That gorge height looks good to me. I prefer it to the super high Neapolitan gorges that have been popular for a while.

Lower gorges also seem more in line with the way trends seem to be headed. Get ready for extended shoulders next.

Berluti marketing strategy is very bad. 

I saw the Tom Ford luxury sneakers yesterday. I thought sneakers were for kids. I grew out of them when I reached puberty.

Yuck.

That page doesn't even mention Shiota by name, does it - just "bottier japonais"? Isn't that a little strange?

No, not unless he has some great reputation. Is he very talented?

I spent one week with Yasuhiro Shiota for my last video. He is very talented, and very passionate about his work. 

Yasuhiro Shiota was in charge of bespoke operations at Corthay for long time. 

 

I think Xavier Aubercy was disappointed about his last bespoke shoemarker that stay few years, then left Aubercy to started his own business.  So know, Mr Aubercy is talking about the "craft" more than the "artisan"...

 

 

Meanwhile at Berluti.... fake laces !

^I though Chris Corthay and Chris Algans have been in charge of the bespoke operations, no?

Chris Algan became Chef d'atelier in 2012, when Yasuhiro Shiota left If I'm not mistaking.

I know that Pierre Corthay is not anymore in the atelier but his brother Chris Corthay is working there.

Gents-

 

Thanks for all of the great information and amazing photos. My question is this, if an American enthusiast wants to venture into this space, are there a few retailers in the states, that have a decent variety of RTW in any of these names?

Not to my knowledge

in NYC there is the Charvet corner at Bergdorf Goodman as well as Corthay at Saks (nice selection) and Leffot. Other than that there are the fashion brands (Berluti, Hermes, Lanvin...).
