It's exactly the opposite that. He wants and designs his stuff to be worn hard and on a daily basis.
I received multiple requests for more pics of the hidden lace boot. I don't have any more to share, but I'll try and post some when mine arrive.
BTW, there has been a topic of contention that comes up every so often which I want to address:
Did Simone Cecchetto of A1923/Augusta work for Carpe Diem? Answer! (Click to show)
I think @wormwood mentioned before that due to a whirlwind of... whatever (drugs? who knows) Altieri simply might not be remembering properly? Though that other guy who isn't much in the C-Diem style of fashion (QDR? Can't remember the name) also said Simone never worked though before, either.
Also, sorry if this is a bit of a rule-breaking question but I'm considering trying to sell some Carpe 7-holes that've been pretty heavily altered (professionally dyed to black, replaced the old laces with leather laces) and they're the slim-toe model with some wear and such. Any idea what sort of price I should be trying to aim for?
