    Really? Which terminal? Are they on duty free and what are the prices like?

    I'm afraid I don't remember what terminal...it's actually part of the Hermes store there, they partitioned one larger store into Hermes and JL. The prices are duty free but I can't say that they're significantly different from US. But they do have models that I didn't see in the US such as these WII's and the 2010 St Crepin

    The Hermes concession is in terminal 1. The best way for me to describe its location is the "T" intersection once you pass security. If you face the long extension which I believe starts with gate 20 going through gate 70, the Hermes will be immediately behind you amongst that concentration of shops. It may be next to the Cartier or Bottega, IIRC.

    I saw the 2010 St. Crepin there myself 2 weeks ago... didn't care for it.

    I am now sure you are solely responsible for the deaths of the last of the free roaming horsies.

    I usually don't like wholecuts, too "elegant" of a style for me. The Bentivegna stitch toughens them up, I think.


    Nice. I agree that the stitching makes them look less formal.

    Interesting, but not sure how I feel about the stitching on the wholecuts. I guess I normally envision wholecuts to be the ne plus ultra of sleek and elegant shoes. To me the stitching takes away from that image I have.

    With that said, they look well made, and if they suit your tastes, congratulations on your new purchase! Wear them in good health.

    I've been to the new Terminal but not the first one probably.
    But after I get in through immigration, can I move from one terminal to the other?

    I think this is an excellent idea.

    I recall seeing Bally at airports but not the kind of shoes styleforum would embrace like JL and JL
    certainly is of better quality than Bally. Also, I believe Japanese businessmen would grab them at normal US or UK price and it should be costly to get them in Japan. Maybe I should set up a business selling mens shoes like On Peddar but with EG, GG, JL, Corthays, Vass etc. Even with normal US or UK pricing, they should be cheaper than what the Japanese pay for in Tokyo.

    I don't find distressed suede to be a good look.

    I don't think it looks that bad when it's done right... but you can't just patch it onto a couple of spots. The whole shoe needs to be distressed suede.

    You are right about the suede. They have some other more normal designs[​IMG]

    But anybody familiar with this maker (SC Napoli)?
