Corthay and / or Berluti should round this off as a barely acceptable (albeit underwhelming) collection !

    put a fork in it man   just for a while

post #18844 of 20750

Yeah I am stopping for now...I want to wait and see how everything turns out before I decide where I go next.

 

It will take several months at least for most of these to arrive...the bespoke pairs may take upwards of a year.

@PCK1 is a man possessed! Truly this is what is meant my Bigtimer.

Maybe you should go on a bespoke suit buying spree next. SF can surely benefit more from your sartorial sweet tooth.

Look forward to all of you're reports and pics...

   forget it   we'll be old as f'k by the time all those arrive

I am possessed by shoes...I love them.

 

As far as bespoke suits go...I don't wear suits too much. I am finalizing a bespoke sportcoat which should be finished soon.

 

I think my next bespoke adventure may be into trousers...

    did exactly that and started a game with myself  about 15 pair so far & all chosen to work with various shoos

post #18849 of 20750

Yes...exactly....I need some trousers to pair with the funky styles I have ordered from Riccardo & Antonio especially...

 

I want the trousers to highlight the beauty of the shoes.

post #18850 of 20750
I just picked up some new beauties from Franceschetti. I always remembered this brand from my time studying abroad in Italy, but they wouldn't have been a very prudent purchase as a student at the time. I haven't seen much discussion of their shoes on this forum. Does anyone else here have any experience with this brand?

Would those be Blake-rapid construction? Nice looking shoes...
post #18852 of 20750
Yes, that is correct. I know many on the forum prefer goodyear welts, but I think the blake rapid construction really compliments the styling Franceschetti uses. Their designs remind me somewhat of Martegani, which also uses blake construction.

I think hirsh hacked pck1's account.

post #18854 of 20750

You've cracked the secret!

 

My 10th order is a bespoke John Lobb / J Menzel / Swarovski collaboration

 

Its a tall riding boot covered in chinchilla fur and swarovski crystals.

 

the Hirsh specialty!

We could use a thread for odd trousers:)
