agedashidofu, a before-shot would be nice as well...
...that model is one of Vass's RTW slippers: http://vass-cipo.hu/Eng/Modellek_05_Slipper/Modell_05_045_Nagy.html I hate tassels so, naturally, I feel this Nagy is an excellent alternative. That combination of matte suede with just a bit of shiny calf is superb as well - well designed, ammanati!
Some thirty minutes ago one modest courier brought a parcel from Hungary. Little did he know it contained some serious pornographic content, best suited for hardcore shoe nerds (HSN) only. Weather permitting, I should have a photo session tomorrow -- with close-ups to boot.
I concur. Do you concur?
Is this Maftei pair made on a banana last? ...I have read about the banana model, but still haven't been able to grasp the concept.
I thought about the topic once I read of the relationship between disgusting African leaders and Parisian tailors from RJman. These tailors own their companies and usually have enough business to sustain the trade even though they'd occasionally show the door to a dictator or two, but would this constitute a breach of French law? They can show the finger and remain morally in the right, but would it be allowed by the authorities? The scum could, naturally, make their own...
Finally something novel on the brogue medallion sector! Is this a star sign image, perhaps?
I have a pair in vintage rioja. It's a very dark eggplant shade, close to black indoors, and I feel it can work as a substitute for black (which is an anti-colour). You can always add some black polish on rioja to make the leather darker still. Go for it!
At the moment this following claptrap is pissing me off: "Thom Browne established his eponymous custom tailoring company [sic] in New York in 2002 and since then has been credited with bringing a contemporary silhouette to tailoring, his style has become the hallmark of modern suiting [sick!]."
All this talk about wholecuts reminded me of this eccentric take I'd seen before: ...a wholecut over the heel as well -- in shell cordovan! Norman Vilalta made the pair, perhaps for a showpiece only, and he seems to be widening his reach with RTW and several interviews at the moment.
