^Thanks man; the pleasure's all mine. More stuff sold; price drops applied. How are the Jil Sander boots still here at this price?! I'm losing tons of money on them and just want them to find a happy home. Here's some info I included in response to a question I received on my FS thread over on the MC side, just in case anyone's hesitating because of a lack of brand markings: The insoles-- on which were stamped 'Jil Sander Handmade in Italy'-- are missing because the boots came with heel lifts, to which the insoles were glued. When my cobbler removed and threw away the lifts, he also (unfortunately) threw away the insoles with them. Lattanzi does not (afaik) write his own name in a shoe when making it for another line/designer-- but he does write 'Made in Italy' by hand inside the shoes (as seen in the last photo) and sometimes he writes the name of the designer by hand, as well. Compare my boots to the Lattanzi-for-Jil-Sander chukkha boots seen here: http://syndicatedstyle.blogspot.com/...r-chukkha.html I hope it's clear from the markings, stitching, shape, etc. that these are made by Lattanzi.
