Hello all! I'm looking for some great stories about how you got a GREAT DEAL on a wonderful suit, pair of shoes, or other article of fine clothing! We all know that there are many incredible artisans out there who make beautiful products. We also know that the best often has a high price to pay. If you've got millions in an account and can afford to walk into the John Lobb factory & buy 10 pairs of bespoke whenever you fancy, more power to you. If you're like the rest of us (or maybe just those who live for a bargain), then you have to look far and wide... and be quick to find that ultimate deal. I ask this because I recently hit my own jackpot when I purchased 8 pairs of limited edition Santoni Norvegese and Bentivegna shoes for around $100.00 a piece. To say they were well taken care of is an understatement. Each pair looks like they were worn no more than 5 times. I still can't believe it! I woke up early one Saturday morning and found a 15 minute old ebay auction for 5 pairs for $400 "buy it now" with some bad cell phone pics. Figured i'd take a risk, and a week later I was nearly floored when they arrived. We did another sale off e-bay, and I've now got the nicest 8 pairs of shoes i've ever personally seen for less than my 2 new pairs of Trickers cost. I'll put up some pics soon, in case anyone would like to take a look. What's YOUR story?????????
