What price for Bontoni norvegese?
The Official Bontoni Appreciation Thread - Page 17
Price sound good,
sound like Santoni norvegese for man on budget.
What quality of leather like?
Do norvegese have hand carved feather and true hand inseaming?
Cork under insole or felt or something else?
Hand stacked heels?
Any Bontoni fit like G&G or E.G?
And I keep wanting more and more of their long vamp shoes as they are things of beauty. So much handwork and attention to detail. Fit is always on point and styling is immaculate. Always get complements on my shoes.
I do have 2 pairs in pebble grain and waiting for my boots to come in pebble if i remember correctly. Ive seen the alligator but yea I would be interested in it.
My next MTO I was thinking of getting a string or tassel loafer with contrasting string/tassels. Any thoughts?
Justin - I really like the middle two tassel loafers in the attached link. Different color tassels would look good.
Yea thats the picture I looked at. I was thinking of doing a suede with leather tassels or even an exotic skin tassel
Thanks @justinkapur - I'm planning on getting into BG this weekend to get a fitting and maybe place an order or two....I'm really liking the Italian styled shoes these days...big shift away from my large English collection...
I went through that blog with the 40 pages of Bontoni's...its a pretty limited supply of photos from their collection...but I saved the images of some of the ones I like...massive upload below:
