the italian slimmer ones are my favorite because they come in more fascinating modern takes on styles.
makes my foot look sleeker, lighter, so i look more dashing, chic, etc.
i like to wear them more on nights out, not for business. for stylish looks, going out with my wife, dating (before my wife), etc.
I do agree... the Goodyear welted "british" shoes are more authoritative... but I do like best a more modern take on the classics... the second pair ( modern classic ) is also Italian, brand is Paul Casty and are lower quality and price... I bought them because they have a rubber sole, so I use them when rains and when I don't want my shoes get damaged ( a night at the disco for example). the Slim Italian are stylish and I don't use them so often... I fear they are too edgy.. but now that I see your opinions I will start to use them more often too... as you see they have a hybrid sole... leather with a protective rubber grid.
