The London shop was awful...

One young lad with longish hair , an old Boy and an incredibly snobbish young French blonde called Sidonie..

They told me not to say Chaussures but Souliers...

What a lot of BS...

The September (?) 2013 cover of The Rake magazine features Alessandro Sartori on the cover. He is the artistic director of Berluti.

The Rue de Sevres store in Paris has some gorgeous umbrellas for sale (hello to the rain in Paris). They are something over 500 euros.

Menswear line pretty much destroyed the image of berluti . Do you know where they make them or who produces these for them ?

Also a boot I found on mr.porter http://www.mrporter.com/en-gr/mens/berluti/brunico-venezia-leather-boots/441698
Which I found very nice but very very expensive. It looks like they are really comfortable

They're comfortable..

I only have one pair of Alessandro and I love walking in them.

They are black welted.

They're quite solid too.

The Venezia leather is holding well...

Alessandro is nice, it is on my list but tight now there are other that I like as much and less expensive.

The girls from JM WESTON were really nice and sweet and the John Lobb were just very welcoming...

I will never ever buy from Berluti again.

Enough said!

Are you sure about that? Delos stated in an interview that when Berluti purchased his brand, he was allowed to keep his workshop and continue to make shoes. Which leads me to the question: How in the hell can Anthony Delos be contacted? I would love to have him make a pair of shoes but I am not down with the Berluti schtick.

I would have told them: Because I want shoes made in France, not China.

^yes, i am sure (it was the 1st question i asked when the sale was announced).

You could have met him last weekend in Harrods. The store was having a "made to order" promotion with maybe a dozen firms (mainly clothing) were taking part. Most of the participating firms had sent personnel from their headquarters to discuss the finer points of fittings when taking the orders.

On the Berluti concession in the store, Anthony Delos was sitting on a stool, beavering away on a pair of shoes in Norwegian construction. So I went up to him and gave him greetings from our mutual friend 'RJman'. Although RJman hadn't specifically asked me to (I didn't know Delos would be there) I took the liberty and it was subsequently approved by RJman. So Delos and I had a little chat about RJman (they are both very fond of each other) and shoes in general. Delos must be one of the nicest men there ever was. But of course, I didn't discuss the ins and outs of his relationship with Berluti.

Had I commissioned a pair of bespoke shoes there and then, Delos would have taken the order, measurements etc and I presume he would have pulled the order through to completion, although I do not know how much of the actual work he would have done and what steps he would have delegated to others (there are 18 people working for the bespoke section of Berluti).

I believe that refers to the workshop as a location and a place of work, not as a commercial unit. What I understand from what I've heard (I didn't discuss it with him) he works mainly from "home", his old workshop somewhere a distance from Paris together with the people he is used to work with and is not required to come into Paris every day, working in Rue Marbeuf (or wherever the Berluti workshop is situated).

I believe Jean-Michel is the one who visits NYC. $7k for shoes are JLP pricing. eek.gif
