Robinson's Shoemakers is having 15‰ sales on everything until 2nd May. Free worldwide delivery for order above £150. Hurry. Promotional code: Bank 15. After 15% discount, my Barker Flynn (Made in England) only cost around RM770. What a steal!

Nice brogue you ordered! Post some pic when you received your beautiful shoes! A sweet deal, of course but not sure how much cheaper compared to PLal....

The cheapest I could get from P Lal is Loake 1880 at rm930, but nothing that I like or in my size.

I remember those days there was a Bruno Magli shop in KLCC. I dont think they have retailers in Malaysia currently.

Lobb is always the best !!

Depends on one's perspectives.

I disagree, but not entirely. Lobb is one of the best - I agree but not always the best! Too many variables to consider when it comes to RTW market - suitability of lasts with your feet, etc. Now we are blessed and spoilt with choices in the RTW market - the likes of John Lobb of course, Ed green, Cleverly, JM Weston, Aubercy, Corthay, Berluti, Saint Crispins, Stefano Bemer and many others! It's like saying Rolls Royce is always the best or Rolex is always the best! A fallacy at its best.

Bespoke is always the best if one could afford it. Even bespoke crockett jones cost much more than RTW Lobb or any other RTW for that matter - but not a fair comparison obviously! And, shoes from Japanese makers are really good quality - at par or at times better than the European rivals!

afaik, there is no longer any Alfred Sargent Classic. AS now has only two lines, namely AS Exclusive and AS Handgrade.
Loake has another range above Loake 1880 which is Loake 1880 Export Grade.
