They should have your personalized last. Marco was Riccardos business partner and so has a more operationalized mind than the artist. In our conversation he explained how different markets preferred certain lasts over the other. Asia is planned, hes finalizing the details.
Its so much better looking in person. Roughly 400 euro additional charge. Im definately eyeing those. His philosophy on shoe design is about the heel and vamp, my feet feel so snug and confortable in the perfetta. The wideness of the front hinge into the narrow toe, actually allows for some freedom of movement throughout the day. The heel feels like someone is holding them in their hands, heavenly. I will say they are actually shorter than GG decos
my order should be ready by second week of March, Marco is firm about an 8 week turnaround for shoes and 10 weeks for boots. During his trunk show this past weekend, I was able to get a better sense of his plans, He has hired more workers and is overseeing factory operations.

after giving the family some space to mourn for their loss, I emailed them several times with no luck. Today, I received a response from a Marco Facchinetti (marco.faccinetti@theblossomavenue.com) stating that he is the new owner and manager of production. He states he has been one of riccardos closest friends, over 25 years. a google search of his name reveals that he is an architect/urban planner based out of milan. We will be speaking again on Thursday (after he visits...
34 y/o married man. I am a nurse by training, my wife a down to earth physician, inhabitant of the big apple since I was 6 years old. I always dreamed of wearing fine suits and other classic menswear. I have finally made an income where I can make that happen and so decided to join this great group of menswear aficionados. I smoke cigars, both cuban and non cuban and enjoy single malt as much as the next man. I have approximately 16 pairs of Alden, 2 pairs of Crockett &...
