Plain only if you ignore the excessive antiquing. It really puts me off.

You're right, the antiquing on these is rediculously over done.

Not to mention the rediculous pick stitching on the uppers.

May be it's a picture, but the look is distorted, kind of disproportionately elongated, narrow and almost whimsically pointy.
Funny shoes for a courtier in purple tights and short cape.

Did you not describe these KC shoes that you own as "cool"? I can see why they are still available for 30 dollars. I think I will always be opposite of you when it comes to shoe style my friend.

That's original sin there.

In my opinion, the only part poorly proportioned on Kiton shoes are the prices.

Hahaha. Sad but true.

The gloves are indeed off.

I went to the Berluti store in Hong Kong a few days and I would have the say the Norwegian line of shoes looked really good. And price wise, I think they are comparable with the top of the other more commonly available top makers (Santoni, JL, Weston, etc)

I like the car-shoe comparison: Corthay: Berluti: Lobb: And the remark that Santoni quality is superior to that of Corthay can only be from someone who has either never seen a Corthay shoe, or a Santoni shoe, or neither. Santoni makes some beautiful shoes but the consruction on even the Fatte A Mano line isn't great.

Not much different to C&J. Certainly nothing to justify pricing themselves at 2 - 3 times as much. I have yet to find a Santoni I would really describe as beautiful however. Admittedly, I even own a pair of black captoe Oxford FAMs - the closest thing to tolerability I could find. Even then, I would not rave about them.
