   you are right . . . . a different style should be considered . leaning toward a loafer of some sort thanks to you.

   enuff gladiating in my life, no need to portray

I'm also torn as to whether keep or lose the gator facing...

 

For me I think the gator makes it just a little too flashy if I wanted to wear it to work.

 

If I was just going to wear it on the weekends/not at work I would get it with the gator facing.

 

So you have to ask yourself how you intend to use the shoes...and if gator is acceptable at work

   oh i'm keeping the gator facing on that one  I think as-is will be a good bit more subdued than the gladiator

   regardless of materials choice . . . . don't have the stones for that one

                                             should I forego the gator detail at the laces

I must say that Suede is a great idea ... I never thought of that. But I'd suede but still with that small part close to the strings in crocodile

What do you think?

hi gianni, i think this model was designed a couple of years ago by riccardo for another dutch client, looking to improve, http://www.styleforum.net/t/251332/riccardo-bestetti-bespoke-projects/330_30#post_5032662. a bit of an acquired taste imo. but the leather looks very interesting. would love to see an update on this loafer! when will you be at riccardo's workshop again?

As beautiful as this is I can't help of think of it as the legs on a really ornate dining room table or something.

Hello Dear ... thank you for your kind comment. Tomorrow I will go to Bestetti to test my test of bespoke. So if I can and if I have it yet more photos of the photos of the coconut suede. So then I show you here in these pages.

@Gianni Cerutti - Gianni!! Take lots of photos when you go to visit Riccardo!!

 

And say hello to him for me!

 

I will decide soon the shoes he will make for me !

post #791 of 1207

And so the search goes on and on...and I keep discovering shoes that I like

 

Today I stumbled across the shark chukka

 

 

 

I like these alot but I think i'd go with a chiseled toe.
