Interesting
I knew you had worked together. You can see him 10 seconds in the video on JL SJ featuring you, him sketching on a last. I thought however that a large part of the shape has been dictated by my high instep...
Sorry, do you mean you recognised the shape of the last being Steve's? I had assumed you were just referring to my thread on Steven Lowe seeing that these last's were instead plastic...
It is a 3D copy of Steve Lowe last, which my shoemaker has had made in Italy and then modified the toe box, so that I now have a soft chiselled and an almond version and get get two pairs of shoes made at the same time.This is a picture of the original Steve's last and the plastic 3D copy before modifying the toe:Edit: Antonio, my shoemaker, has designed both patterns on the plastic copy but the punched captoe balmoral further up will be built on the soft chiselled whilst...
And the pattern draft for my black captoe Oxford shoes on my bespoke last with a modified almond pointed toe box is done:
Honestly never heard of it. Caracciolo is the family name of one of the great aristocratic families of the Kingdom of Naples and I doubt they run a Sartoria, so the name must refer to a location (eg Via Caracciolo peraphs).As discussed with @carpu65 somewhere else on this forum, I consider to be great tailors the ones that comes from the great schools present in Naples in the period from the 1930 to early 1960's like Schiraldi, Blasi, Caggiula etc, and these are the likes...

You made me burst in a laughter with people in the office thinking I must be crazy...
With your intention of going full blow in terms of formal attire, and considering the evening reception and the fact that your groomsmen want to wear dinner suits/Tuxedo, I would think the best option for you is to go with the White Tie ensemble/Evening Tailcoat.Word of caution is that most modern evening tailcoat, trousers and white marcella waistcoat are not cut properly. Ideally the trousers should be very high waisted, the tailcoat should have the front cut out just...
I understand the ceremony attire, and you are making the right choice. I guess it will be an all male event and a separate all woman event, with you picking up the bride at some point.However, on the reception attire, sorry but you are confused:The white bow tie attire in your picture is called "White Tie" dress code, and it is the most formal classic menswear attire in current use, and it is not Morning Dress..It is mostly an evening dress-codes, but it is also used,...
