J.M. Weston Argenté



In my more business-y days, my fighting-of-the-power manifested itself in things like, preferring to buy my timeless dress shoes from J.M. Weston (FR) instead of John Lobb (GB).

So even though there are only two pairs in existence, seeing these extraordinarily inadvisable oxfords, executed in cuir argenté, is like a swift kick in the joailles.

On the bright side, the Artcurial auction in which they appear is possibly the greatest assemblage of unnecessary collectible luxury items I've ever seen.
