Correct!

post #482 of 788

So do we have a consensus?

 

Also, my latest and final project (due to other ventures now removing any disposable income I had):

 

 

Something must be said for the work Antonio has already put in into perfecting the pattern I wanted. He really goes above and beyond.

That drop is very minor. But I don't see any cut in the upper? The trimming is not 100% flat. But I don't have any shoes where it is. The criticisms I had of Bestetti where instances where he seriously damaged the upper. I don't see any of that in these shoes.

Especially when I compare it to my Bestetti shoes:

ok . . . . in terms of full disclosure,  i'm a little too picky I guess

the question wasn't meant to bash your shoe or mr. Meccariello's work, just a touch concerned regarding my orders in process with Riccardo.

you've been there with both and I haven't

You're not to picky. We pay a lot of money for buying shoes like this. So we are allowed to be picky. I am picky too, otherwise some of those things wouldn't have bothered me.

I'm pretty sure your shoes will come out great. T4, some Dutch friends and I have bought a lot of shoes at Riccardo's and each pair we've received was better than the previous pair.

Wow, I sure hope you received compensation for those cuts, I would not be a happy camper if I got a pair of shoes looking like that! The slightly wavy line on antonios shoes is a minuscule flaw in comparison and something that wouldn't bother me.

Honestly, it's hand-made, it will have minor flaws. If you want absolute perfection it will cost many times this price, or you should buy machine made/welted/wheeled.
