    Thats the thing, not expensive at all. C$209 before tax and C$235 with tax.

    Leather sole and quality leather for the rest of shoe. Made in Portugal.

    Plus are pretty comfortable.

    If you ever find yourself in Montreal, check it out. Thing is the sales person said he only gets 6 pairs in each size and thats all for the season.

    The size range is 40,41,42,43,44 and 45.

    I got these from ebay (photo is my own)
    They come in a variety of styles, some just plain black leather.
    All custom made and the leather is so soft and lovely.

    What do you guys think of the Jazz Shoes from Urban Outfitters? :huh:

    I need a low profile oxford type shoe that I can wear with a skinny jean. The white ones were kind of
    amazing but they stopped selling them for some reason. Anyways, I think I'm gonna get the black ones here.

    If anybody has any other suggestions that would be appreciated! ^_^

    I'm really into these suede shoes but I'm not sure I can pull them off.

    you shouldn't have a problem. Desert boots are easy to pull off, just make sure their isn't a huge contrast in color. Light DB's with dark jeans sometimes don't go well.

    Is it okay to wear shoes 1.5 sizes up your normal shoe size? or is it too much
    Going by the American system, I think.. which only goes up to 14(?). I'm getting someone who's going on a trip to buy shoes for me.

    Alright, thanks. I'm just pressed for time right now, so I might have to make do than send them back. I also like the designs that were sent to me... I found a couple of articles today on making larger sizes fit better, like this one

    great tips gius! I myself had a fair share of shoes larger than my own size (I have several pairs which are way too big for my feet actually) and I have been using insoles / heel grips and even stashing tissue paper inside the shoes to make them fit better.

    Anyway...

    Jil Sander from last season.. These shoes fit quite well actually :smile:

    ^Great~ I saw your site and it matches your style pretty well. The ones I'm after are similar, oxford-like

    I'm really glad to hear someone already does this! I shall dive in with confidence :-p
