Tokyogator, you sir are a gentleman and a scholar.
Duh, of course! Many thanks for the clarification.By Shin Maru I meant the Shin Marunouchi building
Interesting. It appears that a 10% off deal just ended 5 days ago... Regardless, it appears to be very good value. What was the approximate delivery lead time?https://queen-classico.com/03_newitem/index.html#A002
I was impressed with the service and selection. The Sunday I was there they had someone from the factory in the shop working on a pair of the MTO shoes. I didn't realize it, but a lot of handwork goes into those even they are not technically "handmade". Since everything, including the leather, is sourced in Japan they can do it for the reasonable price.
Part of the reason import (leather) shoes are so expensive in Japan is that they get hit with a 40% import duty.
Well, I must admit that the first thought that came to mind was, "Bloody hell, she goes to Sacred Heart!?":icon_smile_big:So I picked her up at school in Hiroo (she's a doctoral candidate not a H.S. student you perverts).
Thanks for the info. I look forward to seeing some photos.Then to Tokyo to check out Queen Classico. Good stock of imported RTW but again overpriced and undersized. Their range of Queen Classico brand are quite nice, seem pretty good quality and the MTO is reasonably priced, so I took the plunge and ordered a pair of medium brown brogue boots. I'll post some pictures when I get them. If they turn out well I'll be back for sure.
Misterdonuts, the lead time is 4 to 8 weeks. The guys said usually closer to 4 weeks but because of the Golden week holiday it would probably be 6.
ps Don't get me started on Japanese politicians or the stupidity of the normally sensible Japanese who keep voting in the same bunch.

Any thoughts on the leather quality?
I'll try to remember to post pictures, as well. I ordered a black and blue spectator with red inside leather. I am looking forward to seeing it.
They had two prices for the leather--one price for domestic leather. Another (higher price) for imported french calf.
Fang 66: how much did you pay?
I think mine was around 35,000 after discount...
Just picked up my shoes. They turned out great. I'll try to post pictures shortly...
Many thanks for sharing the photos, tokyogator. They delivered much earlier than promised, didn't they?
Here's some pics of my Queen's Classico boots. Sorry about the quality of the pics, took them with my ketai.
I'm very happy with the result, fit is good, leather is good I'd say close to being as nice as my C&Js.
