Alligator / Crocodile Shoes - Page 85

post #1261 of 1268
@PedroHero That's ostrich. Ostrich leg to be specific. Depending on age, it might be Enzo Bonafè. They stopped producing for Brioni 4-5 years ago. No idea who make them now, probably a lower quality maker.

Not much love for Gucci around here. But the color is awesome

Not a fan of the effect really. I'd prefer a more subtle gradation in the patina.

Leaves, do you know if Bonafé produced their Brioni range with the same quality of make and materials as their regular in-house pairs?

I would think so but I honestly don't know for sure.

...the problem with out-sourced manufacturing, for me at least, is that after the new name is added, clothes from well-known companies usually cost much more than what the factory's own products retail. As an example: it is difficult to tell at a store if Brioni shoes made by Bonafé have more value despite the high price...or if the quality is similar but the price hiked up.

It would be naive to write off value added from brand, channel, QA, etc.

Might as well just buy top quality fake luxury goods in Chinatown - same factory, lower price!
