Isaia Group have two factories: One in Casalnuovo (Naples) that produces only Isaia garments (no private labeling afaik) Another one -Michelangelo Spa- in Frosinone (near Rome) that used to produce three brands: Michelangelo, Eidos, Sartoria Correale plus private labeling. Their jackets could be from completely unstructured to fused (very good fusing) or half canvassed depending on brand or requests. Always very high quality, nice cut and fabric in my experience, but...
Saphir shoe creams are very pigmented so they are perfect for a quick and persistent recolouring process (infact I avoid them for regular care using them only in case of scuffs etc)Choose only one tone darker than actual colour (one colour or a mix of colours) and next finish the result with darker (dark brown/black) wax polishes (toe/heel/broguing areas)I suggest you to avoid Light Cognac/Cognac, they are VERY orangish IME
Justin, I think that C&J dark brown grain before finishing is the same color as tan grain, if not identical very similar, so I suggest too a DIY recolouring from the original tan grain.From Gentleman Gazette Factory Tour, a Islay boot in the making
Wish these were a UK8, great boots and price
I've handled only the old AS Premier models so I could not comment on the quality of Hannover but I bet they are comparable to the Tweed C quality-wise.Between the two I would probably go with the Hannover due to the most classic shape.The toe of the 12508 is designed to be too wide for my taste, however they are much nicer in person than in pictures.
Simply click the size number, after colour selection.
I owned the Avon C Commando in the same last, I've found them surprisingly nice.Albeit this is a country last, I did not found it to be geneorous at all, I size up half a size to 8,5F from my usual UK 8 (C&J, EG 82, Loake Capital, Trickers 4444, Meermin Ron etc).I wear uk 8,5 in others lasts but rarely. (ALL Sanders Last, Loake 026, JL 8000)Hope this help.
