instead of excavating
more

Ok , I understand, the leather flap I mentioned but diffently to a 90º cut for norvegese.  Does that apply for HW shoes too, in general?. Thanks.

aurum and argentum handwelted

argentum rtw and mto
insole:



and for his test shoes
and cheaper shoes
for some stores
a gemmed goodyear


what i know
is that the first
insole was for a
very formal patent
bespoke oxford shoe

meccariello corrected
me about the second
photo for teh rtw
because teh pix
i attached was unfinished
the rtw insole still
has another process which
reduces teh thickness
at teh edge and
creates an external
wall

Ok sorry, I misunderstood you.  I tought the "V" cut was the one of your second pic so forming a "<" flap.  

 

So Argentum RTW/MTO is machine stitched (2º photo): Original GYW or  a la Weston.

 

Thanks for clarifications.

Wow, really hot sauce for a pair of MaccaDovers RTW shoes!! .  I would love to see a pic of the outsoles.  Is he already prepare to launch his line of RTW shoes?. Any idea of final prices, half sizes available and where to get them?. Thanks T4.

. I think the new RTW line will be much lower priced than that (do not know the MaccaDovers), may be around 550-600€?. Sure T4 can chime in.

Working hard for those MaccaDovers RTW.

post #2021 of 2288

I had been drooling all over his Tumblr for a very very long time; for some reason I didn't think Antonio would be popular because he hasn't updated his Tumblr in ages. I never thought to search StyleForum or Instagram for him, what an idiot I am!

 

Thankfully I came across his IG just before his launch of the website. DEFINITELY going to snag up an RTW pair (or handwelted Argentum, depending on price difference) once the website is up.

 

Subbed to stay up to date.

Antonio has been pretty secretive about how he is going to price his RTW line, even when I asked him directly. 

However, FWIW, I think we shouldn't have much longer to wait. He aims to launch his website by the end of this month. 

Apart from that, however, he does already have a Japan only RTW Aeris line. 

These are made to the same standard as his test shoes, and are GYW.

 

To guess at the price.....

His test shoes are approx 400 euros, and his Argentum HW shoes are approx 700 Euros. 

Given that his Argentum RTW are not handwelted. 

He would prob price them between 500 - 600 Euros. 

He has told me that his Argentum RTW are

"a little less refined than my argentum hand welted ,the leather is also different ."

Well, I did say approximately....
