    If you're in London go to a luxury department store like Liberty, Harvey Nichols, Harrods etc. Level of service is amazing (💁) and you'll find what you want.

    IIRC, HN sell a pair of black Louboutins for about that price.

    They don't do black slip on, nice shoes though.

    OP with £800 you can buy any shoe that's worth having, for about half of that.

    Versace loafers aren't great quality. As a customer put it - you're paying for the fashion, not the comfort. If you want the brand, I'd go for Gucci or McQueen - or Oliver Sweeney.

    in the jewellery trade you have to match the merchandise so £800 shoes and £5,000 tuxedos are just part of the job along with daytime drinking, cigar smoking, a coke habit and the biggest saloon car you can find say a merc s500 or maybach s600

    i do agree it just matches the suit but i think i might need a replacement so i'll probably shop the whole set in one go

    that doesn't answer the question as to why you need to wear a tuxedo.

    Why don't you wear a suit instead?

    i could but a tux just cuts through a little more but mostly i wear suits for small fry clients (under £50,000 budget) or just casual clothes if i'm making a cargo run (pick up or drop off for something b2b)
