adventures in bespoke: Paolo Scafora pictorial - Page 2

I like it, good choice medtech!

Thanks for the pics and sharing the experience. Why only a couple of companies/countries can produce such beautiful shoes?

Do they sell RTW models at the factory? What's the price ratio between bespoke and RTW for similar shoes?

The 2 pairs of Scaforas for Gianfranco Ferre are currently my best shoes and I can only dream of bespoke for the moment.

As always, great thread! Your threads here now beg the question to the mods: I know you can subscribe to threads, but can you consider a feature allowing you to automatically subscribe to threads started by certain members?

Just curious; what are you weaing here though?

I had a shot of the double-monk alongside a different shoe with the color I ordered, but the pic tipped over 5MB and imageshak won't let me upload...

I was with her and Dino at the shop when she read this, you'll be glad to know it gave her a really good laugh.

I was really surprised as well, given that my first factory tour in Northampton on Thursday was my only baseline (pictorial in the AS thread). btw, I've decided to make up an odd waistcoat in that LP shepherds check you wore to Mama's.

I don't believe they sell direct at the factory, but from the retail prices I saw this morning in Naples (compared to the US bespoke price), it's about an 80%-100% premium.

I figured out the imageshak workaround for large files. Below is the double monk, alongside a captoe in the intended color. Yep, that captoe is pretty sweet too.

IMO Scafora's best value is from the antiquing and the Norwegian welt. I have considered getting a 3 eyelet antiqued brown wholecut with Norvegese stitching.

Absolutely lovely.

Look forward to seeing the finished products.

Some of the more traditional shoes look very attractive.
As for the majority shown, with the antiquing, etc, not for me.
Does Scafora do many more traditional styles, eg , like
Marini http://cobblersweb.style.coocan.jp/b...6/g.marini.htm,
or Fritzl's vendors?
