Walking past Church’s at ION Orchard over the weekend I spotted these, the Church’s Bi-Colour Leather Brogues, which stopped me dead in my tracks in front of the display window. From their S/S11 collection, they reminded me of my Prada Creeper Brogues, and I decided to find out more.
An esteemed English brand that’s owned by the Prada Group, I remember the SA telling me they cost SGD1050 (or was it SGD1010 a pair?). A little bit pricey, yes, even though part of me was telling me the exquisite workmanship and navy/white leather combo would more than make up for it.
Still I wasn’t 100% sure and decided to put it on my wish list instead. And going with my gut feel was right after all, because while surfing a while ago on Mr Porter, I came across the exact same pair going for around SGD478 or so after conversion.
Over 50% off, with enough change for a Starbucks. Guess I’ll be getting another pair of brogues pretty soon.
