who makes Gucci's shoes? - Page 2

post #16 of 32
im never thought of that, but i looked and it may be if you take it off you may see some sort of stump or threading maybe, so i would be afraid to take it off , making it more noticeable than a discrete gucci label.

i agree with you, and i dont think anyone will notice it unless someone kneels down and takes a look from down there.

Excuse the unshined shoes that had just been worn for a day.

But a deal I liked at $200.



A bit like my Weymouth but enough different that I will wear them.

Luckily it is quite small and mostly not noticeable.

Yes I quite like the shoes. Mine are in what C&J call dark oak. The cognac was only available in 9.5 D.

I'm with you on the notion of not providing free advertising, but can't help with your question. Nevertheless, to close out this thread you all will be happy to know that I pulled the trigger and bought the monks. (If you followed my comments on the AAAC thread re: buying at retail, this should come as no surprise.

When I make up my mind, I don't waste time. Besides, for all the reasons mentioned -- late season, risk of not finding my size, handled merchandise, etc., I don't pussyfoot around.

nice!
i hope you enjoy them. i really like those beautiful EG styled monks too (but for now my mind is sort of obsessed with santoni fams)!

i dont mind paying retail at all for all the good reasons for it. i have more than several shoes i have bought all full retail just because i want it NOW.


where do you go to gucci , in south coast? the one at south coast i usually go to Shoba, young man with thick black frame glasses and shaved head. he is the coolest and really down to earth.

laron, please post pics later. we would love to see them



oh, and if you go to the rodeo gucci, make sure you park at the underground structure at barneys and get it stamped. free 2 hour parking. if you didnt already know that!

Yes, Not a Problem.

Or you could save your money and go for John Lobb or Santoni FAM.

Do you like making responses that have nothing at all to do with what the people are asking? You might as well just reply to every post on this forum and tell people to buy John Lobb or Kiton.

To the OP, I'm quite fond of Gucci's new offerings. I checked them out recently at the SCP store and they have some pretty nice stuff, the last ones posted were beautiful.

Yes, but only if he can pitch some Italian maker like Kiton.

In response to this comment, I recommend Borrelli shoes.

Nah, you should buy bespoke Cesare Attolini shoes. If not, then just get a Silvano Lattanzi dinner jacket and a Mariano Rubinacci seven-fold bowtie.

Personally I feel Borrelli has more handwork than Lattanzi.
post #27 of 32
Borrelli shoes are currently made by Santoni.

Care to explain what you mean by more handwork than Lattanzi?

You know St. Andrews Milano has the most handwork, not counting bespoke Anna Mattuozo boxer briefs.
