The brand is very well known in Russia; there are several shops in Moscow and other cities. As sartys said (putting political comment aside), this is a Russian brand, with "italian" name invented by marketing. General consensus among Russian iGents is that the shoes are way overpriced for what they are. Glued, and most likely Chinese made -- though obviously, being an invented brand, they may change suppliers and introduce new lines from time to time. Andrey

I wrote a short review of Mary Frittolini's shirts a few months ago: http://bespokeetc.blogspot.ru/2013/08/blog-post.html (yeah, I know -- the text is in Russian, but pictures speak on universal language). Also, a couple of pics of my finished shirt: As can be seen, buttonholes are sown by hand. Buttons also attached by hand; and the monogram, of course, hand-made as well. Machine-made seams are incredibly tiny and neat. Collars and cuffs are fused. Andrey

FosterandSon, thank you! -- very interesting. Andrey
FosterandSon, could you elaborate a bit on what lasts Mr Astaire prefered? Does he always chose the "squarish" last used for the correspondents? Andrey
Dempsy444, a wonderful review indeed.Regarding the "muscular" look, here is what Brian Lishak (now, of course, working at Richard Anderson, but the style is essentially the same):Andrey
