Von Rothbart, it is a honour to have been added to the retailer list! Thank you very much. Thank you very much also to Rjman for having suggested it. I would just make a precisation on the shoes we sell. We have two distinct lines: - the...

Hi Grimslade, you are not blind at all. They appear quite different even in the flesh. In fact different styles can make the same last look quite different.... Fra (www.sw1.it)

Hi Grimslade, you would not tell but the captoe and the monk are on exactly the same last (a moderately elongated last). Apart from the style and leather, some appearance difference is due to the fact that the captoe is Blake and the monk is GY. Fra (www.SW1.it)

Thank you all for the kind and much appreciated comments. KPP, you find hereinbelow some photos which show the sole and the waist finish of the captoe. As to the sole the finish is the traditional plain finish used many years ago on Italian bespoke shoes. We can easily make it a bit fancier (an antiqued bicolor, by way of example).

Some nice photos and some interesting views about the relation between clothes style-colour and your build up-face.

T4page, I did not know of this event. I do not think Mario will attend either. He moves with some diffculties (age and weight, he is well over 100 kilos).
Thank you very much Meister. The compliment is even more appreciated because it was made with very little money and with our own means (apart from the strictly technical aspects obviously....)......
