    And these are on the way from London.

    I hope they look a bit better than the pictures but I love the JL prestige line so I am sure they will be great even if I can't figure out what to wear them with.

    Didn't mean to try and fool you, so I added names.

    Thanks!

    Catmere lined shoeboxes are very luxe.

    I agree. I think their selling points are finishes and some gimmicky designs. Some of them are very nice to look at, pure eye candy. Actually, I quite like some of their lasts. But they don't age well and crease like crazy. Good for display only. Pure form over substance.



    You can try StefanoBi which is about the same price level as Berluti at Vacca, but it does go on sale, currently 30% off I think. Afterall Berluti RTW is made by StefanoBi.



    Does John Lobb go in Sale ?

    Yes, in New York it's generally in the middle of the summer. I believe they are also having a sale in January. Prices are generally about 30% off, with none of their very popular models ever going on sale.

    The Lobb sale (30-60%) starts Dec 4th.
