New Cesare Attolini Store in NYC. Anyone been?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Sorry if I missed a recent post on this...I scanned for one. Hope this is not redundant! 

 

Was wondering if anyone's got a report on the new Attolini store in NYC? I saw some coverage on GQ site. Looks pretty nice from the photos I saw. And big? Seems so at reported 2500 sq feet. Nice. Curious to know any info. 

 

Thanks.

The site is owned by a current Attolini employee working out of the shop in NYC.

"The tubular construction makes this very special belt even more special because, as it’s worn, it softens, assumes the shape of the wearer’s body, and develops a fit memory, much like a hand-sewn pair of leather shoes from John Lobb, Santoni or Edward Green – or a suit by Cesare Attolini............"

So does that mean that non-tubular belts that gradually form a gentle curve mimicking the waist of the wearer, are just cheap belts of poor quality?

I do remember a past thread about foo.gif and his quest for an alligator tubo belt to replace one he had.

I don't remember whether the reason was because the tubular construction made the belt less durable and more prone to damage.

That passage needs a re-write, but I assume he means the belt's quality will form that memory "better" (?) (with more integrity) than some other belt - perhaps another in alligator? I don't know. Assumed. Anyway, I'd buy one if I had the cash. Hot looking belt. 

 

The blog isn't bad. Jury's out on his pictures, but he makes a clear case as to why they look that way, so point to blogger.

Meh, excessive hyperbole. All belts will eventually conform to the wearer's body/waist. That's why used belts get that curve instead of remaining straight.

I question the durability of pure alligator skin. Most alligator belts are backed by calf leather to increase durability.

As a luxury item there is no doubt that the tubular belt is awesome though.

I like to wear an alligator rope as a belt. PM member SpooPoker for details.
