thought they were worth a shot. The quality seems quite good.
