J. Amesbury Split Toe Shoes with Saphir Cream - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Beautiful work, Artisan Fan! Your recent contributions both here and on AAAC have been personally enjoyed by myself, and I'm sure the same can be said by other members. I look forward to future sartorial comments!

nice split toes. you meaning the 2.5 k for two pair so 1.25 per pair in USD or the UK price? (if you meantUK, then the price would be dramatically lower for USD , right?)
anyways, a black split toe amesbury, burnished brown algonquin toe FAM, and a captoe Lattanzi. nice luxurious collection.
how you get in touch with these bespoke makers i n europe like amesbury? do they do nice antiquing like the fams as well?

Oh good, you found this thread! I was about to post a link...I bought these for around $2K US back in 2000. Prices have gone up quite a bit. I benefited from a nice exchange rate at the time. I also bought a bunch of Kiton dress shirts in Milan at the same time for a great price-$120-150.

Most European makers travel to the US with tailors on trunk shows. Jason may be in NYC in November at the Benjamin, a hotel favored by the bespoke crowd.

Jason can do nice antiquing if asked. Silvano sometimes goes to the Louis Boston Artisan Collaborative.

well lucky for you, seems like most of these bespoke makers and high end shoemakers (lattanzi) only seem to be in the east coast / nyc area for their trunk shows.
only ones i can find around here in calif are Allen Edmonds trunk shows.

ive been very interested in higher end stuff recently: santoni fam, lobb, and now lattanzi
have you ever seen or thought about Scafora ? the consensus around here seems to be that they are almost equivalent to Lattanzi.

I would love to try the Scafora line. If T4phage likes it so much then I'm sure it's worth a look. The discussion here is the first I have heard about the line. I will look for it next time I am in NYC.

Do you know how much their RTW and bespoke lines go for?

They are not available in NY, only in Naples.

One's an Elmsbury and I forget the other but the EG folks can chime in here with the answer. I bought my EGs from the old Burlington Arcade store in London.
