Then he does bespoke as well.

Nah, I think it's:

Argentum (RTW or MTO)

Aurum (MTO, MTM or bespoke)

Those are hideous. Since I'm a nice person, I'll take them off your hands so that you don't need to live with the shame of owning something so hideous. rotflmao.gif

That's really nice, what is the facing material?

The facing looks like hatch grain. Great looking shoe.

So all Argentum isn't hand welted? I thought it was.

^^^Ok thanks! So there is one "line" called Argentum hand welted, and the other Argentum RTW and MTO is Goodyear welted with full leather insole/feather. That's quite unusual, basically the only other brand I know who does it is JM Weston for some of their shoes.

Yes....original GYW!! Thanks for clarifications

not exactly
weston cut and turn
had a linen reinforcement
cause the leather flap
is thin
this is stitched
deep into an
insole which is
as thick as used
for handwelted shoe
so it needs no
reinforcement

Yes exactly. But Weston also has a thicker insole than on regular Goodyear welted shoes, if I remember correctly. Maybe not as thick as a regular sole for hand welting though, which seems to be what Antonio use for Argentum Goodyear welting.

he said weston;s method
needs linen to strengthen
teh holdfast
his method
he says is functionally
similar in strength
as a handwelted shoe
since the stitching goes
thru the centre/core of
the insole
plus there is no
high wall like weston
or gemmed shoes
so teh space to be filled
is much less
and makes for
a lighter shoe
like handwelted ones

and yes
he says he uses
teh same thickness
insole as his handwelted
shoes; ~5-5.5mm

Looks really good, this pair. I'm quite impressed that Antonio uses reverse calf for his suede shoes. 

I'd ordered a pair, and can't wait to see how they turn out.
