Thanks, Koji, but maybe I didn't make myself clear. Is there a model name? Are they still in production? Where can I find them?

Thanks!

I posted these about two years ago on the Buying and Selling Forum... I ended up shortchanging myself around $500 less than what I could have scored on Ebay...

Ready to Wear Silvano Lattanzi



The bevelled soles on these is amazing...




They are some of the nicest shoes I've ever handled in person. My other favorite would be the Lobb Jermyn II and Edward Green Grant (single monk) with the floating medallion for RLPL. In the stratospheric range, the Santoni Special Edition shoes and the shell cordo Kiton blucher at the NYC store are among my favorites.

I have a pair of Lattanzis, which have a great two-tone bevelled sole. The waist is colored in a dark brown with a sort of violin back design although it doesn't have the nailed SL initials.

Thanks, Koji. I was afraid you'd say that. I was in the JL store this afternoon, but none of their RTW loafers quite compared...

I did, however, take a shine to the JL Edward "loafer." If I can thread-jack for a second, can someone explain to me why a ($1300!) shoe like that would be unlined? What is the advantage?

Koji:

My Newburies and I are blushing.

Portnoy:

My SO's been in town so I've have less forum time.

Koji:
Those Berluti piercings you show are RTW, not bespoke, I believe.

Portnoy:
The Aubercies after which you lust are special order, not bespoke, I believe. Alden may have better understood them, but I believe that was a special order undergoing some last-minute antiquing in the bespoke atelier downstairs.
