    While I have never directed a statement at you, I will echo fellow posters in saying that I like you. You seem nice, and I empathize with your situation: post something you like on StyleForum that you know everyone will hate, proceed to get reamed. But this does not keep me from seeing the irony in your thread(s), which comes when you just go and buy the item anyways. I mean, I assume you asked the question knowing the responses you'd get just so you could post the Buy Pic for the lulz? The reason people say "is hermes man real?" (and to a much lesser extent accuse me of trolling in every thread I make) is because your motive defies logic. Why are you asking us if we like them then? Why did you agree with ktrp's admittedly excellently written post on new money tendencies, then buy the shoes? If you're using the shoes to get laid, that's totally fine, they'll work great for that. Looking forward to lifestyle shots with the babies plus the 'H' belt. I feel like you're the only one who's able to bypass the "no lifestyle shots" rule, so please make use of it! <3 EDIT: I see you explained your reasons for buying a couple of posts above in the interim while I was writing.

    it was money well spent i am totally satisfied with the shoe..

    but i still coudlt find the MADE IN WHERE label.. but i am guessing its made in italy like other LV shoes..

    anyway this was the second expensive LV shoe in the boutique there was a good year constructed shoe called Infinity Derby , cost around $1400... looks too old for my taste tho..

    Hey, I think you made a mistake.

    Just went to the LV store. Saw an LV shoes in black with the words 'LOUIS VUITTON' punched in holes on the side of the shoes. I tell you, the letters are big and cannot be covered by shoe polish and would be there forever. Anyone standing next to you, can see 'LOUIS VUITTON' on your shoes. This is no different from carrying an LV bag which states 'LV' or 'LOUIS VUITTON' visibly 5 metres away. You should get that.

    My LV shoes do state they are made in Italy. If there is nothing like that on your shoes, it can mean your LV shoes are made in some eastern european country like Estonia or in Asia like Vietnam. But that does not matter, since you bought it from the boutique, it should be genuine. I hope your LV shoes have the square metal LV tag on the side of the heel. Thats' how I tell LV shoes apart from the lesser knowns.

    This simply means he has already made up his mind and wants others to support and endorse his buy.

    But he didn't sign up for StyleForum last week; before he posts he knows everyone's going to rag on it because of the branding. There's literally no way he could have predicted a positive response!

    On a side note, does anyone know where I could get shoes that look like this where the design is something other than the LV print?

    This is honestly the first post you've made that I can respect.

    Without any sense of elitism, I applaud you for coming to that realization. Being from Hong Kong myself, I was surrounded by people like yourself always looking for the latest and greatest, most visible manner to display "success". Whether that be constantly new LV/Hermes/Chanel/Gucci handbag for the ladies*, the latest and greatest cell phone every other month, or shoes like the one you posted and the desire to walk around the mall showing off your orange Hermes bag...

    Hopefully one day you'll come to the realization that this is not the only way to show wealth, taste and "classiness". (Again, without saying that yours is the wrong way, or the majority of members here are expressing the "right way") - surely your income can buy you some very nice Edward Greens or John Lobbs in the area of shoes.

    Just to reiterate, I understand the cultural difference at play here and why both your choices of purchases and even your blog can be considered gauche.


    *To prove this point, take a look at the website of a highly successful second-hand handbag store in Hong Kong. Women would literally purchase a handbag from there, use it for a month, bring it back and exchange it for a new model. It can then appear they are extremely well off and are fashion leaders, with a new designer handbag every week...

    I believe this is called denial. Maybe he can find a few kindred spirits hi-fiving him on his proposed buy.

    These shoes are an 'evolution' of LV's Daimler patterns. LV has many shoes with the Daimler patterns in pony hair in contrasting dark and light brown patterns. If you have LV shirts, wallets, belts and bags with the Daimler patterns, why not add the shoes? I bet you would look awesome and the LV SAs would positively surround and fawn over you like you are Karl Lagerfield at Chanel.

    Wouldn't the purseforum brigade know what these losers are doing and laugh at them behind their back, hence destroying whatever benefit these losers get from engaging in this practice?

    Not to sound crass, but most of the women engaging in this practice in Hong Kong speak very limited amounts of English. [​IMG]

    Well he's enjoying his gear apparantly and, like mentioned before, his fits are actually not too bad.

    What? Havent you been paying attention?

    Its those large logos emblazoned on the complimentary paper bags he struts around with.
    Its those same clothing and shoes his idols wear and hence he wants to buy and wear, regardless of how inappropriate they are.
    Its those tacky stuff with brands all over them. Imagine buying a Kiton suit with K monogrammed over it like a herringbone pattern.

    Er, I thought the majority of Hong Kong middle and lower class people speak very limited amount of English.

    Correct sir.

    Thus indicating the wide-spread phenomenon we are describing.

    There is the group of British-cultured individuals that I am part of. Far less common within that social group.

    And yet you ended that sentence with a preposition. [​IMG]

    TouchÃ[​IMG]!

    Allow me to correct:

    "Thus indicating the aforementioned wide-spread nature of the phenomenon."
