Hi!  These Lattanzis are from his RTW line.  RTW Lattanzis are some of the finest RTW shoes around and use a lot of the same construction methods as his bespoke shoes except with a more standardized fit and sizing.  

 

Louis Boston has been a high end men's shop here in Boston for over a century.  (They were actually the first store in the U.S. to carry Lattanzis from what I understand.)  Thanks for your feedback, though.  -M-

Not directly Alden related, but wanted to praise Saphir Reno for a moment. Placed an order w/ A Suitable Wardrobe on Tuesday afternoon, and arrived today at noon (aka - superfast shipping). Decided to to a test run on my beat up Clark's Bushacres (a calf leather) that I had posted a few pages back to see how it behaves, what sort of dosage to use on shoes, etc.
For recollection:

After a bit of Mac-ing and Saphir Reno + Meltonian boot cream on top =

Boom baby. If you don't have this product yet in your arsenal, don't hesitate.

thank you for posting

Been a while since we saw a nice shoe, so thanks for posting unbelregazzo. Also, the prices of Allen Edmonds and Alden (not that I would buy them) is ridiculous here - €550-690 in the SALE!!

Thank you for the compliments.

I couldn't agree more. They are similar to the Berluti wholecuts shoes I already own (which must be over 10 years old now) - which I was wearing when I bought these shoes.

Paolo Scafora for Gianfranco Ferre. I'm digging the burgundy finish + the 5 deep stitching on the uppers.. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The sole shape is unmistakingly 1940's, a bonus in my opinion.

That's one of the most beautiful color of shoes I've ever seen. The stitching is wonderful and unique and I'd like to to have DWF's opinion on that, please.

Nice Ich; I especially like the Tricker's black adelaide (source?). The dark brown stitched captoe is C&J? What model?
