    Sorry, I didn't take photos of the shoes I got this evening, but the attached photo is one I found exactly like the pair I bought. They're Sutor Mantellassi and appear to have been worn only indoors. The price? $230.

    Did you get these from the ebay seller out of Naples?

    Which RL sale did you get those Montgomery's from? What city and store?

    My brother picked up a pair from the Mansion in NY.

    No, I took the picture from ebay, but bought the shoes, which are a darker brown, from Jeremy's in San Francisco. The ones I saw on ebay were going for around $500 on the starting bid. That's why I felt $230 was a pretty good deal.

    Vass is, in effect, MTO in a lot of cases. Two months if you are lucky, three to four months if you are not.

    This was definitely an anomoly, but they also had a pair of size 11 Zegna shoes, black oxfords, for $160.

    Also a pair of Lobb black captoes with broguing on the edge of the cap. These were size 10 and were also $160.

    There were more Zegna shoes as well as Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, and John Varvatos.

    Damage from the recent RL sale. Edward Green RLPL Montgomery 888 last:

    Very nice VR. I shouldn't have asked to see them. Now I must find a pair.

    No, the heel of the Vass is taller, and the 'lip' is more pronounced.

    To Von Rothbart and others, I found the RLPL Montgomery black wing tip monk strap at the Beverly Hills store

    Naturally I got the last one in my size and still at 40%, so the damage was only $610

    Thank you so much for posting the pictures and information.

    I've been dreaming about a shoe of this design for years and was fearful I would have to do EG Top Drawer or G & G Bespoke to get it

    For those interested, they still have a 9D and 13D in stock
