Wondering if any of the experts on this thread can identify the maker of these shoes for Gruppo Clark (x-post from a thread asking this same question)?

My favorite pair of shoes - Amedeo Testoni loafers with red stitching.

Hi stachmo69, if you're referring to the Testoni ones with red stitching, I'm not sure if they're still around for sale anymore. I have had it for about 5 years I would say. Maybe try contacting Testoni? Thanks!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your Mezlan shoes are most likely cement or blake stitch construction. The welt stitching is false as indicated by the high degree of welt stitch length consistency (most good makers have tight, consistent welt stitching but you'll notice that each stitch appears to be exactly the same length as the last, a tough thing to accomplish when stitching a midsole or outsole to the welt), as well as a welt seam with no stitching connecting the ends of welt together.  Also the welt looks plastic rather than leather, but I don't have any evidence of that, just basing that off experience.

It appears that you are a professional shoe aficionado but thanks, I could care less, the shoes look nice, at least to me, and that's all that matters.:D

Yes, by all means enjoy your shoes

Testoni use to make some very good shoes. Lots of junk now floating around. If you search, you can still find some of the better made shoes.
